Mandarin banana bread, gluten-free & vegan

It is the high season of mandarins. Yippee! I love them when they are ripe, juicy and sweet. However, I have the following problem with them: they are often sold in 2 kg packs or more, so I stuff myself with mandarins for a few days before I get bored. I usually end up having to choose…

Christmas special: Gluten-free & Vegan Gingerbread Cookies

I do not have a sweet tooth: if you ask me to choose between a piece of cake and a portion of fries, the portion of fries will always win. Except during Christmas holiday season: you’ll see me stuffing myself with chocolates and biscuits, something I usually never do. Is it the cold that drives…

So, I’m pretty limited to fresh produce shelves when I shop at the supermarket, and I usually embrace the DIY technique when I want to treat mself with something sweet: cakes, cookies,…

Chia, matcha & strawberry pudding

Those of you who know me well know I love Japan and Japanese cuisine. During my trip to the Land of the Rising Sun a few years ago, I have had the pleasure of rediscovering some European classic desserts with a Japanese twist. Thses original blends of textures and flavors were surprising sometimes but always beautiful, light…
