Today I would like to raise for discussion and sharing one of my most favorite topics: Cooking! (food:)). Since I was 5-6 years old I started cooking. I was amazed by the ability to make the treats and the food I liked the most, on my own. Although my skills were quite limited at the time I really enjoyed cooking:). I didn't abandon this passion and over the last few years I took it one step further and started making my favorite snacks (that you would usually buy in a bag) and finger food like:
Bissli- Spicy fried pasta
Falafel- Fried chickpea mixture
Shakshuka- Tomato sauce with poached eggs
Hummus- I think I don't need to explain this one:)
Sweet Potato Chips
I was even fortunate to conduct a virtual cooking workshop for approx. 200+ people and I was relived that the Pita bread came out just as expected :).
I'd be happy to share with you the recipes if you'd be interested :). But more importantly I would love to hear what is your favorite dish that you enjoy cooking or snack:).
Hehe 🤗 As requested:
There are a few dishes that are my responsibility at home:
Grill during the summer
My most common dish is a burger with halloumi cheese and grilled sweet potatoes with coarse-grained salt and yoghurt (I fall in love with them during my one and only trip to Tel Aviv)
My dream is to get the perfect home-made chimichurri, but I am still experimenting with it.
Roasted chicken (or sometimes fish) during the winter
My typical Saturday breakfast for family
is a bagel/toast with cream-cheese, smoked salmon and an egg.
And my favorite dish for a quick dinner
is pasta with olives, garlic, lemon, rucola (missing on this picture) and Parmigiano.
This whole post made me hungry, so I need to log off and go look for some food now 😋
Smacznego / Смачного / Bon appetit!
The cut‘s are a choice depending on what type you like - for example a Flank Steak vs a Rumpsteak vs a Tomahawk - all are different types of cut with different properties. In terms of prep - I prefer dry rub but again I‘m discovering each type of cut works a bit differently. So start with the cut you like and go from there. I‘m partial to the Flank and Tritip 🙂
I like scones. heres a recipe from a scottish newspaper, though I always associated them with Devon and Cornwall way down in southeern England.
They are typical tea time cakes served with clotted cream (which is slightly acidic) and jam. and a good tea, maybe Assam or Darjeeling.
Perfect between the hours of 4pm and 6pm. But no one will mind if you eat them in the morning.
We do shakshouka (which literally means something like "a mess") quite often during weekends with grilled vegetables left-overs from a previous day 🙂 Put all leftovers on a pan, add cumin, tomato sauce, eggs... grab a piece of white bread, and it is delicious!
@moshenaveh , what is your receipt?
