Charlotte Louise


This a delightful recipe, both quick and easy to make. Great for chocoholics!!!

Ingredients:
12 sponge fingers biscuit (I used 15)
1 cup water
2 tbs sugar
2 tbs Grand Marnier (or rum)
Filling-
1 teas gelatin
2 tbs water
250 g dark chocolate, melted
50 g butter, melted
2 teas grated orange zest
2 X 300 ml thickened cream
2 tbs icing sugar
Cocoa for dusting
Fruit of forest for serving (optional)
Method:
Line a charlotte mould (7 cups capacity) with glad wrap. Mix water sugar and liquor until sugar melted. Dip each biscuit into this and line sides of the mould.
Filling-
sprinkle gelatin over 2 tbs water in cup, stand in small pan of simmering water; stir until dissolved. Combine chocolate, butter, zest and gelatin in a bowl. Beat cream with icing sugar until soft peaks form, fold into chocolate.
Pour filling into mould. Refrigerate for 3 hours, before taking out of mould (upside-down) and dusting with cocoa.
Note: because I had a wide mould, my filling didn't come to the end of biscuits, so I had to bent biscuits inside in order to make it even with filling.

Šarlota Luiz

Jednostavno i brzo za napraviti; sasvim oduševljavajuće - pogotovu za čokoholičare!!!

Potrebno:
12 bisvitnih prutica (kao za tiramisu)15 je meni trebalo
1 solja vode
2 K secera
2 K likera narandze (ili rum)
Fil-
1 k zelatine
2 K vode
250 gr tamne cokolade, otopljene
50 gr maslaca, otopljenog
2 k ribane korice narandze
2 X 300 ml slatkog vrhnja
2 K secera u prahu
kakao za posuti
jagodicasto voce za servirati (po zelji)
Nacin:
Sa providnom folijom oblozite kalup zapremine 1,75 L. Pomijesajte vodu sa secerom i rumom. Umacite biskvitne kekse i slazite okolo zidova kalupa.
Fil-
U solji sa 2 K vode pospite zelatin, stavite u manj posudu sa vodom i zagrijavajte mijesajuci dok se zelatin ne otopi. Ovo pomijesajte sa cokoladom, maslacem i koricom narandze. Umutite vrhnje sa secerom , pa sve sjedinite sa cokoladnom masom. Uspit u pripremljeni kalup. Fil treba da dodje do vrha keksa. Meni se to nije dogodilo (15 keksa) pa sam vrhove podvinula prema unutrasnjosti, kako bi bili u istom nivou sa filom. Rashladite najmanje 3 sata prije okretanja Sarlote na posluzavnik i posipanja sa kakaom.

Grilled (barbecued) Eggplant


I love eggplants! Following recipe is my favorite way of preparing this vegetable. Goes well with grilled meat, fish or as a vegetarian stack with other veggies and some cheese.
If you place grilled slices into jars, cover with good olive oil, they can last 3-4 months in a dark, cool place.

Ingredients:
2 medium eggplants, cut into (7mm)rounds
Salt
2-3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 small bunch Basil leaves, thorn
1/3 cup olive oil
Method:
Sprinkle eggplants with salt, leave it aside for 1/2 hour. Rinse and squeeze, then pat dry. Brush with olive oil. The rest of oil mix with garlic and basil leaves (add more oil if needed) Grill eggplant(BBQ or griddle pan), each side for a minute. Place into prepared dish, pour each layer with prepared dressing. Enjoy warm or cold.



Patlidzani sa grila / rostilja

Ovako pripremljeni patlidzani (plavi paradajzi, balancani) su mi najdrazi. Odlicno idu uz meso ili ribu sa rostilja; ili kao vegetarijanski obrok sa drugim povrcem i sirom . Smjesteni u tegle / galone zaliveni dobrim maslinovim uljem, mogu trajati 2-3 mjeseca na suhom i hladnom mjestu.

Potrebno:
2 srednja patlidzana, isjecena na (7mm) kolutove
so
3-4 cena bijelog luka, sjeckana ili protisnuta
1 mali svezanj bosiljka, iskidani listovi
1/3 solje maslinovog ulja
Nacin:
Nasolite patlidzane, ostavite ih po strani na 1/2 sata. Saperite i obrisite; namazite svaki sa maslinovim uljem. Pecite na gril-tavi ili rostilju svaku stranu po minut. Ostatak ulja pomijesjte sa bosiljkom i bijelim lukom (ako treba dodajte jos ulja). Pospite po svakom sloju pecenih patlidzana. Uzivajte toplo ili hladno.

Samosas (revised)



I don't have much time lately, so please excuse my absence from commenting;
Here is reminding of my first post!

Nemam mnogo vremena u posljednje vrijeme, pa vas molim da mi oprostite sto ne komentarisem na vasim postovima. Evo podsjecanja na moj prvi post - cisto da me ne zaboravite!

Dough:
450 g plain flour
100 g butter, softened
1 teas salt
150 ml water, warm
Filling:
2 tbs vegetable oil, or any other neutral
2 medium onions, chopped finally
250 g minced meat, your choice
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1-1,5 cm ginger, grated - or 1/2 teas powder
1/2 teas turmeric powder
2 teas coriander powder
1 1/2 teas cumin powder
a pinch of chilli powder
1/2 teas salt
120 ml water
150 g peas
2 tbs coconut, grated
1 teas 'Garam Masala' powder
2 tbs coriander leaves, chopped
1 tbs lemon juice

-Make a stiff dough (food processor can help, divide in 6 balls, cover with Glad wrap and leave rest.
-Meanwhile, heat the oil and add onions. Fry for a couple of minutes, then add mince and the spices. When meat is ready (loses pink colour)add the rest of ingredients. Cook for a few minutes more, and then let it cool. Heat the oven to 200*C, if you want to bake the Samosas.
-Roll out the dough balls (one by one)into a 23-24 cm circle. Each circle divide in 6 pieces (like pizza slices). Wet the edges with a brush dipped into water.
-On each little triangle put a spoonful of filling. Lift the corners of each triangle,and seal the edges with your fingers, applying pressure.
-Place Samosas on baking sheets, sprayed with oil, then spray all over again.Bake 10-12 min, or until slightly golden.
Samosas can be deep fried, if you're not concerned about the fat content.
Note: If you replace the meat with grated potatoes, you'll get Vegetarian Samosas.

Cooking-Varieties:Food and Health Benefits (Guest Post)


My guest today is Wan Maznah, blogger from Malaysia. When I discovered her blog, I was delighted to realise it's not a regular blog with written recipes. In Wans space you'll find jokes about food, educative statements about health benefits of certain food (radish for cough ), very unusual cooking techniques (cooking in salt or sand) even some rhyming recipes.
Now, that IS fun blog!

Moja gosca danas je Wan Maznah, blogerica iz Malazije. Kada sam otkrila njen blog, bila sam odusevljena cinjenicom da to nije obican blog sa napisanim receptima. Na njenom blogu cete pronaci sale o hrani (jokes about food), edukativne postove o ljekovitim svojstvima odredjenih namirnica (rotkva za kasalj -(radish for cough ), veoma neobicne tehnike kuhanja (pecenje u soli ili pijesku - (cooking in salt or sand), pa cak i nekoliko rimovanih recepata (rhyming recipes).

E, to je za mene zabavan blog!


Here is what Wan says about herself:

"I am Wan Maznah from Malaysia. I blog on foodie under the name "cooking varieties". Up keeping to the name “varieties”, my blog is acomposition of things culinary, including recipes, health benefits, food art, tips and food jokes. I have incorporated international recipes from international chefs/blogger chefs via guest posts. I would love to be a culinary artist with designer food that pleases both the palate and the eyes. Jasna did a guest post in my blog once, I find her recipes are generally very authentic and some looks gourmet too, like a platter fit for the high table- and nothing less. I feel very honored to be here in her esteemed culinary blog. Feel free to visit my site http://www.cooking-varieties.blogspot.com

I've chosen 2 posts from her blog, that I find very interesting. Have a look at tips on decorating a Swiss roll

Quickly I started taking over the preparation of family get-togethers and much to my mother’s relief Christmas dinner. I didn’t mind that most of my friends didn’t even notice the effort I put in (they were a bit more interested in knocking back the wine), that wasn’t why I did it."
What a delightful young woman!
Here are a couple of Gloria's posts that I find very interesting and helpful.

Cak u mojim ranim dvadesetima, sjedeci u kancelariji, cesto sam sanjarila i planirala razne 'party-e'- sastavljala spiskove gostiju, odabirala jelovnik i temu zabave (izvinjavam se bivsim poslovodavcima, ako citaju ovo). Brzo sam pocela preuzimati odgovornosti o organizaciji porodicnih skupova i Bozicnih vecera (mami je to bilo veliko olaksanje)."


How to Pair Wine and Food / Kako uskladiti vino sa hranom



1. When pairing wine, match the weight and texture of the wine with the weight and texture of the food. For example, if you’re serving a light-bodied fish such as sea bass, then a fruity light wine such as Pinot Grigio would work well with it. If you’re having a heavier fish such as salmon then a richer-bodied wine such as a Burgundy or Pinot Noir would work well.
Uskladite 'tezinu' i teksturu vina prema hrani; ako servirate blagu ribu, birajte blaza vina. Za ribu sa jacim okusom (losos) moze ici i teze vino npr Burgundy)
2. Balance the strength of flavours in the wine with the strength of flavours in the food. If you’re serving a mild-tasting dish such as pork or turkey, then a milder wine such as a Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay is good. For more intense flavoured food, such as beef in a rich sauce or a tomato-based pasta dish, go for a fuller-bodied wine such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Shiraz.
Balansirajte jacinu okusa. Primjer: Ako servirate dobro zacinjeno jelo, treba da izaberete gusca i aromaticnija vina.
3. Match the flavours in the food with the flavours in the wine. For example, if you’re serving up duck in a plum sauce then a fruity red wine is in order. If you’re having a peppery dish then match a peppery Zinfandel.
Uskladite aromu i okus hrane sa vinom. Primjer ako servirate patku sa sosom od sljiva, treba da izaberete vina sa vocnim elementom.
4. Balance tastes. Though balancing the strength of the wine and food is important, it’s also necessary to bear in mind which tastes work well together. If you’re serving spicy food, for example, a rich wine will not work as it will be too overwhelming on the palatte, so go for a fruitier wine such as a riesling which will offset the spice.
Birajte upotpunjavajuce okuse. Morate imati na unu balans; ako je neko jelo ljuto, bolje je izabrati neko blaze vino sa vocnoim okusom Teska vina bi bila prekomjerna osjetilima i zelucu.

On the question of Glassware / O pitanju Čaša

There are correct types of glassware that should be used to serve every drink. You can be as strict or as casual as you like with this information, but it is good to know and apply in a realistic way to your life. Because this can get out of hand (see below)




The absolute basics. / Osnovno sta trebate imati

Fine water glasses: nothing looks worse than going to the effort of having nice wine glasses only to pull out some jam jar water glasses. I like stemless wine glasses for this, or other alternatives: long slender Hi-ball or a sturdy short stemed water glass.

Champagne Flutes: I always have an extra box of these for birthday and other celebrations which have more guests.
Case za sampanjac
White Wine Glasses: In the most basic sense they should be smaller than the red wine glass. If you drink a particular white wine more than the others ie Sauvigion Blanc I would make the effort to purchase that exact glass style.
Case za Bijelo vino
Red Wine Glasses: As above in the most basic requirement would be to have the red wine glasses bigger than the white. And in the style you most frequently drink. I like having Shiraz and Pinot Glasses – since they are visually very different and make changing wines a bit more of an occasion.
Case za crveno vino
Desert Wine Glasses: You can pick up very cheaply, even if you don’t drink much dessert wine keep a box on hand.

Sherry or Port Glasses: Particularly for when my parents visit. I have become quite particular to Spanish sherry after dinner as a treat rather than a dessert.
