Chilli con carne meatballs by Jamie Oliver 15 minutes meals

At first glance you might think this is a traditional Mexican dish, but none of that is true. It's a combination of Mexican and Indian food. The garam masala gives the meatballs a unique and delicious taste. It just gives it a little bit of extra than the more 'standard' meatballs. As you can see I didn't exactly follow the recipe of Jmaie Oliver, because I've used rice i...

Wow doesn't this looks delicious! And I can tell you, that it tastes great! I saw Jamie Oliver making this dish in his program "15 minutes meals". So inspired by his show I decided to make this dish. Although Jamie can make it in 15 minutes, I needed more time to cook this meal, because I don't own a foodprocessor. After seeing his show a couple of times, I really think I should get one. As you can see in the picture...

Ever since I watched the episode of 'No Reservations' with David Chang of Momofuku, I've been obsessing about pulled pork. After some research I've found that this is a pretty common dish for bbq in the States. In Holland I have never been to a BBQ where they have prepared this dish. I think it would just take too long for the regular BBQ. Usually I just end up eating burned meat. So the secret of pulled pork is...

Croque Madame recipe by Rachel Khoo

The only decent cooking show we can watch in Holland is Saturday Kitchen on the BBC. You probably know the cook, James Martin, as the 'butter guy'. It's amazing how much butter this guy uses for a dish. He starts with butter and ends with butter. Besides his butter fetish, James Martin is a very charming cook and a good host of the program. The best part of Saturday Kitchen is they show parts of other great cooking sho...
