Recipe with video - Easy to make. Few ingredients. No added sugar. The only mistake is that they don't last long once made. And it is not because they get old enough to turn bad.

You have probably also had that experience. When you think that you have bought a great cookbook, and you eagerly page through it. Only to find out that it contains only one single recipe you like, but which turns out to actually be a *really* great recipe. The cookbook with the recipe for onion soup is the perfect example of this for me :-) So now that I have written the recipe here on the site, I can finally get rid of that cookbook.

When you make a salad at home, it has a tendency to end up as Iceberg salad with tomato, cucumber and onion. Fortunately, there are a lot of simple and very good French classics to be inspired by.

Video Recipe - It is a LOT of fun to make your own cheese and it's actually pretty easy. It does takes a little bit of utensils and ingredients that you don't normally have, but they are easy to obtain and it is definitely worth the effort. The funny thing is that all the cheeses we know have the same basic recipe. Just small changes in how you follow the recipe gives the different cheeses. So if you can make a kind of cheese you can actually make them all. Feta cheese is one of the easiest and fastest. And you don't have to wait a month before it can be eaten. Therefore, it is an ideal starting cheese.

Video recipe - whew ... nuts are expensive. But this bread has still, in a short amount of time, become one of my favorite recipes. A bread which is made entirely from nuts, grains, seeds, eggs and oil. Everybody likes it. It is particularly good for cheese, charcuterie, Pâtés, etc. But it is also good with "ordinary" spreads. Or as a snack if you cut it into thin slices and roast it in a pan with a little butter.

I'm not much for eggplant. It's like a dry and boring version of the cucumber. Which is already the world's most boring vegetable. But if the eggplant is cooked just right, it can be really delicious in both taste and texture. Eggplant puré is one of the "good" cooking methods. Here are two different versions from both the Mediterranean and Asia. With some variations on top.

Video Recipe - Typically we fry a leg of lamb whole. Because it's the easiest to do. But a really good trick is to debone and butterfly it. You can cook it a lot faster then. The flattened shape also gives more room for a browned surface. You will also get more of that smoky barbecued flavor all oever the meat. Or you can roll them into a meat roll with marinade inside, so you get the marinade flavor onto all of the meat.

Rilette is a method of preserving meat in fat, as a kind of finely divided "head cheese". The fat ensures an oxygen-free environment that prevents salmonella and other nasty bacterias. It tastes great, and once in a while I just have to have it. It is also a great sandwich filler.

It is a part of many recipes, but it is rarely described in depth just exactly what a "bouquet" is. Bouquet garni means "a bundle of herbs". There may be several different kinds of herbs in it. The classical version consist only of parsley, thyme and bay leaves. The typical mistake is to make it too small with to few herbs.

Video Recipe - Basic soup / julienne soup is a simple vegetable soup which is very similar to the Italian minestrone. With a few changes it IS a minestrone. But I do usually this simpler version, and I'll just throw in whatever extra ingredients to spice it up a bit.

I often use stock in my cooking, and I like to have pre-cooked chicken leftovers in the refrigerator. So about once a week I make a batch of pressure cooker stock of chicken. It is much easier and faster than the traditional way, and it tastes excellent.
