The taste of love…

Chefs (like me ), authors, musicians, actors, poets, so many of us have very strong feelings about food. Why is food so emotional? Scents of food stir up childhood memories, cooking for and feeding someone is one of the sweetest gestures in the world, even watching someone eat can be a delight. Food and love are undeniably connected.

Androxa’s Homemade Pasta…

For two to four people depending on what you serve with it and how big eaters you have.

2 eggs and 220 grams of flour , 1 teaspoon salt, 2 teaspoons turmeric , 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 soupspoon olive oil

Mixing the dough
Mix the flour with all the dry ingredients.
Mix the eggs with the oil.
Pour the flour on the table or in mixing bowl and make a hole in the middle of the flour. Put all eggs in here and start to mix the flour from the middle till you have a crumbly dough , keep kneading till the dough is nice and smooth about 5-10 minutes .If the dough is too sticky add a little flour. the recipe is a guideline as the quality and hardness of the flower and room temperature and size of eggs can be different every time. make pasta a few times and you will have fresh pasta on your plate in 30 -45 minutes. 🙂 ok when the dough is nice and smooth and not sticky put it in a sandwich bag or cling film and leave for 30 minutes or till next day.
To use a pasta machine there are many recipes/sites on the internet so have a google around. you can do it by hand but is time consuming and it gets on my nerves, I got a pasta machine here and make fresh pasta maybe 2-3 times a week .
In this one I used turmeric ..thats more for the color then taste , I almost always use garlic powder in the pasta .it just gives such a beautiful taste and scent. I also make many variations , with roasted and ground sesame seeds, sweet paprika , poppy seeds, curry powder , fresh finely chopped herbs and another one for dessert….cocoa and powdered sugar….

Cooking the fresh pasta only takes about 2-3 minutes depending on the thickness  of the pasta and quality of the  flour.


Well hope you try it out sometime 🙂

Chocolate and you…

Le Chocolat de Paris

I have two true loves,
You and fine chocolate!
Rarely enjoying milk chocolate-
(Composed of chocolate and lightly caramelized sweet milk)
I must refrain from calling myself
a true chocoholic….
Yet, I have no restraint
When I find myself in the presence
Of a Paris Chocolaterie.

French chocolate is seductive,
reverent, oh, so heavenly!
Chocolate lingers on my enamored tongue,
glistening, teasing my senses, while intoxicating my mind!
Silky smooth, delicious, handcrafted tidbits of bliss-
perfectly placed in gold foil boxes.
Glistening ganache, cocoa-dusted truffles
hinted with ginger and Malabar cardamon,
artisan praline clusters, cloudy-dipped meringues
dark chocolate, white chocolate, milk chocolate-
Oh my, chocolate!

My Parisian passion for chocolate
shines in contrast to
my wholesome background
lacking true chocolate delight.
Reared on divinity fudge and frosted chocolate cupcakes,
my “can’t resist” attitude binged only in private.
I was advised to keep my dark chocolate secret…
silent.

Although I do love chocolate,
do not be jealous,
for you
my true love
have the finesse of the chocolate of Paris,
tempting me with your irrestible charm.
Your sweetness lingers
long after we kiss-
melting my heart,
like chocolate drops
in the Paris sun.

No traditions for me….

I am not religous and dont like to stick too much to traditions….so f**k the usual colored eggs this year and here is a recipe that I got taught when I was training as a chinese chef…

JASMINE TEA EGGS :

Ingredients :

* 6 eggs
* 120 ml. dark soy sauce
* 6 dl.  water
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 4 pieces star anise
* 1 cinnamon stick
* 4 teaspoons jasmine tea leaves (traditionally oolong  tea leaves are used, but I prefer the fragrance of jasmine-scented green tea and there are so many variations)

Instructions :

1. Hard-boil eggs in water. Allow to cool.
2. Combine all the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil.
3. Once eggs are cool enough to handle, gently but firmly crack the shells until you have many little cracks all over the shell. Do not remove shell.
4. Place cracked, hard-boiled eggs into the liquid and simmer at low heat for half an hour.
5. Turn off heat and allow eggs to cool down , keep the eggs in the liquid overnight in the refrigerator. The longer they steep the darker the color and the stronger the flavor.
6. When ready to eat, remove eggs from the braising liquid and carefully remove eggshells.

How do you taste……?

I wonder if vampires prefer different blood types..?
Blood types have different carbohydrates and amino groups on the cells, so a blood connoisseur could maybe tell them apart.For example, type B has more galactose than the other types. Galactose is a kind of sugar, so perhaps B is sweeter to a vampire.

Sweet and Wild

That first kiss shook me up,
It rattled my cage with a tender touch,
Sweet and wild Girl I could not get enough,
The grass was cool we lost our minds,
Sharing secrets and a bottle of wine,
Lazy night and a Cotton dress giving in to a warm caress,
Sweet and wild Girl I could not get enough,
Sweet and wild the tatse of your love,
The taste of your love gentle on my mind,
Taste of your love,
Sweet and wild as berries from a summer vine,
I know the stars saw the sparks,
Hopes and dreams tangled in the dark,
Sweet and wild the taste of you love,
Taste of your love gentle on my mind,
The taste of your love,
Sweet and wild as berries from a summer vine,
Every breath fanned the flame,
Your warm body drove me insane,
I know it’s been years and miles,
I see that fire flicker in your smile,
Sweet and wild Girl I still can’t get enough,
Sweet and wild Boy I still can’t get enough,
Sweet and wild yeah it’s the taste of your love.

The Ultimate Taste…

You are like tasting something sweet for the first time.. “
