Madeira tomato



As usual during the holidays I decided to taste something new. While shopping in one of the supermarkets I immediately got interested in so called “English tomatoes”. I’ve never eaten such tomatoes’ before…

I decided to try them out….

My first impression… they look beautiful and don’t really look like tomatoes. They can easily substitute fruits. If you half them, the inner side looks a bit like maracuja (passion fruit)… black seeds, juicy. They taste something in between “normal” tomatoes and fruits. Sweet, sour-  I can’t decide.

Here’s my idea of eating this tomato… I decided to eat it in sweet version, together with natural yoghurt and honey.

Autumn leaf colour- colourful salad with ginger-chili dressing



It’s autumn. What I like the most about this time of the year is the colour of leaves. It’s so beautiful, changing, rich and powerful!

Inspired by nature, I present the following: colourful salad with ginger-chili dressing.

Ingredients (for 2 people):

–          1 small salad

–          ½ onion

–          Juice of 1 lemon

–          1tsp. sesame oil

–          1tbsp. soya sauce

–          2 carrots

–          1x1cm ginger

–          1 fresh red chili with ½ seeds

–          1tbsp. olive oil extra virgin

–          1tsp. honey


  1. Blend olive oil, sesame oil and soya sauce in a food processor.
  2. Add onion, ginger, chili and lemon juice. Cut and blend it with use of a food processor.
  3. Peel off the carrots and slice them. Cook in small amount of water unit tender-crisp to maximise flavour. Add honey and cook shortly.
  4. Decorate a platter with pre-washed salad. Top with carrots and sprinkle ginger-chili dressing over the top.

What do you think about my idea?

Enjoy your meal,
