Sometimes you have unexpected guests (or even expected guests but you are ill-prepared – it happens).


Ilse Cooks the Books: Beef Wellington

Ilse Cooks the Books: Beef Wellington | Blog Post

What can one say about Beef Wellington? It’s a classic.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Nachos

Ilse Cooks the Books: Nachos | Blog Post

I know the premise of this entire blog, is me cooking someone else’s food.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Thai Red Pork Curry

Ilse Cooks the Books: Thai Red Pork Curry | Blog Post

Just when we thought winter was almost over, this past week gave us a nice cold klap to bring us back to reality.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Slow-baked beef short-rib

Ilse Cooks the Books: Slow-baked beef short-rib | Blog Post

With all this crazy Covid-19 business going on, I’ve become very nostalgic for the food I grew up with. I think it’s because many of our best memories are connected to food.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Shakshouka

Ilse Cooks the Books: Shakshouka | Blog Post

I have never met an egg I didn’t like. Fried, poached, scrambled, in an omelette, hard-boiled, devilled or not, eggs make me happy (although I would give the popular Chinese dish 100-year eggs a miss).


Ilse Cooks the Books: Crispy Pork Belly

Ilse Cooks the Books: Crispy Pork Belly | Blog Post

I’ve been a chicken-pescatarian (as one friend called it!) for a very long time. It’s not even a real thing. It’s a vegetarian that also eats fish, seafood and chicken. Thus, not really a vegetarian at all.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Huweliksformulier or Chicken Soup

Ilse Cooks the Books: Huweliksformulier or Chicken Soup | Blog Post

I can’t imagine surviving through winter without soup. Quite frankly, any dish I can eat with a spoon from a bowl gets my vote.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Caramel Chicken

Ilse Cooks the Books: Caramel Chicken | Blog Post

Caramel chicken. Any phrase with the word caramel in it, makes me very happy. If it’s something I can serve up for dinner, even better.


Ilse Cooks the Books: Potato and Pea Curry

Ilse Cooks the Books: Potato and Pea Curry | Blog Post

It’s winter. It’s cold. Covid-19 has swallowed us and spat us out in the first half of 2020. But we will not be defeated!
