Hugo, eat your heart out and Aperol Spritz, move over! We discovered a new cocktail this weekend and such a good one too! It’s the Tosso Rosso and here is how to make it. Easy does it. Read more…

Flammkuchen

I know, not everyone agrees, but yes, I find German a beautiful language. I love the many inventive words; one of my favorites is Feierabend, which signifies the time after work. Schöne Feierabend! You hear it a lot, sometimes already quite early in the afternoon. Celebrate this time of the day with a good beer […] Read more…

Sunny Sardine Sandwich

This cute little can of sardines has been sitting in my pantry for quite a while, but today I suddenly felt like opening it. It’s summer in DC, so it’s time for sunny Mediterranean lunches on the terrace, like this sandwich. I used baby kale, but it’s also nice with arugula. Just add some mayonnaise, […] Read more…

DC: Etto for antipasti & pizza

One of my favorite places for Italian food in The District is Etto. The tiny spot on hip 14th Street isn’t fancy, but the food is absolutely fabulous. Both the wood-fired pizzas and antipasti are made right behind the bar. Love that. That’s why I prefer to sit at the bar, so I can watch […] Read more…

Delicious.nl: Capesante al Forno

We feasted on the local prosecco, ate cicètti, black squid ink risotto, and these mouthwatering scallops (capesante), a Venetian specialty. We bought them whole in the shell at […] Read more…

Delicious.nl: Shaved Asparagus Salad with Orange

We are proud and happy to say that Kitchen Table Food is featured in this month’s delicious.., a beautiful Dutch food magazine. For their Italian issue the magazine asked us for an Italian fish recipe (which we will post tomorrow: capesante al forno), but we also wanted to add something green, fresh, and crunchy. Read more…

Little Rhubarb Crumble Bars

Let’s enjoy some more rhubarb. Last Sunday, my two daughters organized an English Tea Party in the yard. They couldn’t have picked a better day: the weather was more than beautiful, blossoms were all around us, and yes, it was mother’s day. They prepared us strawberries with cream, sandwiches with watercress, and delicate chocolate rounds. […] Read more…
