Deviled eggs with fresh cheese, capers and smoked salmon

I love eggs! And I eat them several times during the week … often my dinner undergoes a soup and some eggs … and the most curious is that this is the first recipe with eggs that I publish here! I think is because I prefere the most usual and simple ways: poached or fried with a little salt and pepper and accompanied with a loaf of bread.

There are many versions of Deviled Eggs. This one is much lighter and less sinful because it doesn’t use the usual mayonnaise. Also this recipe marks the beginning of the partnership with Tété Cheeses, for more than 50 years delighting us with their cheeses. It began with a more traditional production, but currently offers a range of diversified products, made with cow’s, goat’s or sheep’s milk.

I grew up surrounded by animals and I remember as a small kid tasting goat and sheep’s milk, which are in no way similar to cow’s milk. Therefore also the products made with the different types of milk are quite distinct. So I am a great admirer of the brand. Besides being able to purchase the products comfortably from home by the online store , the brand offers a diverse range of products combining the tradition of decades with the quality of preparation.

Octopus Salad 2 ways: with Lime and Coriander or Capers and Basil

I hate conventions. I hate fixed ideas and rigid rules. And regarding food even worse. Why does the traditional octopus cold salad must always be seasoned with green sauce? The octopus has a fantastic flavor and can handle bolder flavors .. who says that there are rules for it?
Half took good olive oil, lime juice, chilli and coriander! Fabulous! The rest was married with olive oil as well, but also capers, basil and mustard.
