Chicken Pancit

Hello everyone from a snowy Munich! Last night, we cooked chicken pancit.

Ingredients are simple – chicken breast, garlic, ginger, spring onions, carrots, celery, green beans, red pepper. Prepare ingredients, cut chicken in small pieces and the vegetables, too. Crush garlic and ginger in a mortar and pestle. Fry the chicken with a little rapeseed oil, take them out once brown. Fry the ginger and garlic, add the vegetables. Take them out of the pan. Fry the soaked noodles or pancit, add the chicken and vegetables.

It was delicious!

Santorini

look1look2look3look4look5look6look7 look9

Santorini is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic eruption that destroyed the earliest settlements on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera. A giant central, rectangular lagoon, which measures about 12 by 7 km (7.5 by 4.3 mi), is surrounded by 300 m (980 ft) high, steep cliffs on three sides. The main island slopes downward to the Aegean Sea. (From Wikipedia)

sing its praise
great Santorini
wild beauty
gold sunset
rising proudly from the sea
strong and majestic

one summer
a holiday there
it was fun
unsurpassed
walking up and down the cliffs
to the Aegean

Meatballs carbonara, fried rice, scallops with brocolli, etc.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re all fine. Sharing with you some of the food we’ve been cooking this week. First one – meatballs carbonara. Ingredients: minced meat, tagliatelle, parsley, eggs, parmesan cheese. Boil the tagliatelle. Form meat balls out of the meat, add some bread and roll them in ground pepper. Mix the eggs, parmesan cheese and parsley. When the tagliatelle is al dente, take them out and add them to the fried meat balls. Add the rest of the ingredients. Serve with green salad and a nice bottle of white wine.

Roast Chicken Tikka

Happy Sunday everyone! We saw this purple cauliflower in the market so we thought of cooking it with the chicken.

DSC00980

Following Jamie Oliver’s easy cooking with 5 ingredients, we prepared the 5 vital ingredients: for the two of us, a small piece of chicken, half of cauliflower, 4 pieces of potatoes, fresh coriander and tikka masala paste. First, wash and quarter the potatoes, don’t peel. Cut the flowers of the cauliflower into small size, stalks and all.

DSC00981

Cover the chicken with 2 to 4 spoons of tikka paste (or other indian paste, like tandoori, korma, vindaloo). Use hands (a bit messy, but fun!)

DSC00982

Put the rest of the paste to the vegetables. Season the potatoes and cauliflower with salt and pepper, olive oil and wine vinegar. Cut the stems of the coriander and add them. Put the coriander leaves in a bowl of cold water, to be sprinkled later.

DSC00983

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and put the chicken and the vegetables.

DSC00988

Roast for an hour up to 1 hour and 20 minutes. Let the fat of the chicken drip to the vegetables.

Voila! Our roast chicken tikka 🙂

Being pampered in Das Kranzbach

Hello everyone! We’re here in Das Kranzbach and we loved being pampered. It’s a four star hotel and a wellness refuge. The place is amazing!

There are four outdoor pools and one indoor pool, all heated and complete with jacuzzi. There are also saunas and other wellness facilities.

We went for a walk today, from Kranzbach to Am Berg and it took us two and a half hours going up and down. Am Berg is 1200m high.

We have a full board accomodation and the food from breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner was wonderful!
