My friend Food Travel Live and cook extraordinaire says this is daily common food and they mill their own flour (wheat, chickpeas etc) at home to make this dish on a daily basis to accompany meals. She did it so quickly over the pan, I was busy taking notes and marvelling at her dexterity. This […]

I work from home and have alot more flexibility around my meals and prepping my meals. For the last four years, although I worked from home, the demands of back to back conference calls didn’t allow me to actually even have lunch or time to pee. Now that I’m back in the freelance work from […]

indian cooking class 1 (13 of 16)

The butter chicken dish is one of the husband’s and my favourite dishes. I of course made the pilgrimage to Moti Mahal in New Dehli where it was created. And I was thrilled for Food Travel Live to teach me how to make the dish. The extensive range of spices is still daunting, but hopefully […]

indian cooking class 1 (1 of 2)

The privilege of having friends who are amazing cooks – is better than being married to a chef because chef hardly does the cooking at home! As Julia Child once said “People who love to eat (and cook) are always the best people.” Most of my tribe who loves to eat, also love to cook […]

Check out C’s Kitchen is full of wonderful and easy recipes […]

smitten kitchen lazy pizza dough recipe

flourless chocolate cake wolfgang puck recipe

I’ve done this a few times, but I think I have finally found the winning formula. This is based on Wolfgang Puck’s favourite chocolate cake recipe. I am still working on my photography classes and food styling, and couldn’t quite decide on which shot was better. What do you think? I still have to learn how […]

blueberry muffins styling

I am trying to get the hang of this baking thing, but also because I am working on my Skillshare class and applying Pinch of Yum’s Tasty Food Photography tips, I highly recommend it, it’s worth the investment. Still getting the hang of my new DSLR and finally getting down to learning how to use the […]

gluten free flourless chocolate cake

I’ve made this twice now and cannot believe how easy it is with just 3 ingredient for a flourless chocolate cake: Sugar, eggs, chocolate bars. I was looking up recipes on Pinterest and found Girl Gone Gourmet‘s instructions the easiest and most comprehensive. Great for breakfast or tea time over a Moka brew of some tea. […]
