“Britain is no longer totally a white place where people ride horses, wear long frocks and drink tea. The national dish is no longer fish and chips, it’s curry” (Marianne Jean-Baptiste). In Britain Indian curries have found a very special place. The very famous Brick Lane in Tower Hamlets in East London painted a new…

“A first rate soup is more creative than a second-rate painting” (Abraham Maslow). So, it snowed heavy today in London, which is a very rare happening because we haven’t had snow in the truest sense of the word since the February of 2009. I will be honest, it’s magical waking up to a white duvet…

“Every salad you serve is a picture you have painted, a sculpture you have modeled, a drama you have created” (Carol Traux, The art of Salad Making).

On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for…

If you have never read Shauna Niequist’s “BitterSweet”, you have surely missed out on a beautiful book and though it is hard for me to actually pick out one favourite part from the book, because I just love the whole book, I like to share one excerpt regarding autumn and all the delights that come…

There is a reason why “Burgers” are considered a part of “Comfort Food” family and that is because eating burgers actually make you happy. It’s true! eat one and you’ll feel endorphins building up in your body making you feel happy, comforted and satiated. Ina Garten is a huge name in the English gastronomy and…

Robert Frost is one of my favourite poets in English Literature. “The Road Not Taken” is perhaps his most infamous of poems, but he wrote many others just like it. He is particularly known as a “Nature Poet” because of his consistent and constant use of Natural scenes, elements and his expressions of sensuous pleasures…
