Bonet

This is the vegan version of an Italian local delicacy from Piedmont. I tried this when I was doing my master in Torino and after that I made it several times. It goes really well with Amaretti cookies but this time I just oomphed the caramel sauce and sprinkled with ground almonds infused with Amaretto […]

Rhubarb, strawberry and almond tart (vegan)

’Tis the season to eat rhubarb. I love rhubarb. So much that last time I went to visit my parents in Italy I packed some rhubarb to bring there, as in Italy it’s not as easy to find and I couldn’t deprive my parents of its amazing taste.  I developed this recipe inspired by one […]

Vegan “kiwier” cake

Happy Tuesday from me and this vegan kiwier cake 🙂  I received a ton of kiwis from Oddbox so I thought: why not make a Fraisier with kiwis – a ‘Kiwier’? Well, it worked so well. I also used passion fruits and some peaches because they all go so well together and it was such […]

Rosemary, orange and chocolate mini entremets (vegan)

For this one I decided to combine flavours that I adore, with a fresh rosemary I bought at the market and couldn’t wait to sneak in some dessert 🙂 I used silikomart’s stone moulds, […]

I had been wanting to create a dessert with yuzu for a while, so I decided to start with a classic: lemon meringue pie, but with yuzu. I love how this turned out, it has such a distinctive flavour, which feels very familiar for the resemblance with lemon, but also mandarin-like. For the pastry shell […]

Hello! Happy Friday. I needed this week to come to and end, it’s been intensive and very difficult and I am so glad I will now have time to bake, walk, relax, watch movies, and do all the things I love without constantly worrying. The worry will stay there, popping out from time to time, […]

Vegan Bûche de Nöel

I didn’t get into baking seriously until a few months ago. I baked my first proper cake 6 years ago and since then I started to bake once in a while, mostly raw vegan things. Which are great but not very complicated. Then I tried baking a Yule log or buche de Noel and it […]
