Beef Carpaccio


We were having a little celebration, (hence the Roederer Champagne) at home and wanted a simple but impressive starter.

Beef carpaccio barely registers as cooking, but tastes oh so divine. I love the contrasting flavours and textures of the ultra thin bashed fillet steak just slightly cooked by the lime juice and topped with salty parmesan and peppery rocket leaves.

I asked the butcher to prepare the fillets for me, saving me the bulk of work!

Enjoy with a decent crusty loaf or home made bread.

How to Make Pasta


Pasta is so delicious when you take the time to make it fresh.

Unlike bread, it is ready in 20-30 minutes.

Whether to make lasagne, spaghetti or ravioli, for instance, the extra oomph in flavour from homemade pasta never fails to impress guests.

Do stick with the fork method I describe. I tried a couple of times and failed, as I had no patience. The reward in using this method, is that you keep your hands clean!

Investing in a pasta machine really is imperative in order to achieve the best results.

After a couple of attempts, this is really quite easy. At the beginning, however, a second pair of hands is advisable when using the pasta machine!
