Yoghurt Panna Cotta with Fruit Compote


Don’t you just love panna cotta? I absolutely adore it, but always have a tiny bit of a bad conscience when I eat it. That’s what made me think of a lighter version: with Greek yoghurt! It’s a little more «sour» due to the yoghurt and great in combination with fruit compote (any sort you like!).

White Asparagus with Avocado & Parmesan with Vinaigrette Sauce


Spring time is asparagus time. In Germany, Austria and Switzerland white asparagus is a big thing during April to June. The white asparagus is actually no different to the green one. The easy explanation is: it’s the same plant, however the white one is grown under soil and the green one is exposed to sun light straight away and receives its green color (chlorophyll / photosynthesis). In any case: A delicious and light dinner.

Zucchini with Mint & Basil Pesto and Halloumi


Have you ever tried halloumi cheese? It origins from Greece and has a fairly hard substance and is slightly squeaky when you eat it. It really tastes great on the BBQ too, by the way, keeping that in mind for summer time! But it is also great year around, combined with zucchini today!

It’s perfect as a starter (for 4) or a light dinner (for 2). The color combination caught my eye directly and the taste is great. Hope you like it!
