Mixed berry filo millefeuille

Baking the filo millefeuille was easier then I thought it would be. As I had to make dessert for many, a made a huge one instead of cutting it all in rectangles. The mascarpone with the yoghurt, double cream, lemon and icing sugar is just divine. Instead of the pistachios we used shaved almonds ;-),…

Salmon en croute / potato gratin / french bean salad

Salmon en croute, Asya Kapitonova ‘s absolute favorite, so I always love to make it for my BUX colleagues. Together with a potato gratin and a french bean salad, yum. Try this at home and let me know what you think. Good old Jamie O nailed it again! -enjoy- Potato gratin Ingredients (serves 8) 1…

Next-level steak & onion sandwich

A lot of the Buxters are always very happy when this dish is served for lunch. Instead of white onions I like to use the red ones and I do sprinkle a bit of balsamic vinegar over them before they go into the oven. Because of the quantities we cook for, it’s easier to use…

Croquembouche

Dulce de leche filling & chocolate sauce This Croquembouche didn’t really work out the way it was planned. As one of my colleagues said: a D.I.Y. dessert! As my buns turned out fine, the dulce de leche was not what it supposed to be like. I will definitely try this another time, and boil the…

Beef & vegetable stir-fry

For BUX lunch this dish was a challenge as a large wok didn’t work for me with so many people. I did manage to create a hopefully as tasty stir-fry as the recipe below which serves 4 people instead of 40! I did achieve this with two large cooking pans and with working in batches….

Smoky veggie chilli

Smoky veggie chilli – Sweet gem & cheesy jacket spuds What can I say? This is just very good cold weather grub! The BUXters where not very much impressed I did cook them a vegetarian meal for the second day in a row, but with this comforting dish I didn’t hear a peep out of…

Spinach lasagne

This is such a simple but very delicious recipe. I love it! Sometimes I do cheat with the white sauce and buy it from a very good brand in a package. Though, nothing beats the real stuff. Great dish to cook for many, the vegetarians would appreciate it very much! -enjoy- Ingredients (serves 6) 70…
