|One of the real miracles in cooking (baking). Leavened dough pastries.|
I would seriously eat one of those large platefuls in one go.
Cottage cheese, chocolate, poppy seed.
|One of the rare occasions I would eat smoked beef tongue is in my mom's "vegetarian" vegetable soup.|
["You don't have to eat it, it's there just for the taste"]
|The meatballs, not configured yet.|
|Still not the ideal configuration. |
The cold tomato sauce is there, but the potatoes should be mashed.
|Here you go. Now the things are the way they are supposed to be.|
|For a good measure, one more pic of those little miracles.|
|These are different. Unleavened. Bratislavské rožky.|
Excellent as well, but the other ones are just the thing.
|Another of my mother's vegetarian meals.|
Cauliflower au gratin, with bacon.
["It would have no taste without it"]
Well, she is sort of right.
|Slimy pickled mushrooms. You have no idea.|
|The orgies continue. Csirke paprikas with a twist.|
|Individual (first of a few) portion of the above, with a sweet cucumber - dill salad|
|Completely different cooking. Italian. They know. Oh, they do know.|
And as Chauncey Gardener said eloquently:
"I like to watch"
|Watching again, this will be osso bucco|
|Told you. And risotto. Still watching.|
|Finished. Osso Bucco milanese with saffron/porcetta risotto and peas with pancetta|
|I still like to watch, even the cruel & unusual treatment of a lobster.|
|Finished lobster, immersed in a little butter|
|Mussels in a heavenly sauce (garlic, pine nuts, other good stuff)|
|Figs & porchetta|
|One would think - just a simple tomato salad. And it is. But oh...|
|Steak, sautéed mushrooms & asparagus|
|Prosciutto e melone. How classic can you go?|
|Ahhhh. Spaghetti with clams. Indeed.|
|Arugula, Anjou Pear, Ricotta and Pancetta salad|
|Crostini with blue cheese, figs and porchetta & veal meatballs in the background.|
OK, at certain occasions I do eat other meatballs as well.
|Mushroom tart (porcini & cremini), arugula salad with pomegranate seeds|
|Poached salmon and roasted vegetables|
|Rigatoni al ragu|
|Shrimps with crab filling|
|Shrimps on their own, also excellent.|
|some filled meat with grilled veggies, delish|
|Spaghetti con pesto|
|Real vegetarian heaven, with all my fans and Lambrusco. Not my mom's cooking either.|
|Hokkaido pumpkin, garlic, chilli & yoghurt. |
You can eat quite well even in Bratislava, if you know where to go.
|Light Mushroom soup|
Same spot in Bratislava. Not your typical Slovak cuisine. At all.
|Same spot in Bratislava and yet it looks more Italian than anything.|
Keeping the secret for myself, despite extensive begging.
|Yeanling, rosemary, thyme, garlic, pepper, milk, white wine. |
Completely against Old Testament. Exodus 23-19b, Exodus 34-26b, Deuteronomy 14-21b
You shall not boil a young goat in its mother's milk. Because it's way too delicious.
|Eggplant, pumpkin, peppers, tomatos, garlic, onion, basil & lemon.|
|And the two above together. You can eat quite well even in Bratislava, if you know where to go.|
|Pears, corn flakes, sesame seeds, orange juice, pecans and caramelized maple syrup. |
Still the secret spot in Bratislava.
|The same, with some sweetened sour cream.|
