Cheddar breadsticks


Last Tuesday I had an amazing evening with my LA Food Bloggers friends of the Meetup group. We where invited to a 8 Course Prix-Fixe Dinner at the Barbershop Pop-Up in Venice.

And boy, this was fancy! Chef Walter el Nagar served us delicious food, including the amuse it was 9 courses! I had foie gras for the first time in my life, ate some wild Scottish wood pigeon and fell in love with the candied eggplant.

It’s nice to have a dinner like this once in a while, but deep inside I’m more of a rustic food kinda gal 😉


I love working with dough and I don’t always work very precisely. I’m not the type to attempt to make a high end fondant cake or aspire to try molecular gastronomy.

No, just let me cook with normal pots and pans in my kitchen; just let me roll up my sleeves to knead some bread dough and just please let me bake rustic looking cakes.


And even though I adore cooking and have to run back to the kitchen after 3 days of eating out, I don’t want to spent my whole day in the kitchen. My time is precious you know 😉
So that’s why I like these cheddar breadsticks. You whip them up in just a second. Well ok, in 15 minutes or so. Or maybe in 25, but that’s still a short time!

And do you know that’s just the time your soup needs to simmer? So! These’s breadsticks are perfect to go with a soup.

Or as a snack, just as you like it. Here is my recipe:
