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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ . 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…

Sausage and spinach spaghetti

Another very “green” day in the BUX office. But I did promise meat and for sure the Buxers did get it. With green & red peppers instead of the sausage the vegetarian option was created, so that I kept all of these food lovers happy. -enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 300g spaghetti (or other pasta) 1…

Brisket ragรน with mushrooms and parmesan mash

Today at BUX HQ we welcomed some visitors from France, so we tried to make them feel at home with some nice food. The ragรน could of stayed in the oven for just a little bit longer, but the taste was beautiful and the softness almost there. All thumbs went up for the Parmesan mash….

Italian-style tomato, chicken and bread soup

I love this soup! It’s my new favorite! Okay, it takes a little time to make, but the result is stunning. Nothing is better then homemade chicken stock. It beats the instant stock cubes by far. Take your time with this recipe. I promise you, it’s a real treat. We might have slightly overdone it…

Spicy Shawarma Chicken Wrap Recipe

“Gordon going easy”. But don’t underestimate the taste, Shawarma all over! The cooking instructions are for two people but don’t hesitate to make this dish for more. My heads were counted at 30 today. I did cook the tortilla wraps one by one in the frying pan, just because I do think they taste better…

Crushed cherry tomato and ricotta bruschetta

We looooove bruschetta. The ricotta en the grated lemon rind give a little twist to the original version, very nice indeed. Buy some nice bread like focaccia with pesto to go with it. -enjoy- Pssst, we peeped some bocconcini between the tomatoes too! INGREDIENTS (serves 4) 200g yellow teardrop tomatoes 1 x 250g punnet cherry…

Creamy fettuccine with prosciutto

A quick pasta I call this. Most of the time you will have all these ingredients already in your fridge at home. Of course you can adapt the recipe a little bit. Replace the prosciutto by some bacon or chicken. Or for the vegetarians with broccoli. Serving warm is a must! – enjoy- INGREDIENTS (serves…

Cardamom and coconut chicken skewer

We had a little drama going on in the BUX kitchen today. We lost the chicken! To make a long story short, the chicken wasn’t delivered yesterday. Fortunately, the problem was solved in a jiffy, although lunch was delayed by half an hour and we had to replace the roti by a roll. Nevertheless, lunch…
