Fresh Juices In Bali

I was in Bali for about 10 days recently. I could spend a lot of time talking about the food there (it was excellent), but before I do that I’d like to talk briefly about juices. One of the places we went to several times was a lovely little café in Sanur – Soul in […]

Over the years I’ve tried pretty much every type of coffee making contraption that exists. However recently I acquired a Kalita wave coffee dripper. It’s almost like going back […]

Sunday Cooking Rituals

For the last few weeks I’ve been enjoying cooking at home pretty much 7 days a week. I might have eaten out once or twice or even been “naughty” and ordered in once or twice, but most meals I’ve eaten since I got back to Ireland from Istanbul have been cooked at home. Mostly by […]

Kale, Fresh Vegetables and Grilled Meat

I’m a big fan of kale. It’s a very tasty vegetable and it’s also full of important nutrients – it’s got a lot of vitamins, iron and other things. Combining kale with some other vegetables can do a good job of replacing carb heavy sides, like potatoes, pasta or rice. Earlier this week I had […]
