Sous Vide Duck Breast

Yesterday’s Dinner for two. I should really work on the presentation, but – man! – this was delicious! The sous vide gadget makes sure the duck breast comes out perfectly, pink in the middle and absolutely not overcooked. I really like that thing!

The fat side was seared in the pan and glazed with a mix of sherry and honey. The sauce was a reduction of red wine, balsamic vinegar, garic and honey. This was serious work, but it was absolutely worth the effort.


New Load of Cured Meat

I made a new batch of meat for curing and smoking. This time I will make two sorts: My standard cured pork (right side) like I already did several times. They’re about 700g each, so I’m planning to smoke one of them after curing and dry the other one.

The other type is “Bresaola” – cured and dried beef. It’s been cured with red wine for 24 hours and is now being cured with salt, sugar and herbs in the fridge. After that It’s going to be dried.


Smoked Sea Salt

Yesterday I made smoked sea salt. I saw a dude on the interwebz using some on a flank steak these days and it looked delicious. So I wanted to try it too.

 


Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage

Made these little creeps yesterday for dinner. They’re absolutely easy to make but are very flavorful and yummy.

Ingredients:

Gnocchi for two (about 200g each)
8-10 leaves of sage, coarsely cut
125 g butter
1 small shallot, finely diced
1 clove garlic, finely diced
Salt and pepper
Grated parmesan cheese


Homemade Garlic Paste

I like garlic and besides the fresh cloves, I use a lot of store bought garlic paste for cooking when I’m in a hurry. So why not make some myself, have it fresh and have a little fun? I normally use this brand, it’s tasty, almost non-chemical and I consider it somewhat “original” since my asia store clerk strongly recommended it to me.


Chinese Steamed Rice Noodle Rolls (Cheung Fun)

Now these are a little more complicated… I had stuff like them in a vietnamese restaurant and I was now googling around for some time to find something similar that I’d dare myself. So finally, since I’m neither asian nor a professional, I’ve thrown this together from here, here and here. What can I say? They turned out a bit ugly but indeed really delicious 🙂


Beans with Bacon

As a kid I loved the Bud Spencer & Terence Hill movies! Great stories, even greater comments and… cool food. Just remember them grubbing a full pan of beans and bacon fresh from the campfire and niftily stolen from some starving-ass villains (and occasionally sharing it with their horses). Here’s my (very simple) version – a tradition for the last 20 years:


Garlic Butter Smashed Potatoes

They’re garlicky, buttery, crispy and simply yummy. If you gave me a bathtub full of them, I’d want to drown in it. Had them last night again and here’s how:

Ingredients:

500g small, round potatoes 
2-3 tbsp. butter 
2-3 tbsp. olive oil 
2-3 big cloves of garlic, minced
Dried rosemary to taste  
Salt & pepper to taste


Bangers & Mash

I made “Bangers and Mash” today, which is sausages and mashed potatoes with onion gravy. Veeery yummy! Here’s how:



Honey-Soy glazed Salmon

Super-easy and fast. Oh, I forgot: also yummy!

Ingredients:

Salmon for 2 (~350g) 

Marinade: 
4 cloves garlic, minced 
2 tsp. ginger, minced 
½ tsp. red pepper 
1 tbsp. olive oil 
1/3 cup soy sauce 
1/3 cup honey
