Sourdough Bread

May 4, 2018

Bread, in one form or another, has been one of the main staples for the man from earliest times. The trade of the baker is one of the oldest crafts in the world. About  8,000 BCE the first grinding stone, called a quern, was invented in Egypt. Bread loaves have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. In the British Museum’s Egyptian galleries you can see actual loaves which were made and baked over 5,000 years ago. In the Stone Age, people…

Sourdough Starter

March 29, 2018

  I’m not sure how well you know me (some of you know me really well, some not at all!). For those who don’t: I’m an Australian by choice, heart and the passport, but I have polish roots.

Often, the simplest recipe produces the tastiest result, as it is in this case.

It makes an excellent sourdough bread…

Delicious Christmas Pudding

December 12, 2016

What Christmas would it be without a proper Christmas Pudding?? Silly question, I know! If someone asked me that today I would most likely roll my eyes and think “poor guy had a concussion…” However, if you asked me the same question 20 years ago, I would stare at you like you just fell of Mars. No idea! Back then I lived in Europe (born in Poland, with a short, 5 year long stint in Berlin) and my Christmas was…

Everyone needs few quick (but delicious!) dinner recipes up their sleeve for the weeknights where there is not much time or not much inspiration to cook up a storm. I have a whole page of them, which makes me either very efficient or very lazy cook. I’ll go with efficient. J

Quinoa has been created for these kinds of weeknight meals. It’s easy to prepare, taste delicious, looks gorgeous in salads, and (perhaps most importantly) is very nutritious: high in protein,…
