This simple Thai salad is not only visibly gorgeous and beautiful smelling but also we will do good to our health if we eat it with our without meat. It is an excellent summer side dish for grilled meat but we can as well serve it with striped fried chicken breast. It is important to buy ripe mango, the rest are seasonal vegetables so they are delicious anyways. I always try to use bio vegetables.
I have renewed a bit a regular carrot cake recipe. I am sure I will re-bake this recipe a couple more times as it is really delicious, even on the second or the third day for a good breakfast.
This used to be a feast dish during our visits in the Christmas time at my grandma’s. But of course my grandma was not serving it with pumpkin cream, she served it with lots of onion and potatoes baked together with the meat in the fat. Nonetheless, the fat we shall need. We are going to use a lot of mangalica lard. Potatoes we only put in a few just for the tradition, . I have also exchanged the stronger red onions to shallot onions and we should not forget the garlic either that grandma was also using a lot. This way, we can cook a real filling winter comfort food that we can make feast-like. We can make a rillettes from the rest of the meat and fat which can be an excellent breakfast dish one of those lazy mornings with some fresh baguette or any other fresh bread. I cut up a lot of spring onions and radish to eat with.

Due to the summer holiday season and to coincidence, this time when I made this wonderful sweet bread I had a tiny help too. The 6-year old neighbor kid was just over by us when I was just kneading the dough. She could smell the scent of the rising bread when I started to stretch out the dough. She came over to me and proposed her help in anything I need. I was more than happy to say yes to her. So we were filling the sweet bread together with my little help on a summer morning. She could hardly wait for the sweet bread to bake ready by that time all the kitchen smelled through gorgeous sweet bread smell. The girl took home so proudly the 10 pieces she filled herself. It was an experience to bake together with her.
