That looks fabulous - so simple and beautiful. Your presentation techniques are always just stunning. What I aim for but never achieve.

whre are you moving to?

Are you moving far far away?


Hey Johanna, this looks absolutely divine, where did you get such lovely, fresh scallops? I ate at l'Atelier last year for my wedding anniversary and had the tasting menu. I thought some courses were brilliant, others less so. But it is the simple things that I think he does so well, like these scallops, his purée de pommes de terre au beurre, etc. Did you use Nyons olive oil? And where are you moving to btw? I am moving soon, too. To Singapore, wish me luck!


Great photo, great recipe, Johanna. I also adore the simple recipes relying on perfect ingredients. And, may I also be curious: where, by all means, are you moving to ? Probably not back to Austria, right ? (though it would be nice to have the chance to see you more often...) Kind regards and take care, angelika


ha! i am most lucky to have a brilliant fishmonger just around the corner... and have made sure that there is one near the new house as well, of course! Can't rely on supermarkets for fresh seafood, can you?
Not moving far away, actually just 2 miles or so... South end of Richmond Park here in London, but much bigger house and LOTS of entertaining space - yippee! Roll on the dinner parties!


Amazing looking dish. Definitely my kind of food :)

BTW, I am getting ready to post a recipe to prepare tamales, I'll keep you posted. HUGS,


I just cooked this dish for guests on my yacht (I am working as a cook). it was wonderful, I managed to get super fresh scallops flown in from a market in paris (I am in the caribbean), and as my guests are low fat, low carb, high protein I have been surfing the web for inspiration. I am now totally hooked on your page. Thank you! It's been a while since I saw some new refreshing ideas. PS. The guests said it was 'world class' incredible'. I am now looking to buy your cookbook!


I tried this recipe and it came out unbelievable. YUM! Thanks for posting. Also, check out my blog :)
