Plaice Fillet with Lettuce and Peach

July 20th, 2018 | main dishes

Sesame oil, or more precisely roasted sesame oil, makes this simple green salad taste so special. In combination with the sweetness of the peach and the fresh herbs this salad matches perfectly to the crunchy fried plaice. A light and fast summer meal.

Piedmontese chocolate pudding with vanilla quince

A beautiful and strong coffee, anyone? Then, after a substantial meal, this specialty from the Piedmont is the right! In Piedmont, this pudding is called also Bonèt, because its form probably reminds something to a hat or a chef’s hat. Another story around the Bonèt comes from the Langhe. It states that one puts so to speak “a hat” – a crown – on dinner with this dessert. Anyhow, it tastes excellently and even better when prepared the day before. Incredibly handy when you expect guests.


PS: The Vanilla Quinces are a perfect match!
