This week, which may be my last #ThatTranslatorCanCook post for a while (see explanation below), so I wanted to go out with a bang. I’ve tried to make macarons in the past and failed, so when I found a recipe that claimed to be ‘unfailable’, I jumped at the chance to try them. My attemptContinue reading “#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Twenty: Macarons”

#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Nineteen: Knepfle
I finally decided to get back into #ThatTranslatorCanCook. Work has calmed down after an initial rush, the stockpiling has stopped and we have a regular online food shopping slot, so I figured I had the time and resources to broaden my culinary horizons again and tickle my translator’s tastebuds! So I headed to Marmiton inContinue reading “#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Nineteen: Knepfle”
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Seventeen: Tarte Tatin
This week, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and make the French classic: Tarte Tatin! I have to admit, although the recipe claimed to be ‘quick and easy’, I struggled to make the caramel! Other than that, the translation process and overall cooking was fairly straightforward.
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Sixteen: Coq au vin
This week, as my husband was visiting France anyway, I decided to opt for a very traditional French recipe: coq au vin! Read on to find out about a few minor translation challenges and the obstacles I face cooking a cockerel!
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Fifteen: Steak Tartare
This week, despite the inclement weather, thanks to Storm Ciara, I decided to try something simple, refreshing and tasty.
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Thirteen: Victoria Sponge Cake
This week I thought I’d try something a little different for #ThatTranslatorCanCook and opted for a traditionally British recipe but in French! I thought it might be interesting to see how the recipe differs from a British version of the same recipe.
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Twelve: Galette des Rois
This week, I decided to tackle a traditional French new year’s cake. Yes, I realise I’m a little late to the game (Hannah Lawrence made hers weeks ago…), but I was still in the festive mood and fancied something seasonal!
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Eleven: Stoemp
Did you guess from my post last week what I chose for this week? Well…I chose stoemp! Wikipedia defines this is as ‘the richer Brussels variant of the stamppot dish in the cuisine of Belgium and the Netherlands’. Let’s dive into the translation!
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Ten: Turkey Blanquette
This week I actually decided to tackle two recipes at once, because they seemed like they would pair well together. To find out what the second recipe is, you’ll have to wait for next week’s blog (once it’s up, I’ll link it here). But firstly, blanquette de dinde…
#ThatTranslatorCanCook Week Nine: German Christmas Biscuits
Happy New Year! I know this is a little late, although we still are in the festive period (just!), but for this week, I decided to give myself an extra challenge and pick a German recipe: German Christmas Biscuits or Lebkuchen!
