Recipe: chicken liver patè

I’m cooking chicken liver pate for tonight’s dinner, quick and easy it’s great on some seed crackers or – like I do – just scooped with a spoon. Liver is one of the most nutrient dense food, and chicken liver has a much milder flavour than beef or pork, also it usually costs next to nothing… The recipe has approximate quantities, it doesn’t really matter for the final result. Ingredients: – onions – a generous amount of butter – chicken livers – capers – a few salted anchovies – Marsala fine wine or brandy if you mind the carbs (Cognac if you can afford it) – salt & pepper Melt… Read More

Recipe: smashed avocado on toast with smoked salmon and egg yolk

One of the things that’s missed on a low carb diet is the crunch. That beautiful texture that we love is mostly obtained with starches, but you can still recreate something similar.   Pork crackling is obviously the first thing that comes to mind, and I admit being a little addicted to that stuff, together with chicharrones and anything that involves pork skin.   The one in the picture is made very simply with a sandwich press, just lay down the pork skin salted on both sides, switch the press on and in about 30 minutes you’ll have the best and easiest crackling of your life.   The hardest problem… Read More
