Bread with butter. Who doesn’t like it? I used to love it. As I said over and over again, I’ve always been a kid of very humble tastes. A nice slice of rustic bread with a generous portion of butter paired with a bunch of grapes was certainly one of my favorite snacks. Moreover, as the story goes, that fella ran away from home with nothing but a slice of bread with butter and a bunch of grapes. I believe he made it through.Read moreMore Tag
Anyways, all my favorite dishes used to have one thing in common – animal protein. Yes, I am not vegan because I used to like fish or meat less than you. And no, I don’t miss it, whatever that means. But even though all the animal products had been cut out of my diet, my fascination with certain products has continued. I still love stews with beans, cabbage and sweet potato, I still like to eat my chickpeas even without any codfish and I still the biggest fan of peas.

It is quite normal for someone to go out to eat something and be delighted with some dish at a restaurant. To eat something that makes you want to come back to that same place, over and over again. Sometimes you wish you had that recipe. Sometimes you couldn’t care less. Probably because you wouldn’t […]Read moreMore Tag
I have always been crazy about peanuts. Pretty much anything with peanuts in it. When I was a kid, I use to drink Coca-Cola with peanuts. Like, literally stuffing the bottle with roasted peanuts and then drink it. Sounds stupid, I know, but every kid around would do the same. It was probably my favorite taste. […]Read moreMore Tag
