The Truffle Table, Denver CO

If you want to have a delightful tasty experience with cheese, wine and cured meat visit The Truffle Table!

We ordered 5 cheeses and 5 meats and a bottle of Pinot noir.

They open at 4pm on Saturdays. We went there for a snack time after a long bike ride through Denver. We had a fabulous time! Be prepared to see a huge wheel of cheese cut during your time there! Really impressive!

Kale at home

I love Kale and the good thing is: it’s good for you!

I got inspired by the recipe in the smitten cookbook that features kale and cranberries and pecan. I didn’t have a lot of pecan, but a ton of almonds. I roasted them in the oven at 375f.

I also wanted to use some sun dried tomatoes I had. Finally I had Parmesan cheese, shaved. Oh ….and also a sprinkle of fresh rosemary.

The key is to let you salad air in the dressing before serving! Delicious!

Dressing: olive oil 3tbsp, 1tbsp ginger lemon vinegar, salt, pepper.

Yummy!

An evening in Spain: Gazpacho

One afternoon last week, I wanted something cold and flavorful to eat! I was dreaming of Gazpacho. On my way home I stopped by a store and bought tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, onions, garlic, herbs… Once home I chopped everything in tiny pieces and let in sit in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then drained the liquid out through my colander and add pieces of bread to the liquid. Then I added them to the veggies and mixed all together with my mixer. Once mixed I put it in the fridge again and served it very cold! Delicious! We were in Spain for the evening 🙂
