Sizzling steak stir-fry & Gorgeous gado-gado

Make the gado-gado salad first, but do leave the dressing on the side for the time being. I had to prepare the steak as a whole, just because of the amount of people I cook for. But by all means do follow this recipe below and just leave the noodles out if you wish to…

Ingredients (serves 4) 3 cloves of garlic 50 g mature Cheddar cheese 50 g stale bread 2 teaspoons dried oregano olive oil 4 higher-welfare sausages 1 pinch of dried chilli flakes 3 x 400 g tins of chopped tomatoes 400 g…

Spinach and ricotta cannelloni

I did manage to make  this recipe for 35 people, but opted for the lasagne version instead of cannelloni. Rolling Cannelloni is far to time consuming for so many people, I thought. But by all means, try it at home when you are with 4-6 persons. I will definitely make this at home for my…

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 insanity burger

A Burger Ball in the BUX kitchen. We love a bit of meat. This recipe is truly insane yummy. With potato wedges on the side, we rocked the place together without knives and forks. 🙂 -enjoy too-   Ingredients (serves 4) 800 g minced chuck steak olive oil 1 large red onion 1 splash of…

Chocolate fruit and nut crisp

No Nuts! Just Fruit! We made a dark chocolate and a milk chocolate one, both delicious. Make sure you buy good quality chocolate, that absolutely makes this crisp. And don’t forget the sea salt flakes 😉 -enjoy- Serves 10 hazelnuts 100g, shelled dark chocolate 400g mixed crystallised fruits – pears, citron, clementines 400g in total…

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…

Red Prawn and Pineapple Curry

Hearing or seeing the word pineapple always makes me think of party and sunshine, don’t ask me why! This dish was meant to be made with the mango fruit, but for some reason our delivery of mango’s went wrong. Lucky enough we had plenty supply of pineapple. The curry was deliciously spicy and sweet. My…

Not So Red Velvet Cupcakes

Thursday Dessert Day! Haha, Nigella says it herself in the Method, the color of the cupcakes turn out not to be so red after all! But they are velvet, for sure. We had some little meringue toppings left so that’s what we opted for, instead of chocolate sprinkles or red sugar. They taste delicious. I…
