Very Nice, Tuna Niçoise

I’ve been taking a little break from writing, and I have been the worst food blogger ever!
Forgive me?
I have some really lovely recipes to make it up to you for my little absence!

Perfect for summer, and simple to achieve!

Feeling refreshed and full of inspiration from  my latest trip to Nice, Cannes and Monaco in the South of France.
I was definitely ready to get back in the kitchen, I had some really incredible food on my trip along the coast.

From Moules Marineres, Cheese Boards, Homemade Gnocchi, Strawberry Tarts and Brie & Fig picnics on the beach – It was bliss!

Nice was our first stop, so I think it’s only appropriate to show off an amazing classic summer salad which was founded in this beautiful Italian/French town

Next – I just made a really simple salad of lettuce, red onion and cucumber – black olives would be perfect here too!

And of course pour yourself a nice glass of something…

use some excess dressing and coat the cooked green beans, then cook again in a hot pan – oh yum!

Sprinkle salt and pepper on the Tuna steaks and Put a little olive oil in a pan, cook on a high heat for 2 minutes on each side.
(Tuna is best served a little pink in the middle! OH YEAH)

 To make this a proper Tuna Nicoise salad you need boiled eggs, in your salad – I am not a fan of hard boiled eggs!

Poached Egg, just slightly over done and laid on top of the tuna finished this dish of perfectly!

SUPER HEALTHY, really simple and delicious!

Voila! Bon Apetit

PRAGUE

WONDERING EUROPE
Part 2 : PRAGUE

P1020223

I Could not recommend Prague MORE!
I had the best time ever, and was sad to leave

P1020177

It was so diverse, from visiting the sex museums, drinking EXCEPTIONAL Pilsner and dancing in the streets
to climbing to the top of the Astronomical Clock and hiking up hills to enjoy the view & hot chocolates.

Prague is actually really romantic – and I thought I was in for a ‘lads’ weekend!
so it was lovely just to enjoy some time doing what we do best.

Eating &Drinking in Prague:

The wine is really bloody cheap, as is the beer – and the Czechs don’t not do badly at their regional tipple!
so finding little brick underground bars was my favourite lunch time mission:

That’s right
That is hollowed out fresh bread
FILLED
with a beef!

OH GOD.

Incredible!

and then getting lost in the incredible old cobbled streets near the famous gothic Chares Bridge
it was brilliant! I bought so many prints and things for our new home
everybody is a struggling artist, or a poet in Prague… or just plain drunk… I Loved it.

After a day of museums of the less sexy kind
it was all about the cake!

I think Tiramisu is on the to make list.
