Sometimes I feel I should come back to the staple food reality, even though the exotic food world is ever so tempting and exciting! The past days I have been working and testing a wild leave bhaji type, commonly cooked in Hindu houses in the rains in Goa. However it will take some time till I am ready to share it with you all since I am looking for some exciting flavor innovation in this direction, so you will have to be patient and wait some more time.
In the meanwhile, today, I introduce you to my dear friend Charles from Five Euro Food! Charles is one of the few male food bloggers out there, sharing with us tasty and gorgeous food recipes from his British and Swedish heritage and further even from his current home, France. His blog is all about preparing delicious and extravagant recipes, all under 5 Euros. Each recipe is very well explained and easy to recreate with the help of step by step pictures, and recently Charles has even started to post you tube clips with each recipe. Charles is a very kind and friendly Person, so feel free to connect with him through Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Stumbleupon or Pinterest.
I am really awful in cooking with spinach and I know it’s healthy and all, so I am very delighted about Charles’s Frittata recipe share! The recipe is easy to recreate and perfect whenever you are in a rush or when your belly is growling. But enough from my side, now I would like to pass the word to Charles!
Hi there, today I have the honor of filling in for Helene as she takes a day off! I was touched to be asked to write up a post for her – the thought of anyone thinking that your writing is sufficiently good and interesting enough to be featured on their own personal blog is always a high compliment, so I hope my offering today can inspire you a little, even if it’s a bit more “mundane” than the exotic and delicious things Helene has been posting before – various gourds, a great many berries that I’ve never even heard of… well, she had an advantage – she is living in a distant country of course, so I’m looking forward to seeing what wonderful things she can make with more familiar ingredients.
If you don’t know me, I’m a British guy living in Paris – I’ve always loved cooking, ever since the first “macaroni cheese” I made for my family when I was about 6 or 7. On my blog I try to cook food to serve two or more people for €5 or less. Sometimes I get a bit carried away and post a €50 salmon flank, but I’m being a bit more strict with myself on those posts! Today’s recipe is quick and easy and can be easily customized to suit any taste. The most important part is the whisking of the eggs. The success of a good frittata lies behind the air beaten into the eggs and volume held there!
I hope you enjoy it and thanks to Helene again for letting me be here!
