Peaches are out there now and I am so loving the sweet taste these summer days. Peaches are definitely one of my favourite fruits and I cannot get enough when they are in season. I prefer peaches pure or in a fruit salad or dessert.
Combining the sweetness of peaches with a savoury dish was something that reminded me of 70s cookbooks, when using fruits in a meat dish was considered to be “exotic”. We all know Toast Hawaii. But then I was taught better.
I have been struggling with a cold the past week and now Philipp is not feeling well this weekend. We both need some food that gives us energy: quinoa and vegetables.
We had a beautiful pointed cabbage in our veg box on friday (see picture). Pointed cabbage has softer leaves and tastes slightly sweeter than white cabbage. I really like it. However due to the cold weather our box has only been sparely filled over the winter months.
I wanted to make a summery version of one of my favourite deserts: TIramisu! Actually I have never had another version of the all time classic with mascarpone and eggs. Probably the best Tiramisu I ever had was when I was at my friend’s place in Italy. She made a real rich and tasty one. This is a rather “light” version of the classic recipe and is very refreshing.
My version is with strawberries and lemon and the base consists of vanilla yoghurt and cream. To add the refreshing taste, the ladyfingers are soaked in lemon juice.
