Sausage Crostini with Cheese and Asparagus

The sausage crostini was my favorite breakfast when I was in high school. For this version I decided to add asparagus.


Lamb Kufte with Cabbage Salad and Ajvar

Some recipes have to stay locked in a chest. The chest to be buried under a tree on an abandoned island and the map to that place to be burned.


Burrata with Sundried Tomatoes and Fresh Basi

Cut the sun-dried tomatoes and basil to thin strips.

Place the burrata on a flat plate. Cut it into big bites. Arrange the strips of sun-dried tomatoes and basil on top. Add the pan-roasted pine nuts and drizzle with your most treasured extra virgin olive oil.

This dish calls for delicate treatment. I’ll suggest using the finest olive oil you have. What you will get will be a complete fest for your senses. It a great starter for ‘adore-me“ dinner. If you continue with Gnocchi with rabbit ragu and then finish with Saffron Panacotta you will be the star of the night. “Good cooks never lack friends”.


Yogurt Bread with Feta Cheese

Add spinach, mushrooms and pancetta for a different twist on this traditional Bulgarian bread.

Chicken Rolls with Gouda and Mushrooms

This recipe will change your family dinner tradition. Brussels sprouts look so delicious, kids may even be tempted to try … and love them.


3 Summer Dips

These are my favorite summer dips. Fresh tomatoes with aromatic basil, open fire grilled eggplant and fried red peppers, as I call them the holy trinity. Joy for your eyes and taste buds.


Grilled Veggies with Tomato Sauce

I love the smell in the kitchen when I roast vegetables. The air is layered with the sunny summer aromas; the basil explodes like fireworks with its freshness.
