My uncompromising way of cooking regional dishes means that I have to re-interpret even the simplest recipes. At first, making the mental switch is a challenge. But you soon notice that instead of doing without, you are re-discovering the diversity of our local products and the creativity that this unleashes. A good example is this simple pesto recipe, which lends itself very well to regional interpretation: I substitute pumpkin seeds and rapeseed oil for pine nuts and olive oil. Roasted pumpkin seeds produce a wonderfully nutty flavour which harmonizes perfectly with Sbrinz cheese.
