Foie gras, or you hate it or you adore it. In my case, I do like to eat foie gras from time to time. The combination with ginger-bread and a bit of jam is just delicious! I’ve choosen two different types of jam: the first one is a jam with figs and Porto, the second one is an orange jam with Grand Marnier.
You can serve the blinis hot or cold, I prefer them cold. Basic coat is Philadelphia cheese – you have them in different flavours. I used the Philadelphia with garlic and green herbs. Top coat are shrimps: « scampis » or « crevettes grises » – you can also go for « crevettes roses » which are cheaper, but I find them less tasteful. A touch of colour with some fresh parsley or some red chilli flakes. Easy, quick and so good!
US National Spaghetti Day, this national day does not exist in Belgium. But as a huge pastalover, it’s my pleasure to prepare you my favourite pastadish today: spaghetti ham & cheese. Cook the spaghetti by following the instructions on the package. Melt some butter in a separate pan, add the ham and some cream. Let it simmer till the sauce is thickened. Mix the spaghetti with the sauce and as a final touch add some parmezan cheese. The perfect dinner during the week.
Typical lunch: a fresh salad – with cherry tomatoes, red onion and chives – and a shrimp croquette. As dressing for the salad I’ve mixed some salad oil with champagne vinegar. Delightful!
