I think I just made something that have reserved a spot for me in hell. I went a bit nuts with this, but after the first mouthful I was absolutely sold. This is a once in six months kinda thing. It's rich, tangy, nutty, arranged with delicious fluffy pancakes and a...

Under the right conditions, breakfast can become something way more intense than the toast you initially set out for. This is what happened on my Mexican eggs day. Rapid fire, super simple guacamole, paired with caramelized mushroom and bacon, a squeeze of lime and a s...

Forever on the hunt for new combinations, I came across this little side dish, Wambatu Moju, from Sri Lanka. This recipe, I thought, will be perfect for Spiceweek. I've just put down my knife and fork and the verdict is out: it is delicious, and slightly different...

Beans! Meat! Protein overload. This is a gorgeous array of crispy chips, potato and sweet potato. On top, a delightful, earthy mixture of meat, Italian grown black eye peas and tomato, laced with heavy hits of garlic, onion and rosemary. Delicious!
