It has taken me a while just to get to D, so that you to those who have stuck by me.
The vote was very close between Djibouti and the Dominican Republic but Djibouti edged in front.
As a true democrat I went with the vote and finally cooked their natonal dish - Skoudekharis. Stew with Rice.
So the ingredients are above. I have to say a big thank you The Global Table Adventure, another blogger who has done this challenge and I used his recipe for the Skoudekharis with rice. I do enjoy cooking and this was a fun dish to cook.
Here are the ingredients:
So how it works is:
On to E next. There are a few more options this time, so keep your eyes peeled ready for the vote.
Thank you for supporting #shayansglobalcooking
The translation works as 'Strong Winds', after a week in early November I was lucky enough to not have to encounter such weather and came back with a mini tan.
Check out some pictures of my adventure in Fuerteventura and a great week with Laura and her dad.
I now have the holiday bug and I want to go away again.
Good food and good times, Sun, Sea and Sand were all we wanted and exactly what we got.
I think with the troubles in Egypt that Fuerteventura will now start seeing more tourists and already more friends are going. The building work is continuing and whilst the pound is strong, GO GO GO!
Think Kastner and Oven in the city and put in in North London. A bit more relaxed, more seating and a tad more expensive. Sable D'or entice you with the salads on display at the front, almost like Black Penny in Holborn and you see the vibrant colours and salads and you and your eyes are trapped.
Roasted butternut squash, roasted aubergine, quinoa, pomegranate, tarragon, chillies, shaved Parmesan and so much more. Seeing all this in front of you meshed into a delightful salad and you already feel happy and invigorated. On a hangover too, you know that your body and mind are grateful for the nutrition after the punishment you gave it last night.
French and North African flavours combine here to give you a delicate yet warm array of salads. Think of all the ingredients above and they throw them around and provide wonderful textures, exotic colours and hearty tastes.
Sable D'or knows its clientele well enough and the Crouch Enders and Muswell Hill'ers love the food here, relaxed vibes and chilled settings. The service can be a bit too relaxed so do not go here for quick food, just go for good food. Which is what we should do all the time.
