~ Asian Pasta Twist ~

M.F.K Fisher was on point when he said that “with our gastronomical growth will come, inevitability, knowledge and perception of a hundred other things, but mainly ourselves”. Food is extremely multidimensional and it’s something that shapes us, identifies us, our cultures and in the end our society. The past decade has seen a rise in…

Back in University, when I was doing my degree in English Literature, I used to love Robert Frost. One time I came across one of his quotes saying, “There is one thing more exasperating than a wife who can cook and won’t, and that’s a wife who can’t cook and will”. I remember laughing out…

~ McArabia ~ 

Valencia Mackie said “never to give advise unless you have walked the walk, because anyone can talk the talk”, well conceding with her, I strongly advice you to try this recipe. When you read McArabia, the first thing that comes to mind is the glitz and glam of the Middle East. Growing up in the…

This piquant and sweet dish stems from the roots of Hunan Cuisine in China. Hunan Cuisine is traditionally extremely spicy and packed with smoked chilli flavours. This deep fried dish is sweet but not overly so, with a mild kick and smoky flavour from the chillies and a good amount of tanginess. Meanwhile, the cornstarch…

~Mince Potato Biryani~ 

The delicious complex fusion of spices, warmth of flavour and freshness of mouthwatering aromas, Biryani, has come to epitomize the zenith of Indian Cuisine. Though it originated in Persia, Turk-Mongol conqueror Taimur, introduced this delicacy to Indian Cuisine. The Mughals, however, decided to kick it up a notch and upgrade the dish to royalty fit…

~Chicken Fajita~

Cooking is all about people. No matter where you come from, food is something that will always be universal. It knows no race, colour or borders. It spurs innovation and creativity and gives birth to newfangled flamboyant trends in universal gastronomy and as Julia Child stated, “in cooking you’ve got to have a what-the-hell attitude”. …

~Butter Chicken~ 

Okay! I admit it, I am a Naan Bread person. I love my curries and my Naan. It satisfies my hunger in a way rice never could, well, except for biryani that is. This Butter chicken is absolute exhilaration. It is a celebration of extremely simple spices on your palate giving you robust blend of…

~Nutella Trifle Shots~ 

“I believe that being Happy is the only important thing. Happiness, Simple as a glass of chocolate” (Joanne Harris, Chocolat) and ofcourse, these were pure joy. I can say one thing for sure, a woman needs her chocolate because without it every emotion that she is feeling is incomplete. When I am happy, I want…
