Breakfast surprise on Violet’s birthday


If you want a really nice meal, you should start looking at Chef John’s blog and it’s impossible not to find something really good and easy to make. For this very special day, I chose an egg Benedict recipe called Chef John’s Monte Cristo Egg Benedict.

Bean, ham and cabbage soup – Romanian style


This soup is one of those you make over and over and can’t have enough no matter how much or how many times you eat. This version is from the original recipe of a great chef from San Francisco area, Chef Gianni but I use the ingredients below with a bit more vegetables and make the soup an actual borsch.

  • 1/2 small cabbage
  • 6 baby carrots
  • Delikat – Borsch Magic, 5-15 g
  • 2-3 jalapeño peppers
  • Brown Shimeji Mushroom, 150 grams
  • 1 medium onions
  • 2 large celery stalks
  • 1/2 celery root 150 g
  • 1 large red bell pepper
  • 1 large parsnip
  • 1 Yukon Gold potatoes
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 x 375 g canned cherry tomatoes
  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 4 Shiitake mushrooms
  • 1 can x 15 oz white kidney beans
