Chocolate Cravings.

Wednesday, May 21st, 2008

A friend asked us in our last days in Peru what we were looking forward to, food-wise. Matt’s answer was cheddar cheese. I couldn’t think of anything off the top of my head and it drove my crazy. I guess I just spent too much time in markets and cooking and focusing on what they […]

Vegetarian Eateries in Lima, Peru

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Prompted by a reader’s question, I thought it would be nice to post a list of veggie places in Lima in an organized manner. We were in Lima for only a few days, mostly following the Lonely Planet guide or, but we found a few that aren’t listed and I would like to share […]

A few meals at home.

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

I haven’t been carrying my camera everywhere, so you’ll have to excuse the lack of photos of food when we’ve eaten out. But here are a few photos of some of our home-cooked meals, in an unfamiliar kitchen with a hovering hostess…making the process of cooking less than ideal. Breakfast at first (when it was […]

Buying locally and supporting more than just the local economy.

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Hopefully everyone knows by now how important it is to buy food and products produced locally. If not, check out this website for a more detailed answer. Overall, it’s better for the environment (fossil fuels used in travelling, more preservatives for shelf life), your health (fresher products contain more nutrients) and supporting your local economy […]

Vegetarians fare well in Lima, Peru.

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Peru, like most countries in the world, are pretty heavy on the carnivorous side and not very understanding of why someone would choose to be vegetarian.  At least that was my impression entering Peru.  That has been blown out of the water.  Meat eaters will have their fill, don’t be mistaken, but there are lots […]

Sugar Substitutions

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

When using processed white granulated sugar doesn’t cut it, try these helpful substitutions: 1 cup of white sugar= 1 cup turbinado/demera/rapidura sugar 6 fl oz maple syrup (reduce a liquid in the recipe by 1.5 fl oz and add 1/4 tsp baking soda) 6 fl oz barley malt syrup (reduce a liquid by 2 fl […]

China Pan: Food of the Gods

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Visiting friends and family in Connecticut, I was able to squeeze in a dinner at one of my favorite places to eat in CT. It’s located just past WestFarms mall, in the Borders Books plaza, tucked in the back. A rite of passage for the vegan hardcore kids, China Pan pleases all. They have food […]

Moosewood Restaurant: a review

Monday, September 17th, 2007

Recently, I got to visit the #1 most enlightened town in America (UTNE), the #1 emerging city in the US, #2 green city in the us, and a vegetarian friendly town, yet to be on a top 10 listing, but perhaps it should be since it is home to the famous Moosewood Restaurant and lesser […]

Day 8: Chocolate Sour Cherry Bread, Roasted garlic Jack, Parmesan Bread

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Our last day! After seven days of constant, all-day bread baking marathon, my freezer is stocked for the rest of the summer and I feel like I have gotten my clogs wet with techniques. I’m so happy we were able to negotiate an independent study. I’ve always wanted to learn more about bread and doing […]
