Food, Wanderlust

Out & about

Little reminder, life ain`t bad when you see this on the way to buy sustainable sourced eco Nesquick.

Casa Vincent is one of Gaudí`s earliest works. Currently under reconstruction to be opened for public for the first time as a museum this fall.


My shopping is from Veritas, a store hated by some for riding on the wave of Barcelona`s gentrification and loved by others, you know the story. Should I have walked couple of meters down the road to the co – op? Yes! Am I happy my juice has no sugar and my cereals have no chemicals? Yes!

Grandma`s cooking

My granny doesn’t believe in a meal without meat and meat less, let alone animal free lunch is just outrageous idea! C` mon! You gotta eat something!

But grandma ….

“Theres only one egg in the cake, one egg is not going to kill you!”

But grandma …

So we looked deep into our “heritage cuisine” and  in the end we agreed on “Halušky” a traditional Slovakian “mountain” meal. Made of finely diced potatoes mixed with flour and boiled, served with fermented cabbage.

The original version is not animal free, granny just had to deal with it! But I came for more and that made her happy!



Raw Frgál*

* a type of pie made in Wallachia, a region of the Czech Rep. Traditionally made with yeast dough and plum jam or/and poppy seeds. This stud is raw poppy seed made by Zivi Bar in Olomouc.




It`s asparagus season


Locally grown white asparagus & sorghum with Tahini Sauce 

Did you know an acre of sorghum uses a third-less water than an acre of corn? It is drought-tolerant, low-water-usage, wonder grain!


Nut Roast!

It is almost Sunday so treat yourself!


Receipt here  green salad on a side and cauliflower rice (cooked cauliflower in a water with curcuma, salt, cayenne pepper) and of course Tahini Sauce on everything!

Absolutely delightful!


Cacao & raspberries dreams

cacao rasbery

I started of with this recipe  however on the way modified it a bit. I used Spelt flour, sunflower oil, and added raspberry jam (grandma`s home-made) and cacao. No egg! I used chia and flax seeds mix. Improvise!

Super quick only 10 min in the owen!



Tasting my memories

Today I took a stroll through memory and made a traditional Czech dish – apple millet pie. Evidence of my own past, this dish was with me throughout my childhood and adulthood, popping up on my plate every now and than. Served by school, grandma at my friends parents houses, everywhere …


For reference look at the movie Carnage 


Today I followed this recipe  slightly modified. I added poppy seeds, sunflower seeds and walnuts, skipped the spices, only used cinnamon and didn’t use milk as I didn’t have any around.
