Cauliflower Couscous with Baharat Spice Fennel Seeds, Pumpkin, Almonds and Cranberries

We’ve entered the holiday season! With Diwali just past we are heading towards Thanksgiving, Chanukah/Hanukkah and Christmas so I can imagine there is a lot of scampering going on all around the globe and the kitchens in many households are already filled with aromas of sweet baking, sugar and...

Green Tea Honey Saffron Poached Pears on Skyr

When people find out or realize that food is not only my hobby but also work – that I blog about food, shoot and style food and obviously cook with a lot of food – they are often curious about the kind of cuisine I cook at home. Probably expecting me to define myself to one specific cuisine –... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

Egyptian Lentil Soup with Pumpkin and Caramelized Onions

People say, the second half of our lives will seem a lot shorter than the first. Many people will arguably confirm this feeling. I presume a reason for this could be that many things in our daily lives become more and more routine. Maybe that’s why in retrospect years seem like just a few...

Dubai Workshop 2015: Buzzing with Energy!

Dubai this time had a very different aura to it, compared to the past years. For the first time I felt as if the city had a flow, it seemed to groove to a distinct vibe – almost as if after years of searching Dubai had found its character. The city proudly projected a balance it has seemed to have... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

Zucchini Noodles with Garlic Shrimps, and Olive Caper Slow Roasted Tomato Sauce and Feta Cheese

Are you on a diet currently? If you are then I just want you to know you are totally untrendy. Diets were a thing of the yesteryears.

Wine Braised Herb Chicken with Roasted Grapes

It could not have been a more perfect day for our day tour on the river Saale. Gorgeous blue skies with a warming sun promised to make the trip unforgettable. Packing the kids into the car I picked up my friend at the Weimar train station and we headed to Camburg, where we met with Mario Brömel who... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

Cherry Pistachio Meringue Tart

To me it never really feels like summer until cherries arrive in the markets. Cherries announce the beginning of the stone-fruit season and for me this kicks-off my favorite fruit season of the year. For a short time cherries are the stars before apricots, peaches and plums arrive and take over... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

Incredible India: Colors, Light and People

India has a strong influence on the senses of those visiting the country – it is loud, it is colorful and it is very multifaceted, a country with incredible paradoxes.

Summer is full on here in Weimar. We’ve got temperatures hitting close to 40 degrees C and the weather is like on a tropical island. It feels good – almost like an extended vacation overseas.

After an amazing 3 weeks in India it feels good to be back home! Catching up on many things again and getting back into the swing of things for now.

Bollywood Cooking: Vegetable Split Pea Dal, Spiced Cauliflower Pumpkin and a Kumquat Chutney

A humble feast! Meals that take me back to my nana and nani’s veranda on hot summer days in their Delhi home. As we arrived to spend several weeks of our vacation with the rest of the family I was always sure that the forthcoming days were going to be filled with lots of food where the hub of the...

Riverside: London Photography and Styling Workshop 2015

London, always such a bustling and hip place, was the location for my second workshop this year. I always love coming here for short visits – perfect to soak up the energy of the city. While London is very much about urban dynamism, I also love the open-wide spaces, leafy escapes and the riverside... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

White Asparagus and Strawberry Salad with Vanilla Kissed Salmon Steaks

After having lived for several years in the Breisgau region, one of the things I thought I would miss the most when I moved to Weimar, would be my beloved asparagus freshly harvested almost right at the doorsteps. Baden-Württemberg after all is known as Germany’s asparagus capital. A few years... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

September 2015: Food Photography and Styling Workshop in Sintra, Portugal

Sintra is like a page taken from a fairy-tale book with rippling mountains, misty forests, exotic gardens and glittering palaces. It is a Unesco World Heritage–listed center, dotted with pastel-hued manors wrapped into luxuriant hills that roll down to the blue Atlantic. I have chosen to end my...

Imperial: Vienna Photography & Styling Workshop 2015

What a few months these have been! It seems I have hardly sat still long enough to really feel … still. I’ve been loving the movement of the past several weeks especially as I have just completed two workshops. First up in April was wonderful Vienna, a city that in all its poise and ease has...

Dandelion Avocado Gazpacho with Deep-water Prawns

If you are a fanatic for the perfectly manicured lawns then you are probably extremely wary about the ubiquitous common dandelions! Our early memories are probably those of threading the vibrant yellow flowers on a string to wear as necklaces or trumpeting on the stalks until the milky liquid stuck...

Gyros Style Tacos and Tzatziki

A shawarma, a doner kebab or gyros – all cut from the same vertical spit? Not at all! While one will find the concept of meat stacked on a skewer and grilled on a vertical rotisserie in many variations, the intricate blend of spices, herbs and condiments and the kind of meat or poultry used make...

Easter: Orange and Pistachio Sweet Challah

Easter for me is an adopted festivity. Being an Indian Sikh I took to this colorful spring tradition when I married my German husband almost 17 years ago. As a Sikh we are a very tolerant religion and are more than open in celebrating the rituals and traditions of other religions. I was raised... [Read the rest of this post on my website]

Breakfast of Champions - The Big Breakfast Post

  Breakfast is for champions! And according to the trend it is sneaking its way into the other meals of day. We have a tendency to put an egg on everything and serve up “breakfast for lunch/dinner” – a trend that I follow myself, especially when the traditional eggs, bacon, grilled tomatoes...
