“You don’t need a silver fork to eat good food.” Paul Prudhomme

The idea to start a food blog came when I discovered that my weight had gone up by 5 kg over a period of two weeks. The point is to create more awareness in myself of what I’m putting inside my body by describing and photographing my food preparations while at the same time keeping a record of my take on classical recipes and also new creations. Simplicity and frugality are the order of the day.
