I’m not one for baking as I don’t do measurements very well while cooking since it’s always an intuitive and emotional exercise in the kitchen I grew up in. I was quite surprised how easy and quick it was to make an apple tart… but probably would never attempt this myself. My father in law […]

This turned out really yum and not too sweet – I didn’t add any additional sugar, just a table spoon of honey and used a bunch of 6 ripe bananas instead of 4, hoping the natural sugars would make up for it. Chef said it wasn’t sweet at all, but was aromatic. It was perfect […]

The Chinese name for the turnip is white carrot. Gou means cake 糕 and is the homophone for tall in Mandarin. During Chinese New Year, the […]

What else do we do in the heart of Provence where black truffles are in full season and we’re eating with a bunch of international celebrity Michelin starred chefs? They cook, we eat, we discuss what and how to eat next, and we eat again – all this whilst drinking great wines and eating more […]
