Here are some of the recipes that I find myself going back to again and again this season..




  • 1 1/2 cup all purpose-flour

  • 3/8 cup whole milk (room temp)

  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast

  • 2 tbsp sugar

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tbsp brandy

  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter (room temp)

  • Lemon zest of 1/4 lemon

  • Jam of choice (raspberry is used here)

Place the flour in a mixing bow. Add 1/8 cup milk, the yeast, and 1/2 tsp sugar. In another bowl, stir the remaining milk, sugar, egg, salt, brandy, and lemon zest. With the mixture running on low, slowly add the wet ingredients. Knead for about 3-5 minutes.

Shape the dough into a large ball. Transfer to a bowl greased with canola oil. Cover with plastic wrap, put in warm place until double in size. Lightly flour your work surface. Cut disks using a glass. 

Heat a deep skillet with oil to 365F (185C). Fry the disks for about 30 seconds. Train on paper towels.

Using a pastry bag, inject with jam of choice. Top with some confectioners sugar. 






The Salmon

  • 1 salmon filet 

  • 100g salt

  • 100g sugar

  • 200ml beer (heavily aromatic)

The Pancakes

  • 60g buckwheat flour

  • 1 1/2 tbsp poppyseeds

  • 200-300 ml water

  • 1 large egg

To Serve

  • Spinach

  • Sour Cream

  • Pickled Onions or radish

Make some incisions into the skin side of the salmon. Sprinkle the salt and sugar on both sides of the salmon, coating evenly. Place in a dish that holds the salmon. Pour over the beer, cover, and put in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. Make sure to flip after 3 hours.  

To make the pancake batter, combine all the buckwheat, poppyseeds, water, and egg together in a bowl. For thinner pancakes, use 300 ml, for slightly thicker pancakes, use less water. Fry up butter in a skillet on medium heat and make the pancakes. 

To serve, slice off pieces of the cured salmon, combine with the spinach and onions, and top with sour cream. 





The Salad

  • 1 large head of cauliflower

  • 1 tbsp ground turmeric

  • 1 tbsp fennel seeds

  • Salt and freshly ground pepper

For Dressing

  • 3 tbsp tahini

Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Wash and drain. Toss the florets in turmeric, fennel seeds, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Transfer to a baking tray and cook for 10-15 minutes or until the cauliflower begins to char.

Roast the almonds dry in the oven or on the stove. Toast the sunflowers and pumpkin seeds with some salt and oil. 

Combine the roasted cauliflower, the roasted almonds and seeds, the raisins, herbs, lemon juice, and the dressing in a bowl. Enjoy cool. 



Burdock root is high in antioxidants, removes toxins from blood, may inhibit some types of cancer, can treat skin issues, and may be an aphrodisiac. This juice is high in many vitamins and nutrients and will certainly make you feel better! 

  • 1 Burdock root

  • 1/4 Pineapple

  • 8 Kale stalks

  • 2 Apples

  • 1 Orange

Juice the ingredients together. If you want to sweeten it up, add more pineapple or apples. You can punch this up by adding some gin or vodka.

Preheat the oven to 350F (180C). Crush the cookies into crumbs using either a rolling pin or a food processor.  Combine with the butter. Grease up a pie dish and construct the pie crust in the pie dish, pushing the crumbs together to form the base. Bake for 10 minutes.

Juice and zest the limes. Set aside. 

In a large bowl, whisk the egg yolks, then combine the condensed milk. Add the cream, lime juice and zest (save a little zest for decoration later). Then add to the baked pie crust and put in the oven for 12-15 minutes. Leave to cool and then chill for at least 4 hours.
