For a good start in our weekend I cooked some delicious burgers. And making burgers means always preparing everything fresh, from bun to the patty and the sauce. Add something special, I decided to make a honey mustard sauce.
The basis for it was a thick syrup made with vinegar and honey, flavoured with some celery. This was then mixed with egg and mustard and oil to make a good mayonnaise. The finishing touch was a pinch of green curry powder and some cress.
So simple and so delicious! Continue reading
I am counting the days until my broken oven will be repaired. Luckily the repair is not so expensiv,it will cost us around 90 Euro.
My phone call with the service was funny. After I explained the problem the service man explained: “I think the fuse is not burned out. It is just a little bit scorched. But it has to be repaired!” I agreed with him because that’s why I called him! 😉
And as long as I can not bake I focus in other things. Cleaning the kitchen got boring after some time so I did a photo shooting with some hot peppers I bought.
Homemade Mayonnaise is very delicious and very simple to prepare. But I am always sad when I have to throw away the leftovers. But I do not dare to keep them, my fear of Salmonella is stronger then the pangs of conscience about wasting food.
I was thrilled when I read on Fool for Food about a egg free Mayonnaise. Claudia posted a recipe that used milk instead of egg. The only bad thing was that the recipe asked for an immersion blender. I do not own one, so I start thinking. And then I thought, why not use my beloved food processor. With its whisking attachment it whips perfectly all kinds of creams. I use it for normal mayonnaise as well, so I started a first attempt.
