2 Fresh Dorade 600g per person (aprox.1.3lb per person).

get-attachment-4.aspx 4.03.14 AMgarlic 10 cloves

parsley 1 small bunch

sherry vinegar 3-4tbs

fleur de sel

olive oil


Piment d’espellete spice in red powder



Espelette pepper (small spicy red pepper)

You can sprinkle your salad or veggies with MILA seeds rich in Omega 3. So far this is the best most natural way to enrich your diet in Omega 3 gluten-trans fat-sugar-free.



Flake and cut the fish in half with clean wiped belly without separating it.  Gently smear some olive oil all over and sprinkle with fleur de sel (big pieces salt) . Put into the baking tray to pre-heated oven for 7minutes on each side in 425F temperature.

Slice garlic and cook in 20cl (aprox 7oz almost one glass) olive oil over medium heat. The secret to not to burn garlic is it to start cooking it in cold oil. Add small piece of red spicy espelette pepper to add flavor as shown in the picture above. Cook gently until garlic will start to shrink due to the water absorption and will change into nice light brownish color. Remove garlic when ready and put it on paper towel to absorb access of oil. Keep the remaining cooked oil for the final sauce glaze.  Chop parsley into fine pieces.

Once Dorade is cooked. Its important to place it into metallic platter as shown.  (All fish should always be served on the metallic platters). Open and separate it to fillet throughly getting rid of all bones. Put more fleur de sel and sprinkle over Piment d’espellete powder, add parsley, sliced cooked garlic, sherry vinegar, and finally glaze and cover everything with warm olive oil of garlic to complete this delicious dish.

Dinner, lunch is served!

As always I would love to hear from you and let me know how it turned out for you?

Ostrich Egg Omelet and Chocolate mousse for your flat stomach

What’s in Your Kitchen?

Once again, I assisted my favorite gal (founder of Tonique Fitness) in the kitchen, and  today she was Chef Sylwia WiesenbergBoth of us experimented fully with cooking and developed our own passion for balanced, delicious, fresh healthy meals anyone can make and became quite good CHEFS!I  We often rely on each other’s taste of new samplings, always coming out with new varieties and JOCK POT RECIPES.hmtks5pxKgZyS2_bsNco9QdyuM3Hay6KvEQ9ERC47bk

Ladies, we all want to be able to fit into our Chihuahua-sized dresses and to do this, it isil_570xN.155576486 important to eat healthy! In today’s world, it can be so hard to resist the temptation of greasy fast-food when we are on-the go and too busy to cook. That’s why we located high-energy, delicious, seasonal produce from a local Farmer’s Market at Union Square immersing in the best of nature’s beauty loading on ramps, micro greens, radishes and sprouts. Today, Sylwia has shown us how to cook with an item most people are probably too intimated to use, an Ostrich Egg!

BPSkTKV-5wmzSi9795dbgeeEnKZW2Olh1G-N-BoqMaYThey are the giant eggs you see in Whole Foods Market that look like they could have come from a dinosaur or dragons! They may be intimidating, but once you conquer your fears, you’ll find that these ostrich eggs can be the star of your next meal!

They are just SO GOOD!  



You can impress your guests not only with your outfit but shine with your culinary skills as well.C6adeN8-Ju_8wXBZC1K99ZA_E5FaKMbNlT9lOOa4t7g The first challenge is to know how to open the ostrich egg. You can’t just crack it like a regular egg.

Chef Sylwia to the rescue!

She showed  how to graciously open the egg. Be patient to get it all out of the shell. It almost felt like a baby ostrich was going to emerge from the egg! Astonishingly, one ostrich egg is the equivalent of 24 chicken eggs, giving enough food to feed more than 10 people! To give flavor and add nutrients to this dish Sylwia used fresh ramps and radishes. Vegetables like these are a great way to add healthy food to your diet without breaking the bank.

They complete every course and commit you to keep those extra pounds off!


Once we tasted the finished product, I knew that ostrich egg would be in my diet from now on! I could hardly believe that they were healthy meals because they were so tasty!

The frittata and omelet are great healthy options to add to your diet and are very versatile too.

Eat – Pray – Love and don’t get FAT



If its a guilty breakfast pleasure you are doing it wrong! Its been proven that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Unfortunately most of us either skip it or even worst stuff ourselves with all wrong choices that rob us off energy, vitality, longevity and add inches to our waist line. DR.CELEMNTAccording to the world’s top naturalpath PHD Dr Brian Clement founder of Hippocrates Institute in West Palm Beach, FL the best option to start your day and boost your energy levels is with green juices or simply liquids. Until 11am we should be consuming only liquids as the body recovers from the sleeping mode and adjusts its readiness to consume solid foods.


Sylwia Wiesenberg Fitness Expert, creator of Tonique Fitness and I created few delicious nutritious smoothies and green drinks that will boost your energy levels and keep you charged all day. Cheat on your favorite diner joint, roll up the sleeves and create a smoothie that will BOOST and extend your longevity. You don’t have to learn from French their cooking secrets anymore. Thankfully I caught Sylwia on her “cuisine” mastermind charms  and wanted to share her nutrition wisdom with all of you. 


I assisted her in preparation of this delicious shake made out of Young coconut, champagne mango, and dragon fruit. Thanks to her I discovered the revelation of the tropical and exotic fruits mellow sweetness of which I had no prior knowledge’s existence.

Sylwia nailed this refreshing elixir. Take a lesson from her: give me some bright liquid smoothie made just in minutes in the comfort of your kitchen that delivers all needed nutrients to your body.

Today I can’t use enough of this delicious joy and start each morning with this super tasty smoothie alternated with green juices.  You can create your own star performance smoothie and start the BREAKFAST MAGIC every morning! Armed with all the right ingredients, its easy to make, and you will be so happy “GOOD MORNING” is finally here.


Sylwia’s smoothie recipe:

1 Young Coconut (pour the water out and scoop out yummy coconut meat)

1 Champagne or 1 Atkins mango

3 scoops or (tbs) of organic raw hemp powder (source of 16g of protein)

1/2 frozen banana

1/2 dragon fruit


For the sweeter taste I like to add 1 tbs of agave (or stevia) + boost my immune system with 1 tbs organic SAIGON cinnamon.

Mix all ingredients together in VITAMIX (preferably) until smooth solid texture for about 60 seconds.




World’s Most Exclusive Beaches

Beaches and beach resorts and restaurants that are graced with famous people on a regular basis often become more exclusive because the demand for them is higher (after all, everyone wants to live life like a celebrity). So where are the most exclusive beaches, beach clubs, and the like? Read on fellow beach-goers…

Le Club 55, St. Tropez

One of the world’s most exclusive restaurants, Le Club 55 sits on St. Tropez’s white-sanded beach of Pampelonne. It has been known to serve many famous people, but all customers are treated the same… if you’re lucky enough to even get a table, that is. You should definitely try to get yourself a reservation at this beach club if you’re planning a trip to St. Tropez – it’s a once-in-a-lifetime kind of experience!

Saline Beach, St. Barts

St. Barts is a well-known vacay spot, in fact it’s got two different beaches on my list! Saline Beach in St. Barts is a bit rougher than some of its other beaches but has the luxury of being quite private and very obviously tranquil and beautiful.

Colombier Beach, St. Barts

This is the second St. Barts beach on my list. Only accessible by boat or a 25-minute long hike through rugged terrain, this beach is so secluded it might as well be considered private. Colombier is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, sailing, or just admiring the view.

Cambridge Beaches, Sandys, Bermuda

Cambridge Beaches is a cottage colony perfect for a romantic getaway or a family escape. You will be treated like a celebrity by its staff who will cater to your every need. Dine at the gourmet restaurant or visit its spa or spend the day on one of its five private beaches. These exclusive accomodations ensure you the luxurious vacation you desire.

Rania, The Maldives

Rania is an exclusive private island experience. You get your own island home hidden somewhere in the Indian Ocean, private yacht, personal chef, and staff. This is the ultimate sanctuary, oasis, getaway – whatever you want to call it! This experience has luxury (and “$$$”) written all over it.

Is there such a thing as too exclusive? Because if so, these places probably qualify! What do you think the most exclusive beach destinations in the world are? Would you have guessed St. Barts, Bermuda, the Indian Ocean and France? As always, let me know!

Your fashion guru,



World’s Most Expensive Desserts

Do you have expensive taste?… I mean that literally. If your taste buds crave luxurious combinations of the finest ingredients that your wallet cannot afford, you’ll be drooling at this list of the most expensive desserts in the world.

Frrrozen Haute Chocolate

From Serendipity 3, this is one “hot” chocolate that you won’t forget. Not only is the dessert itself valuable with cocoas from 14 different countries and 5 grams of 24-carat gold, but the serving goblet is banded with gold and decorated with diamonds. So how much will this tasty treat cost you? The answer is $25,000!
4. Chef Marc Guibert’s Chocolate Pudding

This is no ordinary pudding, ringing in at $34,000! It is layered with biscuit joconde, champagne jelly, and dark chocolate and topped with gold leaves and a 2-carat diamond.

3. Platinum Cake

Although this cake has yet to be sold, its original purpose was to encourage more people to wear platinum jewelry. I’m not sure if this makes me want to wear more platinum or just simply stuff my face with cake. Either way, this cake is a delectable dessert draped in all sorts of platinum pieces and topped with edible platinum flakes. It’s very pretty and certainly costs a pretty penny, rounding in at $130,000!
2. Strawberries Arnaud

Would you pay $1.4 million for a platter of strawberries? Because that’s pretty much what this dessert comes down to – a plate of strawberries topped with cream and mint. Yay? Oh, I did forget to mention that it comes with a one-of-a-kind 4.7-carat pink diamond ring and is accompanied by wine served out of a $25,000  wine set and live music. Totally makes it worth your while now, right?…

1. Diamond Fruitcake

So, we’ve come to #1 and already surpassed $1 million with #2. Any guesses how much this festive cake topped with 223 small diamonds that took a chef 7 months to prepare might cost? Well, the answer is $1.65 million.



So, there you have it! The world’s most expensive desserts, topping the list with a $1.65 million fruitcake (of all things, fruitcake? Really???).

Looking forward to hearing your comments and questions!

Taste your wine like a pro

Gabrielle Vizzavona
French wine expert, member of “French Sommelier Association”, and TV host taught me how to taste wine like a pro.  Learning it was an adventure for me, and truly deepen my wine appreciation for both wines and winemakers. We started with wine basic senses of looking at wine, smelling, tasting it and of course lots of spitting!!

Gabrielle described general characteristics of wine with the range of flavors, and aromas.  I learned that wines have four basic components: sweetness,  tannins,  alcohol,  and acidity. A good wine will have a good balance of all for characteristics.  Aging will soften tannins. Acidity will soften throughout the life of a wine as it undergoes chemical changes which include the break down of acids.  Fruit will rise and then fall throughout the life of a wine. Alcohol will stay the same. All these factors contribute to knowing when to drink a wine.

Throughout her adventures international wine taster Gabrielle found some amazing wines almost everywhere.  Here is her favorite California & Oregon wine list recommendation for wine lovers.


Belle pente riesling 07, Muller thurgau (12 doll), Riesling 09 (20 doll), Patz & Hall, Hanzel (pinot noir), Joseph Phelps (bordeaux blends), Lagier Meredith (Shiraz), Viader (petit verdot), Calera pinot noir 07
