I love Japanese food, which is a big influence in the Peruvian contemporary kitchen. Peruvian and Japanese food are a match made in heaven, the result is what we call Nikkei food. I am making a note to share a Nikkei recipe with you soon!
It is such an inspiration to find traditional recipes explained so well and with so much love as Nami Chen does in her blog Just One Cookbook. Nami replaces rice with quinoa in some traditional recipes with great success, but this time I decided to share her recipe of Nama Chocolate since this is a wonderful japanese treat that not many people I know know about. It is absolutely delicious and delicate. This is the japanese version of a truffle, I tried it in Tokyo for the first time some years ago and still remember how I succumbed to the flavour of the tiny square I tried.
Thanks to Nami, I can now dare to prepare it at home with my favorite peruvian dark chocolate! Hope you enjoy it!
Ingredients: Dark chocolate (70% cacao), fresh cream, cocoa powder, liqueur
Wow, it has been a while since my last post, 20013 is going by so quickly, hope you all are having a great start of the year! Today I wanted to share with you a Quinoa recipe which is amazing in so many ways… It is delicious, visual, both gluten and dairy free but above all it is shared in a great post from Helene Dujardin in her award winning blog Tartelette. Helene shares in a very special post her feelings about the struggle of being allergic. I have dear friends and family members who suffer from allergies to various things and in different levels. I myself discovered I have turned allergic to fresh apples last summer. Helene’s testimony is honest, moving and puts into words the feelings both allergic people and their family and friends experience on a daily basis. Great food for thought indeed.
