Chapatti, or Versatile Indian Flatbreads

Before embarking on this flatbread adventure I had never tasted chapatti or even seen them in “real” life. I had read about them, seen on blogs and in cookery books, but had no idea (and still don’t have!) what texture and taste I should obtain. These chapatti are soft, taste slightly nutty and are absolutely delicious, in spite of their…Continue Reading “Chapatti, or Versatile Indian Flatbreads”

Light Yogurt Mousse with Passion Fruit

Spring has been particularly cold this year and strawberries (I mean the edible ones) are late, so I keep on buying other fruits. A week ago I was thrilled to find exceptionally aromatic and sweet organic passion fruits and then wondered what dessert I could include them in… Finally, I thought the cleaner the flavours, the better. I’m glad I steered…Continue Reading “Light Yogurt Mousse with Passion Fruit”

ANZAC Biscuits with Dried Blueberries

First of all, I I would like to apologise my dear visitors and blogging friends for such a long absence due to wonderful holidays I have spent once more in Japan. As always, the stay in Tokyo was highly inspiring, filled with unforgettable culinary moments and I hope I’ll be able to share with you some of my…Continue Reading “ANZAC Biscuits with Dried Blueberries”

Light Almond Cream with Plums

If your only idea of a perfect sweet treat is a thick slice of a rich, frosted cake, then you might not appreciate this post. If, however, like me, you avoid (or at least you try…) doubling the meal’s calorie intake in its last course or/and if you are thrilled at the idea of guiltless, but luscious refreshing desserts, this almond cream is…Continue Reading “Light Almond Cream with Plums”

Greek Yogurt Mousse (Light Unbaked Cheesecake) with Canned Peaches

Whoever invented canned peaches, was a genius. Unlike pineapple or litchi, I never see them as  poorer – and sickly sweet – cousins of fresh ones, but almost like different fruits, which, apart from being delicious, are easy to stock and to use. They add a beautiful sunny touch to all the cold season desserts…Continue Reading “Greek Yogurt Mousse (Light Unbaked Cheesecake) with Canned Peaches”

Yogurt Strawberry Mousse with Chocolate Ganache

How I wish the strawberry season stretched to the whole year… Even though I’m happy to see cherries, apricots or peaches appear on my market, I am unable to ignore strawberries, which now, in their later varieties, have a much more complex and interesting taste. Last weekend I ended up once more making my staple…Continue Reading “Yogurt Strawberry Mousse with Chocolate Ganache”

Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Sour Cherries

I have a big passion for black sour cherries. I don’t talk about the mouth-puckering, early light red cherries with transparent flesh. I mean the dark red fruits, with a deep serious elegant taste, impossible to confound with any other variety: the ones used in the famous schwarzwälder kirschtorte, kirsch and other products, where sweet…Continue Reading “Light Unbaked Cheesecake/Greek Yogurt Mousse with Sour Cherries”

Coconut and Strawberry Wobbly Cream with Agar

I am fond of both coconut and strawberries, yet their presence in the same dessert has never crossed my mind. Either I have been inattentive in past years or coconut and strawberry flavoured sweets are in fashion particularly this season. Inspired by so many tempting recipes I saw on favourite blogs, I couldn’t resist testing this…Continue Reading “Coconut and Strawberry Wobbly Cream with Agar”

Yogurt Strawberry Mousse with Strawberry Coulis

If my blogging rules consisted of posting every single dish I have, you would see this mousse at least every other day during the whole strawberry season (regardless the weather). In fact, this is one of the rare sweet treats I never get bored with. First of all, I never get tired of strawberries and…Continue Reading “Yogurt Strawberry Mousse with Strawberry Coulis”
