At the November 14`th Cooking Party we will prepare for the festive season by creating a three course menu well worth inviting your friends and family over on.

A quick peak at the Menu:
* Crème Ninon with Champagne,
Baked Salmon with herbs and caramelized lemons,
* Surprise Bonfire Dessert

Paired with the right wines and the right people (meaning you!) this should be quite a treat.

The evening costs 85 chf (including location, food, drinks, goodie bag and my preparations).
If you`re interested in joining please and let the feast begin!


November Cooking Party

Stop by for a taste and a look!


Come join me at Favouritz, Kaufmannweg 14, Lucerne. Wednesday Aug. 28`th at 14:00.


This fall I`ll be hosting three Cooking Parties and I`m inviting you to come.


September 19′th – Apples
When I think of fall I think of apples. Red, green and yellow in their colors, matching the leaves soon to fall of the trees. So what can we create with this fruit besides apple pie? And how do we add it to a warm meal?
I have a few ideas: Apple Sangria, Apple+Parsnip Soup, Chicken+Bacon+Apple Rolls and for dessert something typical Norwegian with the funny name “Veiled peasant girls”.

October 17`th – Soul Warming Soups
I love soup and therefor I`m so much looking forward to this soup party.
We`ll look to Italy and France to make three ultimate classic soups where the right technique and your love for food will give soul to the dishes.

November 14`th – Flu-Fighting Foods
Don’t underestimate the power of food to help keep you healthy.
At this party we`ll use garlic, onions, spices, berries, mushrooms, salmon and dark chocolate among other ingredients. Here`s to a flu-free winter – Cheers!

These antioxidant-packed, low-calorie fruits have a number of possible health benefits, including speeding up exercise recovery, promoting sleep and protecting the heart.
Eat them raw or juice them.

96 percent water, rich in vitamins A, C and K, as well as magnesium and potassium, all for very few calories.
Use them in salads, on sandwiches and pureed with avocado and yogurt.

One medium fruit can contain nearly 70 percent of your daily recommended intake of A and three times your C. It’s also a good sourse of fiber and potassium, and contains some of the antioxidants found in other orange and yellow produce, like sweet potatoes, that offer skin and immunity benefits.
Dice some into your next fruit salad with pineapple or with mango, avocado and a little onion as a homemade salsa.

Rich in vitamins A, C and K, plus fiber. The dark hue of plums signals cardiovascular benefits, as well as perks for the brain and the heart.
A perfect grab-and-go fruit. Or try making a chutney out of plums (or cherries, for that matter) to top chicken or fresh fish.

This week in Migros:
Emilia Romagna Prosciutto crudo 4.75 (6.80)
I love this prosciutto by it self, with a slice of melon or wrapped around mango.
