PEA SMASH BRUSCHETTE + NEW BEGINNINGS

I love Spring. And I love it for the most clichéd of reasons: because it signals a new beginning, a clean slate, a fresh start. I’m not one for new years’ resolutions (you can decide to make a change any day of the year), but Spring Equinox, for me, is when I always feel the most alive (it helps that the weather in Dubai in the Spring is spectacular: blue skies and light breezes and sharp edges), and when change seems to make its way—slowly but surely— into my life. This Spring, I went back to Sri Lanka for ten day ... Read More
      

BITS & PIECES | 01.03.16

It’s been a manic month since I came back from holiday, but I couldn’t be more grateful for the busy-ness. It’s helped me focus on the things I really care about, and also made me realise there’s a few things I’ve been neglecting. My birthday a couple of weeks ago saw me turn the big three-oh(!), and while it was a little bit scary, I’m enjoying being exactly where I am in life. Here are five moments captured over the past week that I’m so grateful for. I hope you ... Read More
      

HOW TO ASSEMBLE A FESTIVE CHEESE PLATTER + AN INTERVIEW WITH CHEESE EXPERT FRANCOIS ROBIN

It’s the festive season, and if you’re anything like me then you’ve probably got a calendar packed full of cocktail parties to go to, and dinner parties to host. One of my go-to things to make—and I use the word “make” loosely here—is a nice, festive cheese platter. I like it because all it requires is a few moments of assembling things, and it’s stress-free. All you need is a visit to your local cheese counter, and a well-stocked pantry. And though they require little effort, when done properly cheese plat ... Read More
      

HOW I PREP FOR THE FARMER’S MARKET

I am happiest in the kitchen when the farmer’s market is up and running from mid-November to mid-April. I love waking up early on the weekends and going to the market to pick out fresh, organic produce directly from the farmers. I love grabbing a coffee and a sandwich (or pastry) and sitting in the warm Dubai-winter sun. What I love the most is having delicious, fresh produce to cook with—it’s a welcome change from a lot of the limp supermarket offerings during the summer. Here’s what I do to get ready so that I ca ... Read More
      

BITS & PIECES | 13.07.15

I thought I’d ease back into blogging with a quick Bits & Pieces post to give you a glimpse of what I’ve been up to this past week. Those of you who follow me on Instagram know that I’m in Italy for the summer, which has been unbelievably hot so far. This past week has been slightly less eventful than most; all my friends who were visiting have left, and I’ve been settling back into a more leisurely routine and catching up on work. Here are snapshots of happy moments from the past few days. {si ... Read More
