Cod with red chicory, black quinoa and hazelnuts

Salad with black quinoa, cod and hazelnuts |

Yesterday was the official kickof of the I quit sugar challenge… But it really only starts on monday. The days leading up to monday are for preparing things, cooking some staples in the weekend and more such things. Now as luck would have it, I will be in France from Monday to Wednesday by invitation of Nespresso… And – you guessed it – there are some fine dinners coming up too. So I have decided I will start on Thursday instead of Monday. It makes no sense to start off on the wrong food and there is no way I am going to botherĀ  a 3 star Michelin chef with my sugar addictio.. ;) You’ll no doubt hear all about the trip later too!

Fennel leek soup with crispy bacon

Pressuretest: red snapper a la masterchef australia

The ‘mysterybox/pressuretest’ bag had already been delivered on friday. It was something with fish, that was as much as we knew and the recipes didn’t appear to be overly complicated. So we set to work on the Sunday and started with opening the sealed...
