• How to Make Homemade Cream of Fennel Soup, Recipe

    Cream of Fennel Soup

    Thursday, 1st February 2018Tyler

    Hey! Welcome to the first ever French February! To kick off this annual celebration, we’ll take a big hearty scoop of Cream of Fennel Soup. Now, this stuff is amazing. A friend tried this at Le Mas Candille (a 5-star restaurant just outside of Cannes, France) and couldn’t stop talking about it. So, I tried to whip up my own version of this delicious dish. Personally, I think I nailed it. But I’ll leave that up to you. (If I ever run into that guy again with a warm bowl of cream of fennel sitting on hand, then we’ll find out.…

  • How to Make Authentic Italian Tiramisu with White Chocolate Chips

    Traditional Coffee-free Tiramisu

    Wednesday, 24th January 2018Tyler

    I remember the first time I laid my eyes on a tiramisu. It was glorious; it tasted absolutely stunning; from the moment it touched my tongue I knew I had to learn how to make it. That was just one awe-inspiring event that changed the course of my taste for desserts. That happened during my first week living in Italy, and I was in awe of practically everything. I wouldn’t call it a culture shock, but I was definitely surprised. My friend and I had joined a family for dinner and the wife just so happened to be a professional chef. Although…

  • How to Make Authentic Greek Moussaka Step 10 Final

    Moussaka

    Thursday, 7th December 2017Tyler

    Mουσακάς! Greek Moussaka! I’m really excited about this dish. So excited that I made it six times before posting about it! Moussaka is wonderful for a bunch of reasons (and I know you’ll agree once you make it!). I’m not sure how to list them so I’ll just go for it Moussaka tastes wonderful. Your first forkful contains a blend of flavors. You’ll catch a hint of thyme, the starch from the potatoes, the sharper flavors of the ragù, the subtle eggplant and zucchini juices, and the creaminess of the béchamel sauce. It is both affordable and easy to make!…

  • Bechame Sauce Step 3 Slowly Add Milk Until Thickened

    Béchamel Sauce

    Friday, 1st December 2017Tyler

    It’s official! Winter has come, and I wish to ‘pound out’ those wonderful dishes I only make during winter. But, I couldn’t help myself and I made a lasagna and Moussaka instead 🙂 While making the Moussaka I realized that I hadn’t yet posted anything about béchamel sauce. I love a good béchamel sauce, it provides so much flavor to every dish. It can change your lasagna from an ordinary pumpkin to one driven by horses (Cinderella). And the more you cook the more often you’ll end up using this recipe! Before diving into the moussaka recipe, I want you to close…

    Authentic Spanish Hot Chocolate

    Tuesday, 14th November 2017Tyler

    Ah! España! Home of the great navigators and colonizers like Christopher Columbus and Don Quixote. The other day, while eating breakfast, I reflected upon my scrumptious omelet and thought of Spain. Wishing I had something a little more than water with my meal I began thinking about Spanish breakfasts. Lo and behold a classic Spanish breakfast came to mind: chocolate caliente and churros! I know you’ll love making chocolate caliente as much as I did. I actually made it four times in the past few days just to experiment and get the flavor just right (and because it is ridiculously good!). I’m still…

    Homemade Grapefruit Gelato

    Tuesday, 31st October 2017Tyler

    Happy Halloween!!! The other day I opened my freezer in search of a snack (ice cream) but couldn’t find one (I’m sure you’ve had the same experience). To remedy future treasure hunts I decided to make a delicious treat I know you’ll love: Gelato! Now, it may just be me but gelato is amazing. I’m sure you will be amazed as I was at how simple of a treat it is to make!   Everywhere you go in Italy you can find it and eat it. In Sicily, you might put it inside a brioche (I ate the one in…
