Tunisian Brick à l’Oeuf

Tunisian Brick à l’Oeuf is a delicious dish filled with tuna, onions, capers, harissa, parsley and a luscious runny egg yolk, all wrapped up in a delicate pastry.

It’s time for the MENA (Middle Eastern & North African) Cooking Group. This monthly group has for goal to help us discover the culture and cuisine of the countries found in these parts of the world. The host of the month will choose two savory and a sweet dish from the country and the members pick one dish to make.

Kadhi Chawal (Yogurt Curry with Rice)

Looking for a new Indian dish to make at home? Try this Kadhi Chawal recipe, a very popular yogurt curry in India, served with rice and chickpea fritters.

It’s Food ‘n Flix time again! In this monthly group a host picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired. It can be any recipe you want. This month’s pick is hosted by Camilla of Culinary Adventures with Camilla, who suggested a really awesome foreign film from India called The Lunchbox! Indian cooking is not new to me but I found a jewel of a recipe that I have never tasted before, called Kadhi Chawal, or Yogurt Curry with Rice.

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!

If you suddenly have a vision of five Spice Girls dancing around in your head, you are not going crazy. The title of this blog is the name of their most popular song. And I thought it was quite a clever title for this post: the results of the CulturEatz survey where I asked you questions to know what you want out of my blog.

Thank you so much for filling out the survey in such large numbers about what you want to see here. I was humbled by how many of you took a little time out of your busy day to answer my questions. I heard a lot from my fellow bloggers and I got to meet some fans who do not normally leave a comment but have been reading me your years.

I am not going to cover every question here but I wanted to share a few results. I bet you are wondering if others answered the same way as you did? 🙂

Saint Valentine Red Recipe Round-up

Find inspiration with this romantic Saint Valentine recipe round-up to prepare a delicious and intimate evening at home with your loved one.

Here is my Saint Valentine recipe for success: both should leave work earlier than usual if are working (if not you have all day), and each can get 1 nice red wine bottles on the way home. Get home, change, relax, put something sexy on and have a glass of wine together. Then spend the early evening cooking a red meal together. Have more wine! Enjoy dinner together! Unless a recipe may suffer from it, romantic escapades during the meal prep are welcomed 🙂

Olivier Piffaudat: a chocolatier like no other!

The chocolatier Olivier Piffaudat is breaking the conventional chocolate mold with with his black garlic chocolate for Saint Valentine’s Day.

Have you ever heard the proverb “Birds of a feather flock together”? When I take a look around at my friends, I realize I truly live by this proverb. Most of my friends are not afraid of the weird, the unknow, the exotic. And one friend who truly brings this to mind is Olivier Piffaudat, a passionate chocolatier who really knows how to think outside the box. Or should I say outside the chocolate shell in his case.

When it comes to creating his flavors, he is a mad genius. You can count on one hand the more traditional flavors in his store. All the rest are very unusual. And I love how Olivier groups them: fruits, vegetables and cocktails. One chocolate is making its debut too, a very special one for Saint-Valentine’s day…one made with black garlic!

Montreal en Lumiere 2016

We are about half way through winter and here in Montreal that means one thing: the Montreal en Lumiere festival is just around the corner with loads of fun outdoor activities, shows and culinary treats.

Since we live in winter mode for so many months out of the year here in Montreal, we like to celebrate and even have a winter festival named Montreal en Lumiere. You will find all kinds of fun outdoor activities, many free, and lots of paid shows and food related events. But just an evening walking around the site is fun, just get a couple of snacks from the food stands and enjoy the lights! Just dress well to stay warm. Here is what this year’s Montreal en Lumiere has to offer, from February 18 to March 5 2016.
