Three different and quick proposals for iftar

The month of Ramadan began last week. For all of you who fast, after a busy working day, I believe that it is sometimes challenging to prepare a healthy and delicious meal for iftar, without spending hours in the kitchen. It is certainly important that after an all-day fast, food for iftar is not difficult for the stomach. My suggestion is seafood in 3 ways: salmon with vegetables, tuna file with bulgur wheat and pasta with seafood. You do not need more than 30 minutes to prepare each of these dishes. And seafood is In season in May, so it’s...

Tastes of Asia: South Korea

For some time now, I have been announcing that Chakula’s associate is wandering around Asia and that I will share some of her gastronomic experiences. The first one is from Seoul and Jeju Island in South Korea. I believe that these photos and various dishes you will rarely see. Our associate points out that the food is quite spicy and that some of the dishes have a very intense smell, which certainly takes time to get used to. Initially, she did not like like what was served, but in time she was very accustomed and enjoying all tastes and...

You know about those cakes that are so photogenic, so you think: this is surely too complicated to make. And in fact it is not at all. Well, this is just such a cake.

The first recipe for mille feuille appeared in a French cookbook in 1651. Sweet enough, airy, and rich in taste. This version is enriched with strawberries, because they are In season in May. Preparation time:...

Pão de quejo

Every month I’m really looking forward to the Guest Chef Recipe section. I believe that every day we follow a lot of bloggers, so when I choose a recipe I enjoy preparing it and certainly sharing my impressions. Andrea recently celebrated 10 years of her blog Cukar. And what is better as a congrats than when someone tries out your recipe. Pão de quejo is made from tapioca flour, which is gluten-free, and comes from Brazilian manioc plant. Pão de quejo I already made several times, because they are delicious and excellent as a snack. So, great for weekend gathering or watching...

In season: May

End of April and the beginning of May honored us with beautiful sunny days. Everything kind of gets better and easier when the weather is warmer and when the days are longer. Nature is awakening and as I’ve seen on Instagram many of you have already visited the beach. While we are waiting for the summer vacation, in May, we can still cook with April groceries, especially asparagus and radishes. There is also still the star of the year: watercress. In season in May there are: strawberries, garlic, fresh herbs, seafood. I have to tell you that I have been eating strawberries every...
