Dirt Quake

July 23, 2014 § Leave a comment

Right from it’s awesome start, this video makes you want to kick over your chopper and hammer it left over the flat-track track. It really takes off when the snowmobiles come out at 1:40. Gee, if only I could join the ‘kitchen sink’ category. As they put it theirselves: ‘Dirt Quake is for bikes no other race will have.’

This video starts hilariously, and finishes with a classic bike riding shot. Hang around for it.

Ottolenghi :: Plenty

Butterbeans :: Greenery


Yotham Ottolenghi is an Israeli born author and chef, with his restaurant named after him, who is based in London. His cooking style is firmly influenced by his Israeli background, but most certainly not limited to it. It’s fresh, it’s bold and it is loud. His “Jerusalem’ and “Plenty” are possibly the most exciting and inspiring recent cookbooks. And also, he is vegetarian, which strangely took a while for me to realise.

His style has greatly inspired me, and it fits in very fine with the Steroid Recipes I like to propel on this website. Legumes, fresh, green, nuts, berries, herbs, homecooked, simple, etcetera. This butterbeans recipe inspired by Yotham and is straight forward. Fry the beans, add spring onions at the end of the frying time. Off the fire add herbs (whatever you like), and some sumac is fine too. That’s it, you can choose some poached eggs on the side, fried carrots could go well too.

An other consequence I found of cooking like Ottolenghi is that I end up with some simple vegetable side dishes at the evening meal. Simple is the key word here. I am not certain whether that was intended by Yotham, but it just happened to me. This is a nice similarity with the new Nordic Diet, although I won’t be using this segue in this post.

Finally as a side, Yotham is a bit of a dishy lad too. Incidentally, also gay and a father. It’s worth reading his article in the Guardian in which he describes the long road gay and lesbian couples have to walk to become a family. A walk for which support should be given, when you can.
