SERIOUS COOKING FOR FUN

Welcome – make yourself at home!
This blog has cool ideas for dishes and clever recipes, and, yes, I’ve tried and tested them all. They’re flavours that I love and have become part of my culinary world, but actually come from all over the world. There are tips on how and why something should or should not be done in order to get the best possible results in the kitchen.  I genuinely find cooking incredibly enjoyable and I’m sure that you find it just as exciting.

I love cooking for friends ( they’re pretty keen on me doing it too ), my family, and of course, myself. I adore trying new flavours and finding out about other cultures through their cuisines. There is something just as magical about a well-made, but simple recipe as a complicated dish . If I had to choose, yes, I’d have ….both. I love my food and especially appreciate artisan chefs. In other words, as Madame Benoît said, “I feel a recipe is only a theme, which an intelligent cook can play each time with a variation”.

  1. i loved a stuffed tomato recipe a friend did from your blog for my son and i when he was visiting me in athens. ive since had to move to italy a big foodie place but really not as much fun without the greeks around. id like that recipe again but in english or maybe i just have to google translate the greek if they will. thanks efaristo para poli.
    oh please get a real old fashioned recipe of the sweets with butter and honey not the usual now use of corn syrup and oil…..i know baclava is claimed to be turkish but i see it as greek and am so disappointed in the fornos to find they use margarine and syrups. i would be willing to pay 5x as much to get the real thing but the bakeries dont even know how anymore>a pity.

    • Stuffed tomatos (both versions) will be in English soon. We will do the real baclava, the real recipe -old fashioned way. Stay with us and thank you so much for the comment ^__^
