La Fabbrica, Paris

Italy once again, in the midst of Paris! The perfect go-to for a dinner with friends, maybe not so much for a romantic one-to-one given how close the tables are to one another. Set in an old “Boulangerie” with its typical old school façade still in place for a vintage-y look, you will love the setting and decor, very New Yorker Little Italy.

Greens and Feta Frittata – Frittata aux Légumes et Féta

Frittata, otherwise know as the the Spanish omelette, is an easy way to quickly fix dinner pretty much out of nothing. Just like our omelette you can add anything you’d like in it and come up with your own. This one is fresh and summery with peas and green beans for the sweet touch and goat cheese (feta) for the salty balance. Continue reading “Greens and Feta Frittata – Frittata aux Légumes et Féta”

Miso Salmon on veggie noodles – Saumon Miso sur nouilles veggie

Yet another salmon recipe I hear you say? Yes but very different and still a hell of a tasty one! The miso adds so much flavor and reminds me of Japan… I served it over a bowl of “veggie” noodles aka a mix of seaweed, glass noodles and julienne-sliced cucumber but it obviously works with rice or just plain rice noodles for instance. Make your pick and shoot ahead! Continue reading “Miso Salmon on veggie noodles – Saumon Miso sur nouilles veggie”

Shrimp burrito – Burrito aux crevettes

Here’s a nice and fresh alternative to the classic burrito! I served this over Sunday brunch to change from the usual eggs and salmon and I’d say it was definitely a nice shot. Plus, it’s a nice way to use left over rice. Of course it also works with chicken instead of shrimps for the meat-lovers among you! Keep the rest the same and your burrito should be a mind-blower in any case. Continue reading “Shrimp burrito – Burrito aux crevettes”
