November 20th – more to come soon!
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
jerusalem artichoke (topinambur) & apple soup
a last day at the beach (with clams, fish, cauliflower) Vegi/ red onion tarte
pear, walnut, cheese
pear, redwine & chocolate
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 🙂
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, 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
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)!

Both is nice, I love the Encontro’s and start to miss them but I am having a good time too…Stay tuned, there will be a date announcement soon for July- the next Encontro. And I promise it will be a no-game night, wouldn’t dare to spoil your Worldcup Fever, he?!
