Why This Site?

We want to show you that with a bit of technique and the right ingredients it’s possible to prepare tasty, great food at home.

We believe in flavours and aromas.
We don’t believe in combining this, that and everything in an attempt to be original. It’s today’s culinary madness to be over-creative.
Let’s be a bit conservative and serve tasty food with great wines, with the aim to enjoy.


We think most of the recipes are original, but then, what’s original when it comes to food? What is the recipe of an original risotto? And who can claim to own it?
Food is life, food is culture, so could we claim originality?

Our recipes and combinations are hopefully inspiring and exciting.


We don’t like using salt (except in very few specific cases). Taste should be the result of great ingredients, herbs and spices in combination with your care, love and patience when preparing your food. Not the result of salt, sugar and some nasty E numbers. Next time you visit a supermarket take some time to read the small print and be shocked!
Once we bought beef at a local supermarket. It said ‘beef’, so what do you expect? Well not beef injected with salt water. Yuk! Even our bin didn’t agree with it.


We strongly recommend using organic ingredients. Obviously a bit more expensive, but it’s much better to pay more and eat less. Better for you, better for the world.


You will notice that our recipes leave room for interpretation. This is intentionally because we don’t think a recipe should be a detailed instruction. We don’t believe in micro management. We believe in you and your ability to taste, adjust, taste, adjust and be honest.
