We bring you a new kitchen, this time it is a classic touch for an older woman. It is a kitchen with low light, it shows in the photos, and with a few meters, located in the center of Madrid, but you will see that our interior designer, Ismael Blázquez, turns around. Ismael “It all started in summer of 2007, when his son decided to give him as a gift to completely renovate the house, it was when he asked his owner to postpone the return of his summer vacation, we are going to stay in Santander.
The result of the Challenge of Apples of SpeedCuchara.com is here! First of all, I want to apologize for the delay. And secondly, I ask you please that during a good little season you don't talk to me about apples. : D Finally we have received 150 recipes, which is a record of participation and if only for that reason, they have already been worth all the nights I have spent sailing, editing the photos and the book that will soon be released.
Do not tell me that it is not fun to see Mary wearing her apron and doing her poses !!! XD You don't know how much I laughed because it made me look forward to seeing her so happy. It's great. The photo shoot must have been the most fun, she with her boys, preparing these photos to send them to the blog.
What nerves! ... This biscuit kedada arose a month or more ago - I have no idea of time - in the FB group. You know that Vicky loves pastry and cookies, so one day he launched a proposal, to be all in Valencia - his homeland and place of residence - to learn how to decorate with icing ... I did not imagine that many Friends of the group were to move from different parts of Spain.
... And he does it this time with many familiar and some new hands, which makes me very happy. You have to see how much they give some anchovies. I invite you to see in detail each dish, creams, salads, timpani, toast, various pintxos ... I always say that the kitchen is infinite and that at least to me, I have much to learn.
Finally came the day!!!!! The result of the 3rd SpeedCuchara.com Challenge I have been nervous for many days thinking about how many of you would really participate and keep your word and I have to say that I feel very comforted with so much participation. I think that we all had a great time with these challenges, and that all your photos are improving little by little ... really this is a past and today more than ever we are very happy!
¡¡¡¡The 4th Challenge of Speed Spoon has arrived !!!!!!! From April 30 to May 17 As a crazy woman I was happy when after contacting Trevijano -a Navarra company- and explaining what the SpeedCuchara challenges were, they liked the idea and said they would be happy to participate.
Risotto Photography: Ana Sanchez We are here again with the result of the 4th Challenge. Thank you very much to all the participants ... Everyone has loved the risotto recipe and everyone who has done it with Trevijano has been satisfied. Great!!!! I have to admit that I have problems, I will tell you: I have several addictions, I confess!
I love these challenges, in the previous one we cooked 36 people. I never thought that so many would join in the kitchen to make the same recipe, and that so many were also part of the Facebook group "Cooking with Thermomix" where we propose everyone's participation with a monthly recipe. As we grow, we are already 3.
Surely if I tell you that the recipe is printed, you will not believe me, but what if the result is that bright in 30 different kitchens? , that's another thing, right ?. One afternoon it occurred to me that it would not be a bad idea to propose a recipe to cook it all at once. Vicky had seen and tried Maria Manuel Juanpere's recipe and said it was fantastic, so why not?
We started the challenge season with Emile Henry ... It could not be otherwise, it is my favorite stoneware and I know that of many of you: D I was very nervous with the return, I did not know whether to prepare sweet or savory, I did not know that you I would like more, but a few days ago I looked at the fruit bowl, picked some apples and I had it clear, like a vision, hehehehehe I am very excited these days, happy, I do not know the cause, there is really no news, but knowing that you are there It comforts me.
Hello everyone: Today we do not bring you a recipe as is evident,;). We have decided to tell you with photos what we have done this Saturday bridge. Vicky and I have met in Madrid, we both went to Alejandro Sanz's concert and tried to make the most of the day. We had a great time and we have gone from "stores".
Finally we launch a new CHALLENGE !!! You already know that we have worked a lot this season with the new blog, but now that Halloween has passed and that we will have more time we want to invite you all (bloggers and not bloggers) to participate with us to redo a joint book like the what we did with "The Great Book of Apples."
It was time to get to work, which lately I do not put homework! You know that from time to time in Speed Spoon we propose A CHALLENGE: That you cook for us a recipe to your liking and with all those dishes, we prepare a joint recipe book. We propose the theme or the ingredient and you put on your apron.
How long ago I bring you a kitchen at Speed spoon. Do you remember the section? I opened it when I was thinking about how to reform mine and with the nonsense, we discovered some fantastic kitchens. Today we are going to the north of Spain to know the cuisine of my friend Eider. She has made a reform in her apartment, and you already know that the kitchens are not huge, but you can do very cool things in small spaces like mine and surely in many cases, yours too.
Today I introduce you to Lola -the owner of this kitchen-, she is Spanish and lives with her husband in Copenhagen and today she will show us her fantastic kitchen, a place full of life, with very high ceilingssssssss, a wonderful extractor hood that does not have Finally, a table like before - with gum and everything - and a large window.
Finally, finally, FINNNNN! I thought I would never say that it is finished, but IT IS READY !!!! At this moment, I don't even know what to write to you, really, I have a smile from ear to ear ... I am very happy and grateful to everyone who has participated in this challenge so different from the previous ones. This is "our" book, that of 144 friends who have gotten into the kitchen with the purpose of Cooking with apples!
I hope you love this collective madness. Any aspiring George Clooney in the room? We are a few days away from celebrating Valentine's Day and this time we are going to roll it up but fine. In addition to the most loving recipes you can find on the blog, this year we want you to declare to your Clooney, let your imagination fly and lose a little shame.
New Year New Life. Today is my birthday. The 40s are an important change. Actually the number is the least because the age has one inside and the head determines that "century we are" and I have a few less, hehehehe, but yes, I start the quarantine and gives a bit of vertigo especially for what that comes later - the 50s, the 60s ... - The youth passes quickly so it is necessary to enjoy it to the fullest but as my mother said “with a head” so no one will let me go.
I don't know where to start today! Perhaps it is best to tell you the story by the end: “We have won the Bitácoras Award for Best Gastronomic Blog 2016. Honestly, I dodge these kinds of things a lot and I will say that I have not believed much in them either. The nomination this time came to us by surprise, driven only by all of you.
