I have experimented with raw desserts quite a lot recently and became a big fan of raw brownies. I don’t really like raw chocolate mousse. Or maybe I didn’t find a good recipe yet. I made it based on avocado – the classic. But I am not yet convinced by the combination of chocolate and avocado. However, the combination of raw cocoa and dates – these raw chcolate pralinés are based on – is simply divine.
With the beginning of autumn this week, I am looking forward to a great variety of autumn vegetables. I bought potatoes, sweet potatoes, eggplants and parsnip yesterday to make an Indian dish that caught my attention in a recent issue of Food and Travel magazine. I also bought the first pumpkin yesterday. Today it popped into my head that in the 90′s my parents used to make tons of pickled pumpkin every year (I think it was some kind of trend back then) and that I very much disliked it. Maybe I will try it this year and reevaluate the taste.
