King Tut

So, we have adopted this cute puppy last week from one of the kennels here. It seems his owner had left him there at the start of the summer and never came back to pick him up and was nowhere to be reached!

Anyways, meet “Tut” short for Tutankhamoun, insanely friendly insanely smart and a rugby lover 🙂

Welcome home pup!!

Yet another Vacation

Its that time again, I’m packed and counting the hours to head to the airport.

 

Destination: Rome.

 

Rome, Italy. The capital of pizza, pasta, gelato, good wine  and all whats yummy. So expect loads of pictures, loads of food stories, and loads of history to come your way in a weeks time.

 

Till then, peace.

Bought, Borrowed & Stolen

Just bought a copy of Allegra McEvedy‘s book about her travels as a chef and about her adventures all over the world. The book is awesome in terms of the photography and content and the recipes she presents from each country she visits are simple fresh and easy to prepare.

Now I won’t hide it, I had never heard of her before, and this was a case of “you judge a book by its title”.

Now it did not help that I for once am a kleptomaniac. But, I’m one with a purpose and with standards. I steal (i prefer to say i collect freely) unique and pretty cutlery, and my aim is to be able to host a dinner for 8 with every single piece of cutlery different than the other.
So you can see it wasn’t hard for me to relate to Allegra and her eclectic knife collection.

Here are a couple shots of the book and its content. Check the book out if you ever get the chance.

She even go tot visit Lebanon and go to one of the prettiest little villages “Jezzine” where they still make the traditional Phoenician cutlery (more of a reason to like this book).

Cool that way

My students at school have the coolest sense of fashion.
This girl in specific is one of the funkiest, coolest and most free spirited kid at school.

This is what she walked in to class in today. And yes they have the flashing sole lights and the roller blade wheel to make her daily travels just a little more exciting!

My hidden Indian Gem

I won’t tell you where it is, but i can tell you that its nicely tucked away ( just like all great restaurants usually are) in the back alleys of a small busy city in the Persian gulf, and I can tell you that they serve there the best Indian food I’ve ever had out here where I live.
