Learn to Cook and Eat the Caribbean Way


So far I've been eating and blogging about ethnic restaurants here in London, but I hadn't really tried my hand at making it myself. Last weekend though, I was invited to Angella's Kitchen supper club cooking class.

The event was held at Battersea's London Kitchen Project which helps budding chefs getting started in the food industry.

Low FODMAP at Sezamee


Just a heads up, this post is not about ethnic food as such, but about Low Fod Map Food at Sezamee. The owner of Sezamee is from Turkey, so there is the ethnic angle if you want. The owner is also a friend of mine, and a little bit of blog support is never a bad thing, right?

So what is Low FODMAP food, you ask?

FODMAP stands for Fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides and polyols. In other words, they are a collection of short chain carbohydrates and sugar alcohols found in foods naturally or as food additives. So think fructose, fructans, galacto-oligosaccharides, lactose and polyols like sorbitol and mannitol.

Tints of Blue Hotel in Bangkok


One thing I noticed when I was last in Bangkok, was how modern it had become since the last time I was there. Granted, that was 20 years ago. With that there were so many cute boutique hotels to choose from, which is how I ended up finding Tints of Blue Hotel in Bangkok.

The Tints of Blue Hotel is off the main Sukhumvit road where you will find lots of restaurants, shops and even malls. It does take a little bit of effort to find the hotel, but once you get there, it's worth the walk. (Or the yelling at the taxi driver because he can't find it.) And if you feel that the alley is a bit too dark after night falls, the hotel offers free tuktuk rides to the main road and back to the hotel.

Spanish Food at Casa Manolo

A new job comes with exploring new places to lunch at. And this week I decided to try out the Spanish food at Casa Manolo.
