goodbye summer, hello autumn!

End-Of-Summer

days are getting shorter, nights chilly (true, days as well) … yes! we are entering autumn! welcome all!

with the downside of cold weather, autumn opens the way to heartier dishes and markets currently spill over with loads of good produce. so I decided to create a menu that lets you enjoy the sun in the food, calls some summer memories and also opens up your taste buds for the new season.

goodbye summer, hello autumn! @ Encontro dos Sabores, September 26th

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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,ย  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.

ย A vegan-vegetarian dinner – Thursday, April 10th @ Encontro dos Sabores

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 …
