When we are not on the road or travelling for our job, we are at home in Antwerp. One of the best parts of being home is that you can cook your own food, eat your own breakfast or dinner. When you want, what you want.
Recently we got an new assignment from Food & Wine Magazine to cook 10 easy & quick recipes from Grace Parisi and shoot the result.
These 10 recipes are very straightforward and not complicated. They don’t break the bank and they are great for during the week or even when you are having friends over.
We loved the chicken in the oven dish with cherry tomatoes, honey and rosemary or the very surprising pasta with melon and prosciutto combination. As a desert we liked the gingerbread with pear. Perfect for preparing on a windy, autumn evening.
We looked for great accessories in our cupboard:
For the chicken wings we used an oven dish we bought in Langkawi, Malaysia and in the glass bowl from China we used a small, wooden spoon we found in Japan.
The fresh pasta with avocado and crab is served on a plate from the Sept de Set collection from the Belgian brand Serax. The fork is from our own set of beautiful Pott cutlery.
The chicken hamburger we gave a bit more cachet by serving it on a hand moulded plate made in a Parisian workshop and found in one of our favourite shops in Antwerp, ‘t Magazyn.
For other dishes like the gingerbread cake we used a dish with a more old fashioned design from the Swedish brand Rorstrand, a sistercompany of the Finnish brand Iittala.The elegant, golden spoon is from the German brand Mono-A.
