Greek dessert No.2 Karidopita.

For the last couple of days whenever we asked Roman what he would like to eat, he’d respond with “Cake please Daddy” or “Cake please Papa”. So today, I decided to make him one.   What I made today was Karidopita or walnut cake. A popular cake in Greece made with walnuts and rusks, giving…

Pizza night.

A few weeks ago Papa, Roman and myself went out for Thai with Rebecca from Sugar Snout and her family. Dinner was lovely and for dessert I treated myself to some deep fried ice cream. When my ice cream arrived, Rebecca told me that she could make a better fried ice cream than the one that…

Coffee and the search for the perfect cup.

Coffee is a brewed drink prepared from roasted coffee beans, which are the seeds of berries from the Coffea plant. And what a wonderful drink it is too. You either love it or you don’t. There can be no in-between, not with coffee.  With so many styles and flavours to choose from, there is a…
