Romanian comfort food (part II, the dishes)

Romanian food (like any other cuisine) was influenced in its development by its neighbors and any country that had anything to do with it at any time. Turkish, Greek, Russian, Bulgarian, German and Hungarian cuisines helped Romanian cuisine grow a larger list of dishes. Several ingredients, spices and recipes were introduced during our long history and adapted to our culture and needs.However, I will not write about gastronomy history here because I am not that gifted. I will write about... continue reading

Ultra Violet and the food

My workmate Ioana wrote here about the color of the year 2018. And this is an interesting article, trust me.I don't know about you, but I am as happy as a kid eating a huge ice cream because Ultra Violet is the one for the next year. I love violet so much that one of my home walls is painted in this color. My husband made me a surprise and chose this color for one of the living room's walls. I used it many time as a background for my food photos. Anyway, I am not here to write about interior... continue reading

Romanian comfort food (part I - the ingredients)

If I should make a count about Romanians' favorite ingredients or foods I would get to a very simple conclusion: meat (a lot of it, mostly pork), mamaliga (polenta), telemea (a Romanian cheese, a bit similar to feta, but better in taste - sorry Greeks, but it's true), tomatoes, fresh onion and garlic.You might think it's simple, but we, Romanians, are taking our tomatoes very seriously. Almost everybody with a garden or even a small corner in a balcony or kitchen or yard, will plant... continue reading

I'd like an overhead food photo please!

To me, an avid gourmand, food photography is not only a real treat, but also a guilty pleasure. I spend quite some time looking at food photos and I can assure you it is a very healthy habit. It keeps me away from actually eating everything I'd like to taste so I just love good photo feasts!They say that in order to feel like eating, you first have to like what you see on your plate. There's nothing more inviting or appetizing than an awesome food photo. Food photography is something to savor... continue reading

All about chocolate

It says that 99% of people love chocolate, other 1% lies.

10 reasons to love bacon

Maaan, I don't know about you but I love bacon. A bit smoked, a bit crispy, with that gorgeous sound it makes in the pan, bacon has driven many people crazy since the first time it was introduced in the cookery. Now, I know that many nutritionists and doctors are preaching that bacon is unhealthy, but there's this little voice in me that tells me these:1. The asparagus/avocado/green beans/pimientos I'm eating tastes better if it's wrapped in bacon slice. 2. The pea/pumpkin/beans/corn... continue reading
