Paris (Aug. 14 and 15)

Our Paris adventure continues with a trip to Basilique du Sacre Coeur, one of the city’s most famous landmarks. If you’ve seen Amelie, you’ll know that one of the important scenes in the movie was filmed in this place. There was a throng of tourists visiting the basilica on this hot sunny day. You can’t… Continue reading Paris (Aug. 14 and 15)

Two Days In Brussels

What do you do when you’re in Belgium for a couple of days for work? The answer: eat and drink! Belgium is famous for its exceptional chocolate. Some say it is the capital of this indulgent treat.

Kitchen Diaries: Burger Day

Last night I dreamt I was at a friend’s burger place. Now I don’t know if that or the coincidental fact that it’s International Burger Day (we didn’t know there was such a thing; we just found out afterwards) somehow influenced our food choice for the day.

Bento: A Fun Way to Eat

Last year I took up several hobbies and bento making was one of those. Making these delicious creations takes quite a lot of cooking and prep time because I usually fill one box with various components. But the good news is it’s not as difficult as it looks. All you need are creativity, some tools… Continue reading Bento: A Fun Way to Eat
