Bacon wrapped dates with fetaOver the years I have tried many variations of bacon-wrapped dates, and they are usually delicious.  But once I tried the version created by my new friend Nate on a birthday celebration trip to upstate New York, I completely fell in love with this snack. 

Nate’s secret was to stuff the dates with feta cheese. The combination of the rich flavor from the feta with the sweet dates and salty bacon is a perfect mouthwatering combination. I made these at a little wine and cheese party and they quickly disappeared.Bacon wrapped dates with feta directions

  1. • Bacon, cut into smaller pieces, just big enough to wrap a date
  2. • Feta cheese, cut into thin rectangles
  3. • Small dried dates, pitted
  1. • Tooth picks
  1. 1. Cut a slit along each date and stuff them with feta. Wrap a piece of bacon around each date, and close and secure the bacon with a toothpick.
  2. 2. Bake in the oven at 350°F (180°C) for about 25 minutes, or until browned and crisp.
  3. 3. Transfer them onto a plate lined with paper towel to absorb the grease from the bacon. Serve them on a nice serving plate.

I LOVE FOOD and better yet I LOVE TO COOK.

I can thank my Vietnamese roots. Vietnamese people use a great amount of time cooking and eating, traits which they have learned from their families. Everyone seems to know how to cook, and they are adept at picking fresh and quality foods from the market. Food is a priority in Vietnam – if you eat well, you live well.

I was born in Denmark, and in my mind I am a true Dane. Danish people cook a lot as well, but they prefer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table. I consider myself Vietnamese from a culinary standpoint and Danish from a cultural standpoint (and I live in New York, which is a Mecca for foodies).

My mum is a great cook, she taught me how to chop vegetables and how to just randomly throw things together and somehow get an awesome meal. She makes cooking seem like art, and she is my inspiration for DiepLicious cooking.

My husband loves food as well and he has a great appetite. Cooking for him is a real joy. He has a great interest in everything that concerns health, and loves to point out specific foods and why they are good for you to eat. I will share his knowledge with you. He makes my cooking more challenging, but also a lot healthier.

I offer you one Golden Rule: to enjoy food fully, always taste the food even if you don’t like it. For me it takes a couple of tries to get to know the real flavor.
