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 […]

We had a wonderful dinner here last summer when they still had ** Michelin stars, pity about losing one in this year’s guide. Everything from the service to the food was impeccable and worthy of their two stars when we dined there. The restaurant is intimate and cosy with a straightforward menu and every dish […]

I have been buried under work and behind blogging, reading, cooking and everything I love about life. That is set to change soon with some adjustments I’ve made to work and play as I choose life. :) Well, I picked this up at the Taipa Macau library the other day and enjoyed it so much. […]

Many people I know make marriage sound like a walk in the park, which of course most know isn’t the reality. However, with social media, you can be who you want to be or create the life online that you’d like, but that isn’t a reality.

A super belated post from last summer which was one of the highlights to wine country and drinking directly from these barrels to understand the potential of these DRC wines.

It’s one of the busiest days of the year for a chef – along with Christmas and New Year’s eve and people never stop asking what everyone’s plans are. We never really celebrated Valentine’s Day so it isn’t a big deal for me and I used to chastised chef for buying flowers on the most […]

Gastronomy, Semiotics and Paul Pairet’s art of “psycho-taste”. My chef husband got me backstage passes to Ultraviolent on an important evening when chef Paul Pairet and his team were cooking for a table of chefs – and a total of 25 Michelin stars on the dining table, no less. When you’re married to a chef, a visit […]

Here’s a pretty overdue post from last Summer. Run by the former team at Sergeant Recruiter in the 4eme of Paris, which was one of my husband’s favourite spot for something simple and good. The guys apparently fell out and opened  Les Deserteurs- the name is funny and literally means the same in English – the […]

The year and today has ran away from me with so much to do and so little time. But I am going to live a little and finish up today’s blog post which has been on my agenda! Well Top 15 wasn’t easy because there were so many great moments, here are 15 that come […]

I am happy to work through festive as every day I take off is an unpaid day as a consultant. I am so grateful for down time so I can focus on the mountain load of work that was dumped on me before everyone went on holidays, no back to back long conference calls, calls over […]
