Pizza with mini king oyster mushrooms and feta

September 14, 2017

We were in Vancouver a couple of days ago and of course went to Granville Island. We still have great produce available in Kelowna since it’s not winter yet so I didn’t buy that much, but still, indulged in a few things. One thing I found were these beautiful mini king oyster mushrooms and I bought a lot. Some of the mushrooms went into a pasta dish, others into vegetables packets roasted in a parchment...

Flatbread with olive oil and homemade za’atar

December 24, 2015

Zaatar is the sine qua non of middle eastern cooking. It’s indispensable for its flavour and versatility. Zaatar, meaning thyme in Arabic, refers not to thyme but to a slightly tangy, intensely aromatic  spice blend that can be used to flavour many dishes, middle eastern or not.

Fig and gorgonzola flatbread

September 3, 2015

I can never resists fresh, ripe figs when I see them. More often than not I enjoy them fresh on their own but I also make a few things with them.

Flatbread with Tomato and Mozzarella

I made this flatbread with whole wheat pizza dough I had lingering in the fridge for a couple of days. I was looking for pizza”esque” appetizer to serve with a glass of wine and thought the longer, rectangular shape would be good as it can be cut into strips that are easy to serve and eat. I made three flatbreads with three different toppings, each so good and deserving of its own post. Watch for upcoming... View Article

Crisp Flat Bread with Herbs

March 29, 2012

  Fine restaurants often serve a lovely bread basket that includes crisp breadsticks and flatbreads. They are very easy to make and are a nice addition to your entertaining table at home. They can be prepared a day in advance. I make this dough in a Bosch bread mixer but you can try it with a large food processor or another mixer, or, of course, it can be done by hand. Ingredients: 1 3/4 cups... View Article
