FAT PAO - Pão de Queijo

Last Sunday was another edition of the Sunday Market in Amsterdam (every first Sunday of the month) and I was there with FAT PAO and shared a stall with Saporiti Wines (www.saporitiwines.nl). This was the first test to see whether people would like Pão de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Breads), so I woke up at 5:30 AM and made more than 200 Pão de Queijo!

I was so surprised by all the positive feedback and even 3 Brazilians said that it tasted how it should be! It was sold out within 3 hours and I still had 3 hours to go!

Braised pork belly buns

I have been craving for braised pork belly for ages. All these pictures on Instagram made me hungry, but could not find a place that sell these pork belly buns. So, what do you do then? You make your own! The end result is a very soft and not too sweet chunks of pork belly! 

- 2 pounds pork belly 
- 1 cup water
- 1/2 cup mirin (sweet rice wine)
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 big slice of ginger
- 3 gloves of garlic 
- 3 tbs soy sauce 

Cut the pork belly in chunks of about 4 cm. Put the water, mirin and sugar in a pan, stir and add the pork belly and cover it with a lid. When it starts to simmer, add the ginger and garlic and cook it on low heat for 1 hour. 

After 1 hour, add 3 tbsp of soy sauce and cook for another hour, add water if needed, the pork belly does not need to be covered in water, just about 0,5 cm above the water is enough. 

I also turned the pork belly in between so it's even coloured on all sides. Enjoy!

Brazilian Cheese Bread & Bacon

Everything tastes better with bacon right? Cheese goes very well with bacon, so I added bacon to these chewy Brazilian Cheese Breads! They are gluten free too!

Where is the mushroom?

My made-from-scratch bun with a mushroom burger, melted mozzarella and yoghurt garlic sauce. I LOVE VEGGIES!

Because... PANCAKES

Because a mint leaf is too mainstream, I use mint chocolate instead. ;)

Pancake Burger 2.0

Pancake Burger 2.0. I made some adjustments to the original version and did some research and science to come to this version . The burger is served between 2 thick American pancakes, home ground beef, mozzarella, cheddar, caramelised red onions and topped it off with bacon.

Let me know what you think, would you eat it? :)
