The basil in the garden seems to enjoy very much the rainy weather and it's growing gigantic, so I went to cut some and was thinking about preparing a simple dish of pasta with basil and tomato. But then it turned out in a new ravioli recipe! I peeled a large tomato (you'll actually need 2... Continue Reading →
Funny because I don't often cook soba on week days, but on week end I realized we eat some quite often! I love to cook them in a simple manner, neither in soup nor cold with tsuyu, but rather just boiled with a few drops of soya sauce, accompanied with some vegetables and often meat...

A pure bowl of yumminess! With quinoa simply boiled, baby leaf salad, diced avocado and dried salted konbu (shio konbu - 塩昆布), and the juice of a local lime for a late Friday evening dinner in the country.

An other of my simple vegan dinner, this time 100% Japanese. With a konbu dashi miso soup with tofu and myoga and a bowl of rice topped with sauteed veggies: shishito, carrots, burdock and potato. No seasonning, just the pure delicious taste of each ingredient.
The other day we went to Aoyama to pick up our new car and we stopped for lunch on our way in a little passage in Aoyama dori with food trucks and cafe barracks celebrating the chia seed week. Don't ask me what it is, I didn't really get the point, none of of the... Continue Reading →
No it's not my new car but my new amazing rice cooker. I have had rice cookers for a long time. My first one was offered by Gentiane when I moved to Paris. It was a nice one, classic Chinese style (I mean a round one with a top like a lid). I used it all... Continue Reading →
Back to our routine, lot of work and week end in the country. Saturday morning tennis and one-bowl lunch. Today the market was really good, edamame, green beans, lots of fruits...

At first when I started to bake my own bread I didn't know much about it and I didn't know how to chose the ingredients. As in any preparation the quality of the ingredient is crucial and it is not easy to understand what is a good flour and what is not, and also there... Continue Reading →
After being away from home for more than 10 days I'm really happy to be back to my kitchen. After eating out a lot (even though recently it's been easier to find simple food in restaurants in France) I really need to get back to my basic diet. As soon as we were done with... Continue Reading →

Of course the main base is with seeds (as always), here it's a mix of lentils, quinoa and brown rice, then I add tomato, avocado, beetroot, balsamic vinegar, goji berries, a few of sunflower seeds and on the top: smoked mackerel. Bon appetite.

So let me introduce an other recipe of delicious veggies, like I already miss them!Grilled veggies are the best! Potato, sweet potato, kabocha and broccoli. I just added a... Continue Reading →

I use goji berries, sunflower seeds, pine seeds.... Continue Reading →
I was about to buy momendofu (firm tofu) for this one plate dish when a pack of smoked tofu attracted my sight and I ended up with it. All the way back home I was wondering when I had smoked tofu last and how it was, but I couldn't really reacall. Probably in a vegan... Continue Reading →
