Lamb Korma

Lamb Korma

My recent short trip to India inspired me to try and cook some more Indian food. After the success of Shahi Salmon, I decided to try my hand at Lamb Korma. It is similar because it also has a creamy sauce made with yogurt and tomato. If you are new to Indian food, too, I … Continue reading

Lentil, Fennel and Skyr Salad

Lentil, Fennel and Skyr Salad

This is the type of salad that I often eat for lunch during the weekend, and I will be posting a few more of them. It is low in fat and low in carbs as well as vegetarian, so perhaps a good choice after all the decadent food you’ve had over the holidays. If you … Continue reading

Simple Shahi Salmon

Simple Shahi Salmon

I’ve just returned from a short business trip to Bombay in India. There wasn’t time for any specific food research, but I did enjoy the food immensely and even tried Indian wine for the first time (which was unexpectedly good). I posted photos of the food and wine I enjoyed in India on the Facebook … Continue reading

Sole with Yogurt Remoulade Sauce

Sole with Yogurt Remoulade Sauce

Fried fish is really good with remoulade sauce, but that mayonnaise-based sauce is not the most healthy of options. And so I decided to try making a version with yogurt at its base, and tried it with baby sole, pan-fried in clarified butter. It was delicious! Clarified butter is much easier to use than regular … Continue reading

Naan Bread

Naan Bread

Naan bread from India differs from ‘regular’ leavened bread for two reasons: it is made with yogurt and/or milk instead of water, and it is cooked quickly in a very hot oven (tandoor). If you don’t have a tandoor, you can cook naan bread on a grill (barebecue) and that makes naan bread very suitable … Continue reading

Lamb Shank with Eggplant and Yogurt

Lamb Shank with Eggplant and Yogurt

This recipe is best when cooked sous-vide, but it is also great to prepare in the oven. The two sauces are what take it over the top. Even if you don’t like lamb or you don’t cook sous-vide this post is worth reading, as the delicious yogurt sauce will also work with other dishes. It … Continue reading

Lamb Sous-Vide with Couscous and Zucchini

Lamb Sous-Vide with Couscous and Zucchini

Today’s recipe is Mediterranean-style lamb shoulder marinated and then cooked sous-vide in a yogurt marinade, and served with lamb stock-infused cous cous and grilled zucchini. The combination of all three together is delicious. I had never prepared lamb marinated with yogurt before, and after having seen Conor prepare wonderful lamb dishes with yogurt, I really thought I … Continue reading

Herring Ceviche with Cucumber Foam

Herring Ceviche with Cucumber Foam

The inspiration for serving herring marinated in lime juice with cucumber comes from an amuse bouche served by Albert when he cooked dinner for us. Brined herring is a Dutch delicacy, prepared by ripening the herrings for a couple of days in oak barrels in a brine. The pancreatic enzymes which support the ripening make this … Continue reading
