We’re giving you options for take-away

Take-away by SMS

Just because the Stadt is on lockdown, doesn’t mean you don’t need to eat!

Because of the current, worldwide health situation, there are only two ways you can enjoy the convenience of Jesus RICE! freshness (until April 19 or till further notice): “Basic take-away” where you come by Jesus RICE! Monday through Friday 11.30 to 13.30, and “SMS pre-order take-away” where you send me text message (079 961 64 65) with your order in advance.

1. Basic take-away.

It’s simple. All you need to do is come into Jesus RICE!, place your order, and pay. (Please note, supplies are limited.)

2. SMS pre-order take-away.

  1. Send an SMS by 9.30am with your order
  2. Write your name and pick up time (any time between 11.30 and 13.30, M-F)
  3. Wait for my confirmation. I will do this manually, on a one-by-one basis, so please be patient.
  4. Come by Jesus RICE! at your stated timeframe to pay for and pick up your order.

As you know, I cook food fresh daily. Supplies are limited. So, once I’m sold out, I’m sold out.

Yuck! Horrible! Cooking Show Fail…

Chef Luna Horrible

A few months ago, I received a call to cater an event for a large group of people in Winterthur. My goal: to create the most horrible-tasting experience for them imaginable. My first step was to go through my shelves and refrigerators and dig up all the oldest, worst-tasting ingredients I could get my hands on.

JUST KIDDING!

Have you ever noticed how the television cooking shows always have the chef tasting his own food and going, “Mmmm! Delicious!” with a dreamy expression? We thought we’d have a laugh and shoot the opposite. If I hadn’t been so sleep-deprived, I might have found this less funny…

April Fool’s Day!

So, about the Horrible! exclamation in the video…

I was preparing Tabbouleh, made with a lot of fresh parsley and mint, quinoa, tomatoes, fresh lemon, some olive oil and salt. This was but one of five dishes I was preparing for about 40 people, and I had been on a roll, but getting a little silly. These parties have a lot of moving parts.

Because I’m committed to freshness, and quality ingredients, most of the preparation gets pushed to the last day or two before the event. It’s like being back in college getting ready for a big exam. There can be sleepless nights with a few 20-minute power naps leading up to the moment when people start arriving. And there can be bouts of delirious silliness.

Hope you had a laugh with us.

Have you seen my cookbook?

I have a little cookbook out and ready for download. It’s called 5 Easy Chef Luna Recipes. You can access it by clicking here, or on the image furthr below.

In it, I share the following five easy recipes:Cover Image of 5 Easy Chef Luna Recipes

  • A delicious Cabbage Saladrecipe, one of my most popular dishes back in the United States
  • Asian-style Green Beans, which is a healthy alternative to the french fry
  • Gambas al ajillo, one of my favorite easy-as-hell, show-stopping dishes
  • A dependable Tomato Sauce recipe, which serves as an important flavor basis for any dish, including spaghetti, of course. (This tomato sauce is THE secret ingredient to the Bacon Lovers’ Erlebnis speck-tacularness!)
  • Banana Brot, an easy recipe that delivers again and again

One of the things I love about this little booklet is that each recipe has a hyperlink that sends you directly to a YouTube video. So, you have all the ingredients and a brief description on one page, but you can see the recipe in action! Just click on the link in the image below!

The menu at Jesus RICE! as of March 2019

The menus photographed above are largely what you can expect to get for lunch at Jesus RICE! One exception: no pumpkin. The vegan menu is still available, but pumpkin is not part of the dish. As I work with what nature supplies, I’ll let customers know on a day-to-day basis.

As usual, all dishes are served with white rice and white beans.

And, yes, those are my prices… ENJOY!

Seeing is believing! (A little bit of Jesus RICE food porn)

There are a few updates to the Jesus RICE! business in the pipeline. (Hint: stay tuned to learn about our dinner times. Also, if you ever dreamed of takeaway, come back to this website to learn more!) To prepare for those updates, we got fancy with photography. Now, you can see the menu!

New Bacon Lovers’ menu item tastes like my favorite pizza!

Bacon Lovers Erlebnis! at Chef Luna's Jesus RICE!

A few weeks ago, Jesus RICE! added the Bacon Lovers’ Erlebnis to the menu. Even though I haven’t gotten around to adding it to my menu boards, it has made it to my paper order slips — and it looks like customers love it! I certainly do.

It’s perfect for this time of year. Good, bacon tastiness, supported by a smooth tomato sauce and a hint of caramelized onions.

I was wondering why I loved this dish so much, and then it hit me! It tastes like my favorite pizza, Lo Speck — only, instead of dough, it’s served with rice (my alltime favorite starch!).

The Best Pizza in Winterthur?

My customers often ask me where I go to out to eat. Honestly, there are only a handful of places I go to. Pizzeria Cardinal is one of them. Whenever I go there I order Lo Speck. I probably love it so much because it tastes like my bacon lovers’ menu item at Jesus RICE!

Check out my video (under five minutes) to see why I think the best pizza in Winterthur is at Pizzeria Cardinal!

(This blog post is my honest opinion. I have not received any compensation or payment to make the video or write this blog post.)  

If you find yourself in Winterthur, and you’re looking for a great place to have pizza and an Italian dinner, you won’t regret coming to his family-owned business. It’s well worth your evening in this small town.

Now on the menu: every bacon lover’s dream!

Bacon Lovers Erlebnis! at Chef Luna's Jesus RICE!

Last week’s snowfall presented the perfect opportunity for me to try out a new menu item. The result: a Bacon Lovers’ Erlebnis — that’s German for Experience — that brings together the best of all worlds! Hearty flavor, that spoons perfectly with rice and white beans.

One of the Bacon Lovers in my life is totally into this!

So, what’s in the Bacon Lovers’ Erlebnis? It basically looks like the picture above, but it tastes like an amazing Italian amatriciana.  So, here’s your list of ingredients:

  • Speck (Schweinsfleisch aus der CH)
  • Onions / Zwiebeln
  • Chopped Tomatoes
  • Tomato Sauce (Remind me to tell you about my recipe book!)
  • Fresh herbs / Frische kräutern
