Croissant sandwich with comté and thyme roasted mushrooms and shallots, with a small salad.

Sautéed onions, mushrooms and broccoli with lots of garlic. I can't remember what I did with them once cooked!

Homemade roasted pumpkin gnocchi in a brown butter sage sauce, with a side of caramelised leeks.

Okra for dinner
We bought okra from one of the Indian grocery stores near Gare du Nord to make a delicious bhendi masala.

Masoor dal to go with the bhendi masala.

Homemade glazed doughnuts
My first attempt at homemade yeasted doughnuts turned out rather well. Except our apartment smelt a little like a diner after all the frying, and I cut the holes a little too large! I used this recipe.

Arnaud Larher chocolates
A box of Arnaud Larher chocolates to nibble on.

Crusty baguette with ripe camembert, tart apples, and a grainy mustard-balsamic spread.


Our weekly homemade pizza in the oven. My preference is for a slow-rise pizza dough but this time I tried Jamie Oliver's recipe. Tasty but a little bread-like. Also, I miss my pizza stone.

Spagetti with roasted eggplant and mushrooms in a basil and tomato sauce with buffalo mozzarella.

Chocolate Ganache Custard Tart

Chocolate ganache custard tart from David Lebovitz's Ready for Dessert. Easy and fantastic!

Lemon looking Clementine
A lemon-looking clementine that we found lurking in the piles of clementines at the market this weekend.


  1. Delicious! I'm inspired!! The okra looks surprisingly fresh and more importantly very tender. Let us have a pic of the bhindi masala as well.

  2. As always, you are eating so well! The pumpkin gnocchi sounds fab, do share the recipe! And what a great for a croissant sandwich.
