    Scenes From an Italian Wedding and Bacon-Wrapped Cauliflower and Broccoli Florets

    Hello there! Long time no talk and no cook! :-) My personal photographer has been buried alive in the office, working long exhausting hours, and I have been busy with a … home project that is taking more than I was expecting.

      Ecliptic Brewing – come for the beer, stay for the food

      … As a gal who’s all about my food and wine pairings I was intrigued to be invited to a beer and food pairing lunch at Ecliptic Brewing last week. Beer and Food pairing? But I just thought beer was for burgers and typical bar food? Nope. Beer can be just as intriguing with a multi-course meal as wine. And John Harris knew this when he created…

      … Somewhat belatedly I've invested in a tagine and heat diffuser. Till now I've been making do with my trusty Le Creuset cocotte. . .

      Lomo

      … I started off with a 450g pork tenderloin, after salting it was down to 340g and now after a month of drying, in the controlled environment of my spare fridge, which doubles as my white wine store, the meat weighs 260g. It is acceptable. I was concerned it might be slightly sweet from the sugar in the cure, but it's mostly salt and paprika…
