Cori’s French Bouillabaisse

Cori's French Bouillabaisse

I am right now in a phase of discovering and trying out delicious French recipes, which somehow, for various reasons, I left them aside in my culinary adventures. Bouillabaisse, maybe you know it or not, is a fish stew made by fishermen in Marseilles originally prepared from bony fish they couldn’t sell to the restaurants or at the market. A vegetable mix such as fennel bulb, leek, tomatoes, potatoes and…

And I really hope that some of you missed my recipes 🙂 This is the time of the year when I miss the most my hometown in…

Salata mediteraneana cu ton si naut

Scotocind prin rafturile supermarketului, mi-au cazut in mana niste conserve cu ton si, ce-i drept, nu mai mancasem de mult o salata misto de ton. Chef nu aveam de clasica combinatie, ton, porumb, ceapa si salata verde, asa ca a trebuit sa scotocesc in continuare si alte ingrediente pentru a-mi satisface pofta. Salata mediteraneana cu ton si naut a reusit sa-mi schimbe total ideile despre ce poti face cu o…

Cuscus cu sos de rosii si chimion si hamsie fripta

cuscus cu sos de rosii si chimion si hamsie fripta

Pentru mine hamsie = pestele mic pe care-l mananci vara, pe carton, in balciul din Mamaia. Este imaginea copilariei mele si, oricat de multe retete as incerca avand hamsia ingredientul vedeta, imaginea asta n-as avea cum s-o uit vreodata. Asta mica, hamsia, o fi ea mai putin simandicoasa cand vine vorda de mancaruri cu peste, dar daca o frigi bine pe gratar, poti pune de-un snack, sau chiar de-o saramura dobrogeana de mananci…

Salau la gratar cu salata de cartofi

salata de cartofi cu salau la gratar

Recunosc ca fac parte din categoria care se bucura cand e de stat prin bucatarie, ador sa migalesc farfurii cu mancare sau vreun preparat mai simandicos. Dar mai exista si momente in care de s-ar gati mancarea singura si repede, ar fi ideal. Ei bine, azi a fost un moment din categoria “mi-e foame, vreau ACUM sa mananc”, asa ca n-am avut de ales, am luat repede la curatat cativa cartofi si…

Dorada la tigaie in sos provensal

Dorada si Provence, aveau de la bun inceput toate semnele ca vor face “tigaie” buna impreuna. De altfel, Provence este si in topul listei de calatorii, iar asta  nu doar pentru campurile de lavanda si peisajele rupte din basme, ci mai ales pentru bucataria mediteraneana cu arome puternice si atat de expresive. Ramai cu mine sa-ti mai povestesc despre deliciosul sos provensal, care pana acum mi se pare cam de neegalat cand vine vorba despre cum sa mai…

Chili Garlic and Parsley Horse Mackerel

stavrid la cuptor cu sos picant de patrunjel si usturoi

I’d eat these lil’ guys, along with the fresh anchovies, without stopping, in fact this is what I actually did with the full baking tray, and you can’t blame me. In my hometown, Constanta, if you didn’t eat at least once every summer, lots of fried, grilled fish, with chili garlic and parsley dressing, polenta, and so on, there may be something fishy with you..just kidding 🙂 Now is full…

Somon cu mix de legume

somon cu mix de legume

Totul sta in lucrurile simple chiar si cand e vorba de mancare, eu as zice mai ales atunci. Dar mancarea simpla nu inseamna banala, fara gust, ci mai degraba sa reusesti sa scoti in evidenta aromele prin tehnici destul de basic si cu ingredientele putine. O cina (sau un pranz) poate lejer sa intre la categoria lucruri simple daca totul e gata in 20 minute de cand ai intrat pe usa…
