Busy week

Tomato Festival ’13 – it’s history already. Unbelievable how time is flying by. The dinner was a success and my dear guests were very surprised what could be created out of tomatoes. You will be able to check out the final menu soon, together with pictures of course!

But as always, after the dinner is before the dinner and my brain is food-working again and designing the next menu. We will celebrate another yummy Autumn- which caught us this week already, much faster than we all had expected. So stay tuned and watch out for the next dinner invitation, coming soon. October 31st is the day you should mark in your agenda.

cheers, Nancy

Ps: shopping for the tomato festival, mmmhhh


Tomato Festival ’13


Tomatoes turned into one of my favorite vegies, but only when they are really tasty. And this is now! While we try to enjoy the end of summer, tomatoes ripen to their very best. The markets spill over with beautiful varities, we unfortunately don’t find that easy in the supermarket staple.

Join us on September 17th for another yummy tomato festival with completely new recipes! A paradise for vegie- (lover)s. Here’s the inspiration for the menu, additions likely, last minute adjustments possible…

Yellow Tomato Bloody Mary (virgin or classic)

Tomato: white, red and green

Tomato Cumin Tarte

Tomato Creme Bruleè

Sweet Tomato Cake with Basil Icecream


If you don’t like anchovis or olives, please let me know – also if you have any allergies or intolerance. I will make sure you only eat what is good for you!

RSVPs are now open, first come, first serve. If you would like to recommend Encontro dos Sabores to a friend, please do so.

I look forward to welcoming you!

FlowerPower – Next @ EdS!!

It’s summer, finally!, and I am all the time surrounded by flowers and sweet smelling air which gives me lots of inspiration for the next supper.
Hiking in the mountains last weekend drove me almost mad – while I appreciated the pure beauty of rich flower fields, my food brain didn’t stop a second and looked at each flower with a hidden agenda…
I would have loved to just pick them all and run home for cooking 😉


If you share curiosity for new flavours and want to know what flowers can mean as parts or driving force of a dinner, book August 20 in your agenda straightaway!
Stay tuned for the full invitation to be sent soon with details on the menu composition.
RSVPs are possible from now onwards!!

I’ll be back soon,
cheers Nancy
