There is nothing quite like a Belgian waffle straight from a van on the street of Brussels. Yes Belgium is famous for its beer, frites and chocolates, all justified in their stellar reputation, but sometimes these ridiculously decadent yet simple waffles are overlooked. Also I’m not that much of a beer drinker, though I would […]

Home Grown Lemons and the Real Reason I Bake

Home Grown Lemons and the Real Reason I Bake

There are so many reasons to bake. And bake as in cake. After years of comforting myself in the kitchen by stirring, mixing and rubbing in butter, I suddenly realised why I am the one often bringing the cake to the party. The one who bakes banana bread after work, who makes scones for the […]

In Europe or colder places, the long awaited summer sounds more like THIS. Oh […]

A quaint little tea room just like the ones you imagine to find in the English countryside, had a blackboard set up outside announcing Cream Teas were being served. We had hiked along the stunning rough coastline and with […]

Warning – this post is not for vegetarians. Exactly two years ago we were bundled up in our sweaters and socks waiting for an entire roasted lamb to be ready. It had been spinning on the spit since 6am, getting the rosemary-olive oil massage treatment and barely visible through the fog of Terovo. We were […]

People tell you it is the toughest job, that it is not easy, but you don’t really realize what that means until you go through it yourself. How hard can it be to take care of a little human? You see women at cafes chatting over coffee as their babe snoozes in a stroller, you […]

A whole array of dishes, mostly steamed, some deep-fried, others occasionally baked into the crispiest of feathery light pastries, all with the sole purpose of igniting joy.

“Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself.” – Unknown I am sitting at our kitchen table overlooking a small corner of the South China Sea. Boats are passing. Some are huge cargo ships, chugging through the waves with containers of rice, wood, furniture […]
