The ghost of menus past

I’ve covered around 25 cuisines on this blog now, and one of the best things that has come of it is that the food we eat on a regular basis has changed (and gotten much better!). Despite incidences of my cooking becoming increasingly rare since I started working again and Mr stopped, there are particular…

Vegan Italy in Photos

Not too much chatter from me today, because I have neither recipes nor reviews to share. Italy has such good produce, pasta and pizza, that we hardly went out at all, I was so happy to cook simply.
