Book Review – Rose Water & Orange Blossoms

We have a scary collection of middle-eastern (M-E) cookbooks (40+), so we’re reasonably familiar with the food over there. Sadly, the stereotype about M-E food is generally around “OMG, it’s too difficult, I need many spices and expensive ingredients“. This book will prove you the contrary! What we loved in this book right away is that it’s above all a very personal and intimate […]

Stoke Newington Farmers Market, London

We heard many good things about the delicious farmer’s market in Stoke Newington (London), so we jumped on our bikes and off we were to discover that corner of the city. It was a chill winter day, but the omnipresent sun more than made it up for the cold. Although it’s quite small (think around 20-25 stalls), there’s such […]

Crafters Q&A – Salad Pride with David Bez

When one thinks quick and healthy lunch, the first word that comes to mind is “salad”. But then, salads found in shops are often boring, and to eating that every day… ermmm no! But if you put your mind to it, a salad can be a blank canvas for unlimited possibilities, all prettier and tastier than each other.

Marou – Faiseurs de Chocolat

A few months back we found Marou in a cute coffee shop we love in London, and being the reasonable foodies we are, we had to give it a try. Marou is a bean-to-bar chocolatier based in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City, which was founded by Samuel Maruta and Vincent Mourou back in 2011, after meeting in Vietnam […]

Arabica Bar & Kitchen is a cozy and friendly middle-eastern restaurant based in the notorious Borough Market.
