CAPITAL KITCHEN WITH JULIA AND STEPHANIE NEW
Dear Yulya (Chadstone Laser, Skin & Wellness Clinic Melbourne) thank you so much for yesterday breakfast with Stephanie (she is a very special girl as i saw her eyes - it's a tropical ocean). I really treasure our moments together. I feel good next to you and I always learn something new... I thought: this breakfast is impossible to repeat and I tried with my home-made version of it - today - not even close... you see what you have done to me? :) At Capital Kitchen - Stephanie had banana bread soft on the inside with yummy crispy crust - it goes with maple mascarpone on the side; Julia and I had avocado with St Maure goats cheese, poached eggs on on sourdough rye toast and rocket salad (if i am not mistaken) - some amazing kitchen there... and there is only one best place for coffees at Chadstone: Jasper Coffee Caffeine Dealers. Julia was our Club's very supportive sponsor many times in the past but still she throws in one or two very nice specials and giveaways for our Club from time to time... I am very grateful for Julia's generosity...

this home made spread I called WE ARE ORCHIDS TOO
~need a couple of slices of grilled dark russian rye bread (borodinski type) ~for spread blend: raw oyster mushrooms olive oil 1 small hot chili ricotta cheese no salt salt (herbs) ~decorated with young garlic sprouts and purple and white violets (that look like miniature orchids... - actually it's them, the violets who told me that they are very similar to chickens who are in reality some kind of ancient dinosaurs (watch their feet covered with scales!) that in order to keep warm hid in dens and holes and grew out feathers during the ice age... when the global weather changed to a warmer climate chickens started living in trees - this is when some very smart humans noticed them and started collecting their eggs that were falling down from trees like mangoes and coconuts... at this point Sergey will tell me that I smoked too much of VEDAS and started making my own stories... and he will be right ... and we are talking about open sandwiches anyway)
I continue experimenting with pestos/spreads... My today's Turkish coffee snack: again - the same yesterday's bread: ancient grains organic rye bread with ashur roasted seeds grill toasted topped with home made almond / back yard continental parsley /garlic young shoots / capsicum and parmesan cheese (all blended into a knife spread acceptable paste) plus a fine layer of anchovy creama to top it up the other piece of bread is topped up with organic quark (the quark cow says: "prepared with herbs and spices"): dill, onion, garlic, bell peppers, chilli flakes all decorated with white azalea flowers and burgundy flowers of european mint i called this dish: SHALL WE SUMMER CYPRUS AGAIN?
“something different” idea - turned into - a quickie lunchy-munchy today: ancient grains organic rye bread with ashur roasted seeds grill toasted topped with home made almond / back yard garden continental parsley /chives plus 2 tea spoons of simon johnson dill mustard mayo pesto (all blended into a knife spread acceptable paste) and a fine layer of anchovy creama to top it up healthy? perhaps (take away the anchovy but they too participated in a very delicate way – please admit) let's call it - NIKOSIA AT MIDNIGHT because it is simply mind blowing… had it with Turkish coffee.which is of course politically incorrect considering Cyprus but i tried to do it in a friendly way photo results:
