A little update to let y'all sexy bitches know I'm alive and kicking since rumors were spreading that I was hit by a truck filled with gluten and sugar. Truth is, work needs time, and time needs me, so blogging just hasn't been my no.1 priority lately.
But, today my fingers started to feel itchy so that's always my natural que to do some blogging :D
Yesterdays event for 'Bluebirds' went smoooooohooooooth (no idea why I type it like this but hey, who cares :P)
For the ones who don't know what 'Bluebirds' is, it's a new yoga school situated in the beautiful Amsterdam East.
Somehow I always tend to forget to take pictures when I'm doing events... So I can only please you with a photo I took of the starter from the 3 course menu I created.
A refreshing cucumber salad with a tangy feta mousse, wild peas, roasted nuts, a drizzle of lemon vinaigrette and crumbled feta. Just so you know, I'm talking about real feta here, which is made out of sheep milk, not that fake shit which is called white cheese and mistaken a lot for feta.
Thanks to the amazingly talented dj Emanuelle Vos who was one of the lucky few invited for this exclusive lunch at 'Bluebirds' I could add 2 more pictures to this blogpost as she was kind enough to email them to me. This stunning beauty is vegan (check out her instagram The Vegan Hotline) and since I have no problems with making vegan dishes I of course adjusted the recipe to her likings.
Look! She also took a great shot of the main dish I created!
Spiced up black lentils, caramelized carrots with a sesame-ginger dressing, pomegranate and mini shiso leaves! This last ingredient is one of my all time favorite herbs to use. The taste is so unique and intense, it just uplifts any vegetable dish if you'd ask me!
Well enough typing for today, I have to get back to work, create new dishes and make more people happy with my food!

If you have any requests for me to use a certain product or dish you want me to give The Cookteaser Make-over, please contact me and I'll try to make it happen!
I love to work with new ingredients and I see it as a great challenge to make it a delish dish!
