Edible Domino!!! – Merry Christmas

…yes…. my culinary greetings reached my swap partner and now I can finally release what I packed for her! A simple cookie turning into an edible board game πŸ˜‰ I used a butter cookie recipe, in German ‘Heidesand’, added grated tonka bean and separated part of the dough to add cocoa powder. You could also do it with any other coloring agent, or matcha tea powder. Have fun in the kitchen!

Encontro dos Sabores turns 2!! Thank you for making this happen!!!

YES! Believe or not, Encontro dos Sabores celebrates it’s second birthday.

I don’t even wanna try to describe my joy about it in words, I guess I am much better showing it in FOOD πŸ™‚

edible flowers

Let’s celebrate with FLOWERS. Last year’s Flower-Power dinner attracted huge interest and I had to decline a few people, so those who wanted to join but couldn’t grab a seat (hint, hint) and all the others of course,Β  give it try and sign up for August 12th’s FLOWER-POWER 2014. The shopping list for the menu (currently) looks like this:

flour, butter, sunflower

burrata, dandelion

watermelon, radish, geranium

beef, chili, cilantro, orchid

ricotta, butter, cream, sugar, rose

 

Let me know in the next 3 days if you would like to join and don’t forget to mention any allergies or intolerance, so I can make sure you only eat what is good for you. As usual, the evening starts around 6.30 pm. Price: CHF 75 with & 65 without alcohol. Vegetarians can easily be catered for, but for planning please let me know when signing up if you wish a vegetarian option.

I look very much forward to seeing you (again)!

… within the meaning of fasting – 2 seats left!

I have come across a few people recently that adhere to the period of fasting and whilst we are for a while already actively cutting down our meat consume, it brought up the idea of a dinner round within the meaning.

Come and enjoy a regional-seasonal-vegetarian dinner that is nothing inferior to any other! Discover or re-discover spring treasures, vegetables that are only available within a very short time frame and many more without having to rigorously search the menu for sin-free food …

Next @ EdS: Another yummy Autumn!

While days are markedly shorter and we already got a little preview of winter-like temperatures, there is also a pretty side to this time of the year. Its harvest season and the markets spill over with fruits, vegetables and flowers. Its the time to think about more savoury dishes to warm us up from inside πŸ™‚

The next dinner round @ EdS will treat you with lots of yummy saisonal delicacies! I am busy test-cooking, creating recipes and a possible menu … Time is rather scarce this time and I won’t be able to reveal the full menu in advance, as I will be travelling for most of October. It will be a meaty dinner, with a vegie option available. Pumpkins, root vegetables, potatoes, pears, plums, these and many more will find their way on to the plates. If you are curious enough, then RSVP straight away to join the table on October 31st. 5 seats are available – 3 are already reserved! The evening starts at 6.30 pm.

Price: CHF 75 with & 65 without alcohol

Please let me know if you are allergic to anything, I want to make sure you only eat what is good for you. And if you liked you last stay @ Encontro dos Sabores and would like to share it with a friend, please do so!

Confirmations will be sent as soon as the table is fully booked!

I look forward to hearing from you,

Nancy
