my flourless cake with tea on Oksana Newton’s table is like a poor peasant among aristocrats (her own French pastry).
She is an international pastry chef and I feel so good when she says that my cake was delicious and she eats second piece and asks me for more ... it means a lot to me !
This time (I mastered my recipe to make the cake fluffy and yummy) :
1 cup of flourless almond meal ,
1 cup of coconut shredded ,
4 chicken eggs ,
1/3 cup raw brown sugar ,
2 tab spoons cranberries ,
1/2 tea spoon baking soda burnt in apple cider before it is added to the mixture .
Time to prepare : 5 min.
Time to cook : 40 min till you smell that almondy aroma of the freshness from the kitchen everywhere in your hous - then you know that it’s ready ... good cooks have great noses ... mine is 10/10... but I am still not as good as Oksana :(
my salad ( Oksana Newton sorry :) ) I can not avoid green even if there is enough yellow and red ...and even zero... :)
they said my dinner was green and sad but it was tasty... plus the title for this post was supposed to be longe than the actual post text
I tried to keep it red but the colours insisted and asked to be added : raspberries , watermelon slices , persimmon, white and yellow nectarines , black cherries and strawberries , a symphony of taste Mussorgsky would be resting next to all his mighty friends 🙂 no I did not , I did not have it all by myself ...
my spring salado:
water cress ; tomatoes ; cucumbers ; apple cider vinegar with honey, Ukrainian super flavourish sun flower oil , no salt salt and calamari .... all in one bowl...
ALMOND MEAL FRUIT AND NUT CAKE
1.5 cups of almond meal
0.5 cups of cornflour
0.3 cups of raw sugar
0.3 cups of desiccated coconut
0.25 cups of polenta or millet
1 tea spoon of baking soda mixed with 1 tea spoon white vinegar or apple cider
0.5 cup of coconut or rice bran oil
0.25 cups of sesame seeds (I used black sesame seeds, walnuts and pepitas - the same amount shown)
3 raw chicken eggs
1 lemon rind (I used cranberries - around 0.25 cups)
2 tea spoons of vanilla essence
flowers and berries to decorate
you can add syrup cooked from one lemon juice and 2 table spoons of raw sugar but I did not
add berry tea to this cake to serve with... I added strawberry tea.
the cake is delicious - the recipe is changed from what I saw online and it still works wonders!
400 Gradi / #400GradiYarraValley has launched at the new location and opened its doors in #YarraValley Coldstream, Victoria, Australia at the partnership grounds of Rochford Wines - Yarra Valley estate.
OPENING DATE: October 27
LOCATION: 878-880 Maroondah Highway, Coldstream Yarra Valley
Born from a desire to bring traditional, authentic #Neapolitan cuisine to Melbourne, 400 Gradi offers customers the ultimate Italian dining experience. But it was not the love for Italian food that started this business. It was the desire for a pair of sneakers. Since the age of 12, 400 Gradi founder Johnny Di Francesco / Chef Johnny Di Francesco has had a love for pizza and traditional Italian food that has driven him. Starting at the very bottom, Johnny began working in a pizzeria after school so he could buy himself the sneakers that his parents could not afford for him. Working his way up the ranks, Johnny developed an undeniable love for the food he was creating and by the age of 15, he was hooked.
Having commenced an engineering degree, Johnny realised in a first year lecture that he was constantly daydreaming about getting back to his job at the pizza shop. Gathering his things, he excused himself to go to the bathroom, and never returned. Johnny’s life as a restaurateur began. After heading to Italy to train in traditional techniques, methods, and in restaurants across the country, Johnny returned to Melbourne determined to introduce the food of Naples to his homeland in Melbourne.
In 2008, 400 Gradi was born with the opening of 400 Gradi, Lygon Street, East Brunswick, VIC 3057 . 400 Gradi refers to the high temperature at which a thin-based traditional Neapolitan pizza is cooked (for just 90 seconds!) in a wood-fired oven. In April 2014, Johnny was crowned the #WorldPizzaChampion at the Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza in Italy, the first Australian to have ever won. Competing against 600 other competitors from 35 countries, Johnny’s Margherita Pizza took out the top prize. Now a Melbourne institution, 400 Gradi Brunswick embodies Johnny’s passion and love of food, and has resulted in the expansion of the Gradi Group.
400 Gradi now has restaurants in Essendon and at Eastland Shopping Centre in Ringwood, as well as a coveted position at Crown Melbourne. There is also a 400 Gradi restaurant on P&O Cruises Australia Pacific Explorer cruise ship. In late 2017, the first 400 Gradi restaurant opened in Bahrain, and more restaurants are due to open in 2018 in Kuwait, New Zealand and Dallas, Texas in the U.S.
400 Gradi adheres to the guidelines of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana (the world authority on traditional Neapolitan pizza). Johnny was the first ever Australian inducted into the AVPN, and is the Principal of Australasia for the Association. As such, Johnny and 400 Gradi have solidified their place as an authority on traditional Neapolitan pizza. 400 Gradi restaurants excel not only in serving up heavenly fare, but also in offering the warmth and hospitality that Italians are known and loved for.
The #400Gradi launch in its new Yarra Valley location goes in partnership with the Rochford Wines Yarra Valley estate. Their famous Napoletana and margherita aere always on the Yarra Valley menu that includes more signature pizzas, along with antipasto, pasta, sides and desserts. This is your chance to get the best Yarra Valley region can offer.
The opening hours are Monday from 11am—5pm, Friday through Saturday from 11am—10pm and Sunday from 11am—10pm.

my second attempt today to make home made pelmeni...
ingredients of the filling:
what ever happened in the plate smelled nice - evening dinner for Alex I guess...
now I am getting closer and closer to the most important part of today... as it started very very very early... stay tuned... SURPRISE!
and that's the last quark and sunflower rye sandwich for today:
my experiment last night making this kind of pelmeni / dumplings ( that are also known as won-tons I guess ) worked just fine:
filling: turkey mince, onions (red and white), milk, millet, no salt salt and black pepper;
served in a bowl with yogurt, spoon, fork, knife and nothingness
the millet addition gave it a soft inside texture - they just had to
be boiled 2 min more than the usual meat-only ones.
we finished 0200am last night with only two of us, Serezha, teas and two dogs left at our house :)
thanking Mrs Abela (Michelle) for the sweets (some of them were savaged with wee hope in mind from the complete extinction as I noticed two blond russian birds were pecking at my "photo props" very vigorously... as you can notice one 4th color - caramel it is - is lost from the picture forever and can not be restored even by a heaviest photoshop ) :) :)
@OlgaKirk @NadiaPleshkova, how can I forgive you for that?
sometimes instead of OMG! you can say OMS! [for Oh My Soup!] as it will be the right exclamation re-mark
enoki and porcini mushrooms soup
yes another one
please circle the right answer
6. I am puzzled
answer (do not look it up unless you know the answer!):
#4 baby oyster and porcini mushrooms with potato dumplings soup
please also note:
there is only one thing left from this soup: dirty dishes and this lousy photo which you can not eat no mater what...
ok, there are two things left but they are useless anyway...
someone's dinner tonight I guess:
garlic chicken mignons (include chicken and garlic butter)
roast caramelised onions
My fish soup :
sturgeon and rainbow trout ( both river fish )
two kinds of mushrooms ( enoki taki and pearl mushrooms)
vegetables : swedes , kohlrabi , white potatoes , carrots, green and red tomatoes , capsicum , greens ( coriander , onions, parsley , basil ) and assorted spices including whole black pepper .
Water and no salt salt and it’s done :)
or yes, you also need to wait till it is all boiled and switch the fre off.
UNMISSABLE FIRST DAY OF WINTER CELEBRATION.
my raspberry had a long journey while we drove on Peninsula and was broken but was still soooo sweet and fresh - not even one bad berry , they sell 500g for $15 - some juice at the bottom but honey taste was irresistible so I bought packs for the whole family - all right from the Mornington Peninsula Main Street Wednesday market - the guy was soooo generous - while Alex went to fetch some cash from the bank he gave me a tray of strawberries for free - all 6 kg of fresh and first class big berries - I do not know why people share with me always (?) - do I look like a priest may be? - Misha took the strawberries for his freezer and later for the blender.... but in case you are there - please say "hello" to them - I have to remember the name of the stall - but their stall is locate opposite to the Subway - I love their fruit and berries - they also sell superb persimmons (next time) - I always stop there <3
well my lunch today:
~ raspberries on the bottom of the wine glass topped with
~ Russian quark (Blue Bay Cheese deli , Frankston - direct from the cow) with honey ( direct from the bees and raisins - direct from the vine tree and
~ some light cream (unknown source) on the very very top....
with chamomile tea and Russian small ginger bread ( Blue Bay Cheese Deli, Frankston) on the side.
NO WORDS how good was it...
FLOURLESS (almost) BUT NOT NUTLESS
ingredients of today's morning cake
~ 1/2 cup brown sugar
~ 1 1/2 cup raw almond meal
~ 1/2 cup of wholemeal flour
~ 4 whole chicken made eggs please (not hand made but bum made)
~ 1 tbl spoon of lemon peel
~ dry plums to mix in
~ a handful of mixed (and crushed in smaller pieces) nuts to add to that mixture of everything and to top the cake a bit
mixture preparation time: 6 min (with watching the comedy battle - bit more though: 8 min https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GoE_ykSnGmk - sister Raya changes the huge size bulbs in the light houses - quite a dangerous job and i could not stop laughing :)) ; cooking: 45min; degrees: 170 C - that's enough with the numbers...
you will also need an oven and some gas or electricity for this cake. after it is ready take it out of the oven carefully ( and don't burn your hands as you only have two) then cool it down on the stone table (if you do not have a stone table please do not buy it just for the sake of the cake) only after the cake is cooled it will look cool and can be sliced easily.
enjoy with tea, coffee, lemon, russian honey privately collected by bees in the first place, then by bears from the bee's houses called bee-hiVes (which is completely wrong and should be rather bee-hiDes) just for you (all hand made or sounds more like paws made honey) anyway it was all about the cake - not nutless but almost flourless
I have not made them for a long time and seems I lost my skills a bit already : they did not turn out that even, the are rice paper rolls . They go for tonight’s dinner in variety of four: chicken and vegetarian - Misha got his half and he looked so happy.
unrefined sesame seed oil,
rice paper and
boiled warm water to soak the r.r. sheets
spicy sauerkraut for the extra zesty taste
for unvegetarians: chicken ( breast boiled ),
for vegetarians: tofu / two kind of mushrooms: enoki 'take' and baby king oyster 'take' (no shi-'take' but they can be used in any form too).
Time to make for 24 rolls 24 is 20 min.
Serve with black bean sauce or “soyso” . decorate with green yellow and red colors of flowers, - looks great? it tastes delish and healthy too <3
FLOURLESS LEMON CAKE
my flourless lemon cake turned out to be very healthy and very tasty (also very easy to make in no time - 15 min plus baking)
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup brown / raw sugar
-----> beaten up together to the state when it changes color to the lighter hue
-----> I am watching the comedy show in between (6 years old is teaching us how to make millions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD99WhUKJR4 ) - I think I am doing something wrong.... no,not with the eggs, with my life.... :)
1 1/2 cup of raw almond meal (skin on)
1 tbl spoon of fresh lemon zest (made on the spot)
-----> mix in together gently
4 egg whites
-----> beaten up to the consistency of a fluffy cloud ... ( my comedy show continues: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtd-9EieCVw how not to do it on TV )
-----> added gently to the above mixture
-----> place the mixture into the form
a hand full of goji berries and cranberries
-----> added up on the top of the cake
-----> pre-heat the over to 175 degrees C
-----> place the mixture into the over and bake for 45 min ( I watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0zLuC68xvk )
-----> happy ready time? not yet! the cake smells nice now and everyone is walking around your cake in circles. BUT make sure you put it up up up away from the cats, the dogs, the kinds and the husbands not because you want it all by yourself but because it needs to cool down before you take it out of the form and slice it up... and you slice it up... the comedy show - shut up now!
OMG!!!! OMG!!!!! just make sure you take the photos before it is all gone... going going.. going............ GONE!!!
now time for the photos of something from the past life (of the cake of course):
