Do you know texturised soya?

Texturised soya is a derivative of the soya plant, it is used in cooking as a meat substitute for vegetarians and has a high nutritional value due to its high protein content.

It is usually a regular in our kitchen as an alternative option to meat, although today we could also find it as an accompaniment to pasta, turkey and battered fish.

We could also choose rice noodles and vegetables, lots of options!

 

  

Soirée Ethiopienne

Today we had a visit from an Ethiopian chef!  We were lucky to be able to discover new cultures through gastronomy, the menu presented all kinds of specialties. As a major discovery, we met the Injera, a large sourdough flatbread made of teff flour, a discovery that has put our senses to the test.

Our dinning hall has been transformed, once again, into a little corner of Ethiopia making us feel the food much more.

Many thanks to the kitchen team and all the guest chefs!

“طعام جيّد” means good food 🇸🇾

Today our chef Hmaidi has invited us to get to know his culture, the Syrian culture. Today’s international dinner was a success, the dining room was decorated with Arabic music in the background and Syrian delicacies were served.

One of the stars of today’s meal was, among other things, the Arab tea.

Rice is cooked with aromatic spices, and pieces of chicken with almonds and toasted pine nuts are placed on top. The kebab (skewered meat, usually chicken or lamb) is cooked on a barbecue. Another dish is kafta, which is prepared with minced lamb, onion, and spices, topped with a parsley salad, hummus (chickpeas and sesame), baba ganush (smoked aubergine), and the refreshing keshek (yoghurt, cucumber, mint, garlic, and oil).

Semolina cake, It is prepared by adding butter-toasted semolina into boiling water that is mixed with sugar and sometimes cinnamon pieces. It is then served with a variaty of toppings including but not limited to white cheese, cinnamon powder and pistachios.

Tough decisions

On one side, a burger with a choice of sauces and a side of Texas-style fries, on the other side, citrus-marinated salmon with wedge fries.

Never has a decision been so difficult, but the good news is that soon our chefs will bring us another delicious choice.

Another of our protagonists today is Feta cheese, we love to add it to our salads, creating a wonderful Mediterranean salad with oil and balsamic vinegar.

 

And for dessert a good sweet, our famous apple cake.
