Remember Rosemary!

I am a great fan of the smell and taste of rosemary. It’s such a kick ass herb. And I’m lucky enough to have a chance to use it all year long. It’s an evergreen plant, native to the Mediteranian region, with a unique pine-like flavour and aroma that make it a good complement for […]

Couscous for the couscous haters

I know quite a few people who hate couscous. Even the word itself is strange. Me, on the other hand, always keep making it just ‘cause it goes well with almost everything. There’s always a pack of that instant gold to be found in my kitchen. Foodies will scream: i-n-s-t-a-n-t. Yeah, instant.
