Not just “a chocolate mousse”

It took a little time to set, but o boy, when it was ready to be eaten… colleagues were elbowing each other over the chocolate mouse bowl to fill their little cups till the brim and top it up with raspberries. Another Thursday dessert day feast in the BUX kitchen. INGREDIENTS (Serves 2) 200g dark…

OMG! Irish Cream Tiramisu

Not being funny, but this is the Tiramisu of the Tiramisu’s. The Queen of dessert. The most heavenly taste ever. Baileys is the trick, and of course the Sabayone or Zabaglione as the Italians say. (the eggyolks with the sugar and the booze). Do try this at home. You owe it to yourself 😉 -enjoy-…

Jamie’s sweet & sour chicken

Instead of the chicken thighs, skin on and bone in, we used chicken thigh fillets. Just because in our BUX kitchen we have to keep the cooking method a little bit more simple, while cooking 35 people 😉 . This recipe is gorgeous. I will definitely make this at home for my family and will…

Simple beef stew

This is a fantastic dish full of good stuff. The Buxers couldn’t get enough of it, they were glad plenty was left for Friday’s lay-back day. The potato mash was top with cheese and been put under the grill for a little while, so crunchy on top. Mmm. The vegetarian version without the meat was…

Parsnip and caramelised onion soup

“A forgotten vegetable”, as one of my colleagues called the parsnip. Much more often used in England then the Netherlands I would say. I love roasted parsnips. The next time I will try to roast them first together with the onions. I will let you know how that worked out. This is a beautiful silky…
