Baked Chocolate Peach Mousse
Hi Derdriu, I've tried various whiskeys but they're too powerful for me. Liqueurs, yes, they're better. I don't know why I said whiskey in this article. I rather see this recipe with something like a kumquat liqueur (I tried some in Greece).

Baked Chocolate Peach Mousse
Mira, Lovely recipe that calls for revisits. Is it likelier for you to find a Scotch whisky or an American or Irish whiskey? What liqueur would tend to be used?

Mira, Thank you for the observations. It's interesting how today's most valuable career skills no longer overtly emphasize social and team-playing skills.

Breakfast Romanian-Style, with Some Other Breakfast Ideas
I think what confuses me about cheese like Gouda with caraway is that I've had a stretch where I read more on food and I'm pretty sure I read about this as well, especially in books about paring food and wine. I may have also seen such seeded ...

An Easy, Healthy Recipe for Eggplant Salad (Spread)
I haven't traveled extensively in Eastern Europe, but my sense is that yes, Eastern Europeans do use mayonnaise with vegetables. But I have to say I've eaten lots of veggie salads in Bulgaria without mayo. Same think in Greece. So probably more ...

Breakfast Romanian-Style, with Some Other Breakfast Ideas
I should look for cheese online myself. I may have eaten cheese with caraway or cumin, or I may have eaten the combo in meals of cheese with seeded bread. I probably would have remembered seeded cheese though. It's certainly not available here ...

An Easy, Healthy Recipe for Eggplant Salad (Spread)
Mira, I meant to ask previously if there's a tendency to use sea salt in Romania. Also, I tend to think of Russian cuisine as using mayonnaise with vegetables. Would that be just Russian or also generalized to Eastern Europe as well?
