#3 Mushroom omelette

leave a comment »

Once upon a time, yours truly had a job that enabled him time in the morning to prepare breakfast at a leisurely pace.

This was one of the results; fresh button mushrooms sauteed with a hint of chopped fresh thyme leaves, with a nice mix of farm fresh eggs and a splash of double cream.

Oh, how I long for those times again…

#1 Leo kan kook!

with 2 comments

Being rather drained of inspiration, I’ve decided to start a series of pictures of food related stuff I have made over the years.

And yes, Leo can really cook!

Here’s the first, and frankly, one of my favourites.

This is a photograph of me slicing some button mushrooms with one of my favourite knives, the Victorinox Fibrox 8″ Chef’s Knife.

This knife was one of the four knives that came together with the four cooking kits during my time in hotel school.

Twelve years on, I’ve given three of them away, and the remaining one is still going strong.

The Victorinox knife is one of two knives (the other being the WMF Spitzenklasse 8″ full tang knife) that I use frequently in my kitchen, mainly for cutting vegetables and fruits.

Knives that I use are limited in length by the space I have available in the kitchen (and unfortunately the kitchen is rather small, or rather, I have many appliances taking up counter space).
