As I leaned over to look out the window; my eyes were bathed with the sights I had heard so much about; vast green landscapes, acres and acres of vineyards, scant buildings poking in the distance all encompassing a historic monument, a magnificence that was built in 1889. Continue reading
We all have a good bag of favorites and over 2 dozen bookmarked recipes that we like to go back to every now and then; either to feed our eyes with or our tummies. My food craze has sent me to having over 60-70 bookmarked recipes that I often just end up looking at to muster some motivation.
Over the past year, I have had the opportunity to mingle, get to know and really be influenced by incredible people, chefs and friends. I have chosen a handful of my favorites at the moment created by some talented women.These ladies know their food, they understand the complexities of taste and are more than knowledgable when it comes to pairing different flavors together and they were kind enough to let me re-share these with you.
In no specific order;
Firstly, there is this delicious wreath; no not a decoration piece (although its well worth displaying this for its sheer visual appeal); but its a Garlic, herb and parmesan wreath by a dear friend and blogger Ms Sally Prosser, blog: My Custard Pie. The reason this is on my list is because I have been dying to bake bread for the longest time and it has been on my list of resolutions for this year. Christmas is only 2-3 months away (funny how quickly this year has vanished) so enough reason to practice this recipe before the year fizzles away.
For the winners of the above competition
With the blink of an eye, a few pinches of this, a few handfuls of that and a few sprinkles of love with a garnish of passion, this year has just gone past right under my nose. I was hoping to dish out a good 100 posts in the least considering we’re talking about a whole year!!! Out of 365 I should have been able to showcase a few more; but I am going to be self-satisfied and give myself a pat on the back and be proud that I accomplished putting out 50 posts (slightly over) despite a busy regime, a full time work schedule, bikram yoga, salsa dancing and dog walks. But yeah, its a handsome number don’t you think?
So over this year as I look back some of these posts really brought back some tender memories… some of them almost bringing a tear to my eye, only to see how much passion I have put towards EZ. I don’t mean to brag but I am quite amused by what I feel for Eaternal Zest. I initially started this as a hobby, a diary of sorts to document recipes, interesting finds and jot down a few playful memories. but this is now my baby; I can’t let go, and I won’t give up on this, EZ has evolved into much much more.

Anything organic is always healthier, no toxins, no adulterants, no hormones and it does make a BIG difference. The fruits are sweeter and the vegetables are crunchier and the meat don’t have odd flavors and smells to them.
My main inspiration of organic cooking was brought on by Jamie Oliver. I absolutely adore him, and his food… well it just looks so simple, easy and something you can prep up with a Continue reading
Food… I am really not sure where to start but here it is. There is nothing I DO NOT like about food; From the way it looks to the way it smells to the textures that dance across my tongue with every bite; yes food satisfies a lot more than hunger for me.
I dont believe I am an exceptional cook by any means, but I am constantly intrigued with the combination of new tastes and smells. With photography as my hobby and design as my career, I am always concerned with the visual appeal of the dish. I will have to admit I Continue reading
