Leeks, spinach and beets pie (vegan)

I grew up eating vegetarian pies usually made with puff pastry and filled with spinach and other delights. I wanted to stick to my favorite filling, which is spinach and leeks and I used tofu to make it creamy and a trick to obtain the perfect leek pattern. This recipe is quite easy and quick […]

Chocolate, almond and caramel tartlets (vegan)

I love making vegan caramel, I usually love further flavouring it with other elements (not just salt, but also whiskey, pepper or whatever makes you happy). For these tartlets I made a simple caramel sauce because the cacao pastry and the mousse were so rich I didn’t want to make it overwhelming. It was so […]

Soft apple cake (vegan)

Apples are just the best, right? Apples are great all year round (at least here), they are good juiced, raw, peel on, peel off, in jams, oven baked, simmered … I could go on forever. I was feeling nostalgic the other day, I haven’t seen my parents in almost a year and I was missing […]

“Twin peaks” tribute cherry tart (vegan)

Twin Peaks had such a huge impact on my life – I had already seen The elephant man, but it was Twin Peaks that hooked me into David Lynch’s universe, which I have never left afterwards. It is a brilliant show, I consider it a very long film broken down in pieces, especially The return. […]

Sichuan pepper, rhubarb and strawberry tartlet rings

Hello! I decided to try something different and I ended up doing these ring (?) tartlets (not sure how to call these). Despite my love for tarts and derivates, sometimes you just want to change things up and challenge yourself. These were not easy to make 😰 probably because as usual my most sophisticated kitchen […]
