Cooking perfect chicken in the oven!

Chicken cooked in the oven is an easy alternative to cooking on a grill! It can be surprisingly tricky to get perfect results... Crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside and flavour all through! So here are few tips that may help. * Get the chicken to room temperature before marinating. * Dry the chicken thoroughly before applying marinade.

Beet Kvass and Fermenter's Hands!

Recently, one of my friend proudly showed me her Gardner’s hand! Rough, tough and lot of character. I looked at mine and felt mine didn't tell any story. I do many things, but none really leave much of a mark. Then, I was making my next batch of Beet Kvass.. that’s when I saw my hands! They were colored red… I realized, a fermenter’s hands are colored with the colors of life! Now I feel happy! Coming to beet kvass. Beet kvass is a fermented drink that is made by fermenting be

Mutton and the art of taking your time..

I cook for two reasons.. one for making food ready to eat day to day.. the other, for the joy of it! When I cook for fun, I don’t like recipes that get done very quickly!

The magic of hand blending!

I have always pursued ways to make cooking easy, fun, fast, healthy and easy to clean up! I have discovered a lot, learnt a lot and have come to rely on few tools that are my go-to for everyday cooking.

Guacamole.. how to do right!

What is your go to breakfast? Mine is eggs and avocado. Eggs are flexible and can be cooked so many different ways. When you are in rush, just break them on a pan with some butter.. sprinkle some salt and pepper, you are done! I eat eggs this way with avocado and may be some home made siracha.
