Cooking with friends at Chefparade’s Cooking School

This is not our first time taking cooking courses with Adri, and certainly not the last. We always enjoy a nice evening talking about food, learning new tricks, laughing, and eating obviously. 🙂

This time around, we cooked mussels with parmesan and parsley, followed by warm goat cheese with salad, olives, and wallnuts, and a beef cheek stew (with lots of wine) with mashed potatoes, and crème brĂ»lĂ©es for dessert. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it? Wait until you see the pictures! đź™‚

On Repeat Today: The Cranberries

I just learned that Dolores O’Riordan, singer of The Cranberries, just passed away. It’s such a big part of my childhood: I discovered music with them, it was the first CD I got when I bought my first hi-fi. I think I’ll be listening to them quite a bit in the next few days.

On Repeat Today: Kraak & Smaak

My wife and I discovered Kraak & Smaak about 10 years ago and loved it. So when we learnt that they would be in Budapest at Akvárium Klub, we had to be there!

The whole set was great, but I really liked their take on I Feel Love by Donna Summer. Since it turns out they had already played this the last time they were in Budapest, you can enjoy it too! :)

This Is Us is perfect for that.

The Danube’s changing colours

Depending on the weather and the light, the Danube can look dramatically different; these days it’s mostly grey but I got the chance to catch a nice green Danube last week. Compare it with this Blue Danube a couple of days later!
