As fall approaches heavily in Brittany, here is a new recipe for a cake ideal to eat on chilly Sunday afternoons.
Little photo slide show of pictures I made at my visit of the Mont Saint Michel last week. In late summer at the evening is one of the best times to visit le Mont as the tourists are already gone, the main street is quiet and the light is just beautiful. Enjoy
As an interested reader of this blog you may already have found out that I prefer cooking delicious yet relatively quick and easy recipes. Therefore, I would like to share my recipe for plum cake today. It does not for for plums only but for many other fruit. So, you could easily turn it into a cherry cake for example.
Being in Paris for the This Week in Startups Paris Meetup I took the chance and visited the Louvre on the day after the event. Always a treat :).
In summer time you can see some pretty interesting ships coming to Saint Malo. This one here is one of the most futuristic ones. It is the “Skat”, one of the biggest private yachts on the globe and it is owned by Charles Simonyi former Chief Architect of Microsoft. I saw the “Skat” already last year in Saint Malo but there it laid in the smaller harbor area. This year it has a good place directly at the city walls.[...]
Here for once is a meat dish: stewed lamb with vegetables. Best is to take meat from the leg or joint. These are not the most expensive parts and by the relatively long stewing they become nice and tender yet stay juicy!

Another very easy to cook dish. This creamy prawn curry and tomato coriander salad is a perfect dish for the summer time as it is light, fresh and very tasty.
Tandoori chicken is really one of THE classics when people think of Indian cuisine and it’s also one of my favourite chicken dishes. The beauty of this recipe is of course the marinade but it’s relatively easy to prepare not so so time consuming either.
Another one on my all time classic list: Pasta Bolognese or in this case a meat sauce as it is not 100% after the original recipe. Great dish for busy people as it is quick to prepare and can slowly cook for hours on a low flame. This way you can still work in the evenings and will have a great dish ready when you finish your work.
