"Comfort food without feeling guilty."

3 eggplants, 1 onion, 1 garlic, 800ml passata, Splash of red wine (For extra spicy: sambal), 2 scoops of mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, Fresh herbs: basil, thyme, rosemary, oregano, Olive oil, Pepper and salt
Cut the aubergines into slices and place them on a plate and sprinkle them with salt. Chop the onion and garlic and cook in a pot with some olive oil. Add a teaspoon of sambal, stir well and let it cook briefly. Add a splash of red wine and let the alcohol evaporate. Then add the passata. Add some fresh herbs and season well with salt and pepper. Let the sauce simmer for a while. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees. Put a pan on the stove and add a generous splash of olive oil. Place the aubergine slices in the pan and fry them on both sides until all the olive oil has been absorbed. Do this several times and always fry them in a bottom of olive oil. Put all the fried aubergine slices aside. Take a casserole and start with a layer of tomato sauce. Place some of the aubergine slices on top and some cubes of mozzarella. Again add some tomato sauce and grate a lot of Parmesan cheese over it. Do these steps again until you finish with tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese on top. Bake in the oven for about 40 minutes.

"My favourite dish in Springtime is my Creamy risotto with fresh greens or better known in Italy as the simple dish Risi e bisi."
The Risi e Bisi of our Front Desk & Venue Officer, Amelien:
Mix 1 tbs of butter with 2 tbs of olive oil. Fry 2 shallots finely chopped until they are gold coloured and add risotto rice (Arborio / Carnaroli ). Let simmer with the shallots for 2 minutes on medium heat and add a cup of dry white wine (make sure the wine is completely evaporated until you add vegetable stock). Add the vegetable stock bit by bit. When the rice has been cooking for 10 minutes add green peas and roughly chopped green asparagus (keep adding stock if necessary). When cooked for 20 minutes the rice should be more or less tender. Add freshly chopped herbs (your choice) such as basil, marjoram, thyme, and add 1 tbls of butter and finely grated parmigiano and lemon zest (optional). Turn off the stove and let it stand for a couple of minutes.
