After reading my so far favourite book about food history, Cuisine and Culture: A History of Food and People by Linda Civitello, I became interested in New World crops. Quinoa was one of them, but the price for even a small package was so high that I always held myself from buying it with a quote “stop buying avocado on a toast if you want to afford the house “. Last visit to Tesco brought me a surprise, 250 package of quinoa for the price that I could name “still overpriced, but I can try it”. What cook from quinoa on May in Slovakia when famous May bryndza cheese is available in all stores? I have an obvious answer: just combine these 2 products in 1 dish. The result is great 🙂
Short intro: I love to visit Oriental food shop in Vysoká street in Bratislava, as it always inspires me to try something new. Last Friday, I was looking for a tahini for humus, but I found myself paying also for oyster sauce and chickpea flour (because why not, it’s gluten free with a lot of proteins). At first I had no idea how I would use this flour, but the decision was found quickly: I decided to cook chickpea ravioli with potatoes, bryndza cheese and leek.
I read enormous amount of food related content, so it’s high time to write about food here in my blog.
My Saturday morning ritual includes visit to the Old city market in Bratislava.
