Cooking Class


I have briefly mentioned my friend A who is a wizard in the kitchen (read here) and tonight, she was kind enough to teach me to cook something new (I think I have mentioned earlier how my cooking skills are very limited). As I 100 % loved tonight’s menu, I would like to share some of the recipes with you guys! The first recipe, we cooked together whilst A had already prepared the dessert earlier today. She was, however, kind enough to share the recipe with me as I loved it so much!

Onion soup

Portions: 4
Time-commitment required: 60 minutes

  • 6                  onions
  • 3-4 tbsp     wok oil OR 15 g butter
  • 1 tbsp          veg broth (bouillon) OR 1 stock cube
  • 15 g              flour (we used maizena)
  • 1 l                  water
  • 2.5 dl           white wine
  • 6-8 slices of bread (or equivalent amount of croutons)
  • Grated goat cheese
  1. Peel and cut the onions. Heat up oil in a kettle. Warm up your oven to 200C (390F).
  2. Add the cut onions and stir them on mid-heat for 15 minutes. You want the onions to be softened, golden-ish and translucent. While you are waiting for this to happen, you can already boil the water in another pan/kettle and mix it with the bouillon.
  3.  Add in the flour and mix, do not let it burn.
  4. Add in the broth-water mixture as well as white wine. Let the soup boil on low/mid-heat for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, shred the slices of bread and put them in the oven for 10 minutes to make them dry. If you have croutons, you are already sorted.
  5. Pour the soup in oven-proof bowls, cover the soup in the dried bread pieces and put grated goat cheese on the very top. Put the dishes in the oven for 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted and has turned nice and golden.
  6. Serve and enjoy!



Portions: 2
Time-commitment required: 30 min

  • 3 tbsp         milk
  • 3 tbsp         yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp          sugar or maple syrup
  • 3 tsp            chia seeds
  • Crushed pistachios and raspberries for decoration
  1. Mix milk, yoghurt and sugar in a bowl. Make sure the mixture is smooth.
  2. Add chia seeds and mix well.
  3. Divide the mixture into serving pots and put them in the fridge to set for 20 minutes.
  4. Take the pots out of the fridge, decorate with raspberries and pistachios.
  5. ENJOY!

(Alternatively, you can cool the mixture down in the bowl and afterwards separate it onto small plates for serving.)


I hope you will enjoy these recipes as much as I did! And if you try them, let me know how they turned out! 🙂
