Hi Guys! Welcome to my brand new category LAX WITH...This one is all about cooking and drinking with lovers & friends. For a super kickoff I’ve cooked for Tara Dougans in the magnificent Gorki Apartments while I was staying in Berlin over the weekend. Even though it's located in the heart of Berlin Mitte, it's a great escape for retreat and relaxation.
Tara is a Berlin-based illustrator and digital artist from Canada. I got to know her when we both lived in Amsterdam. She is mad talented, she did collaborations with Showstudio, Nowness and many other great names. She is a total babe and I’m very happy to have her as a good friend.
Me & my buddy hubby Fabian Hart, who was traveling with me, decided to serve her a dish, that makes her go banana. We created a vegan curry based on buckwheat, carrots (or "Möhren" as we name them in Germany) and tofu. We called our creation Möhriah Currey, clearly influenced by writing magician & Dreamlover Fabian Hart.
The Recipe goes like this: Cook the buckwheat, fry it afterwards and deglaze it with banana juice.
Oh yeah that’s right I said banana. Add shallots, garlic, lime juice, curry powder, smoked tofu, chili and fresh bananas. For even more freshness we put a crispy carrot tatar flavored with dill on top. Our choice of final finishing were crushed peanuts. Sounds like Banana Land, righty? It was truly good, sweet, but still savory. You have to try it.
Do not forget to top it with glitter, otherwise you won’t make it through the rain, if not don’t worry you always will be my baby, honey. Thank god I found you and now touch my body, cause I’m that chick tonight.
