They are not really pickles… but how to say ? Small bits siding a dish.
Spicy tomato agar.
スダチ is a small green citrus from the area of Tokushima. It is thought to have lots of medicinal properties to fight diabetes and allergies. And it’s fragrant, fresh, delicious too. sudachi
Eringi tsukemono :
I’ve used only the stalks for this recipe. I sliced them thinly, mixed with the juice of a sudachi, its cut peel and a pinch of sea salt. Cover. Let 1 or 2 days in the fridge, mixing twice a day.
Tomato juice, salt, powdered jalapeno chili and agar. I have not used enough agar for a solid result (you have to follow the proportions on the package). It’s still good and refreshing, but I need a spoon to eat it. Ideally, you want to make cubes that can be grabbed with chopsticks or a fork.

A classic appetizer or snack food from Bourgogne (Burgondy), the cheese
gougères. Served freshly baked, still hot with wine or a drink. Mmmm…
It’s the same recipe as the
choux (cream puffs, here). Today my cheese was the infamous process product, I’ve added a little nutmeg and some fragrant fresh herbs to compensate.
Baked till golden. Devoured 1 minutes after the photoshoot…
Warm, golden, firm, fluffy…and small. That’s the perfect blinis.
It’s ideal for small smoked salmon bites.
A yeasted dough with 30% of buckwheat flour, after an hour in a warm place, I added an egg (white beaten), cream.
Other version :
simple buttery blinis
As I don’t have mini-pans, I simply re-cut them.
With salmon, aneth, onions.
No wasting !
At coffee time, with the cut parts can be reheated, served with rose petal cream cheese, mikan mandarin marmelade and better to melt on top :
Finger food to start the party. Let’s make 3 funny rolled bites.
Prune bacon maki. Sweet and bacon, a classic.
Oyster bacon maki. The 3 flavors of bacon, seafood and seaweed make the perfect harmony.
Green maki. A classic here. That’s a way to get lots of greens in one mouthful. I always find the party meals lack plants and easy to digest items. So I always include some.
Boiled and refreshed leaves of spinach and cabbage. I simply season them with black pepper. They serve as a mouth refresher for fat and salty bites.
You can roll all kind of food in slices of bacon, and fix with a toothpick.
Oyster, nori seaweed.
Grill a few minutes.
Enjoy with white wines or your preferred sweet cocktail.
A few ideas to eat a maximum of greens and veggies in a meal…
