Hearts of Palm Pie Hearts of Palm Pie

This morning I knew what I was going to do for lunch or dinner. I opened the book of Tatiana Cardoso and searched for Torta de Palmito. I was sure the recipe should be there as I tried Hearts of Palm Pie at Tatiana´s restaurant. The creamy consistence of pie with its delicate sourness from hearts of palm goes so well together.  I modified the recipe and added some more tomatoes and sambal as I like to have it little spicy ;). I would say that it is pretty easy to make and you can serve it both warm and cold. This morning session was a great combination of baking and learning new words in Portuguese as the recipe was in Portuguese.  
I am so happy to be able to understand so much, maybe because it is a topic which interests me. 

Hearts of Palm Pie

Dough Ingredients:

2 dl whole wheat flour
2 dl all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
70 g unsalted butter at room temperature
Some water if needed

Filling Ingredients:

3 tablespoons of olive oil
1,5 large onion, finely chopped
2 plum tomatoes, without seeds and finely chopped
2 cans  hearts-of-palm, cut in 2 cm rings
10-15 green olives, cut  in halves
1 tsp sambal
1/2  tsp pink pepper, crushed and some whole for decoration

2 dl double cream
1/2 tsp salt or to taste
1/2 tsp freshly grounded pepper
1 dl parsley, finely chopped

Dough:
 
Place butter, all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour and salt in bowl and mix well. You might add some water just to get the dough smooth. On a flat, floured surface, roll the dough with a rolling pin until you get a circle about 40 cm in diameter.  Cover the bottom of a 25 cm in diameter baking deep dish, make sure that the sides of the dish are well covered too. Set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.  Add hearts of palm and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes and green olives. Season with rose pepper, sambal and salt. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes. At the end add flour, stir well and let it cook for one more minute.

Creamy Sauce:

Mix all ingredients for the creamy sauce.

Pre-heat oven to 180 C.

Chef André Magalhães has created Taberna da Rua das Flores a tiny little tavern serving some of the most inspiring and creative cooking in Lisbon. I had the opportunity to work there for two weeks with his great staff and learned more than that I could ever imagine. Together with Chef Bruno I assisted in preparation of more than 50 dishes, asked 1000 questions, learned new flavors and cooking methods as well as I made lots of notes. My journey with Portuguese food had already started in Brazil, São Paulo. I was always dreaming about coming to Portugal and to learn more. Thank you Chef André for giving me that opportunity! Thank you Chef Bruno for your support and all fantastic staff of Taberna da Rua das Flores for such a warm welcome! I admire all of you for your hard and dedicated work and I understand why there is always a queue outside the door to the Taberna.

August 9, 2013

Two weeks ago I moved to Brazil, Sao Paulo ... a great city that you can compare to New York. I really looked forward to move here to explore Brazil, to meet lovely and friendly Brazilian people and of course to explore Brazilian food!!! Give me some time and I will introduce you to the Brazilian food!!!
Grossery shopping is a really nice advanture here... it takes just too much time as I am a bit confused with all new things and with the great choice of vegetables, fruits and meat. Yesterday I discoverd a new shop just a few streets from my flat with vegetables and fruits ... I could not resist figs ... so mature, simple and deliciouse!!! I prepared a simple salad with figs, white cheese rolled in oregano and salami served with lemon and honey dressing.

Od dwóch tygodni mieszkam w Sao Paulo, miasta tętniącego życiem ... bardzo przypominające Nowy York. Czekałam na tą przeprowadzkę z niecierpliwością ... na możliwość lepszego poznania Brazylii, spotkanie jej cudownych i ciepłych mieszkańców no i oczywiście na odkrycie kuchnii brazylijskiej!!
Zakupy w supermarketach są prawdziwą przygodą, zabierają dużo czasu ponieważ wszystko jest nowe a ogromny wybór warzyw, owoców, mięsa nie ułatwia szybkich zakupów / co oczywiście jest frajdą!!! Wczoraj dwie ulice od naszego bloku odkryłam nowy sklep z warzywami i owocami,już z daleko dojrzałam koszyczek z dojrzałymi i pysznymi figami!!! Moja propozycja to zielona sałata w towarzystwie świeżych fig, białego sera i salami podana z cytrynowo- miodowym dressingiem.

1 porcja

2 figi
garść zielonej sałaty
6 plastrów salami
kawałek sera białego, około 60 g
2 łyżki jogurtu bądź śmietany
1 łyżeczka suszonego oregano
2 łyżki miodu
1 łyżka soku z cytryny
swieżo zmielony czarny pieprz

Ser biały rozdrobnić widelcem połączyć z jogurtem,  doprawić solą, pieprzem a następnie ukształtować serowe kulki o średnicy ok 2 cm, które należy obtoczyć w oregano. W miseczce wymieszać miód z sokiem z cytryny, doprawic solą i pieprzem. Figi przekroić na ćwiartki. Na zielonej sałacie ułożyć fig, plastry salami oraz kulki z białego sera. Gotową sałatkę polać dressingiem i podawać.

Serdecznie zapraszam do Wrocławia na warsztaty poświęcone kuchni portugalskiej.

Będzie aromatycznie, egzotycznie, pysznie i… niezupełnie w stylu fado, bo bardzo radośnie. Menu • Pastéis de Bacalhau - Salt Cod cakes - krokiety z dorsza ‘bacalhau’ • Bolinhas de Chouriço com Batata - Chouriço and Potato Balls – krokiety z kiełbasy chourico idealne na przekąskę • Polvo com batatas a murro – Octopus with smashed potates, olive oil and piso – zapiekanka z ośmiornicy z tłuczonymi ziemniakami i sosem piso na bazie czosnku, kolendry i cytryny • Baba de Camelo – Caramel walnut mousse – mus karmelowy podany z orzechami włoskimi. #warsztatykulinarne #wspolnegotowanie #cookingworkshop #passionfood #foodlovers #cookwithme #portuguesefood #portuguesecuisine #wroclaw #wroclawfoodie #foodislove #foodie #warsztaty #kuchnia #kuchniaportugalska #lifestyle #passionforcooking #instafood #burdafoodcenter
