Paris in Four Hours

Paris in Four Hours

Ah! Ce Paris! I want to stay for months. Watch people come and go while sitting in a bistro on the bank of the Seine. Spend days lost in the corridors of the Louvre. Wait for hours to get up on the Eiffel Tower. Buy myself a real French baguette… You shouldn’t visit Paris like...
Tallinn, My Love

Tallinn, My Love

I knew nothing about Estonia. Except that it’s up North and very cold. I didn’t know how beautiful is Tallinn. Nor that I’ll come to love it so much. The streets, the walls, people, the number 2 tram, icy wind, -20°C…
Our Growing Egde / Oko Resto

Our Growing Egde / Oko Resto

Only a very few recognize food as the high adventure it really is. The excitement of discovery of a rare spice in a shop. The adrenalin rush while alive, moving scorpion on a stick is about to be deep-fried and served. An everlasting dilemma about the contents of that dish you had.
Ibiza for Beginners

Ibiza for Beginners

Sant Antoni de Portmany You don’t go to Ibiza for food. You go for the beaches, parties, sun and some of the world’s best clubs. Food is a mere fuel you burn in order to survive the crazy lifestyle. You wake up in the morning and go to the beach, then in the evening you...

How we Celebrated Christmas in Estonia

You go to another part of the world and by all means have to have some traditional item. For example, I wanted to celebrate this Christmas as proper as possible. A couple of dear people...
Another Visit to Sumrakovac

Another Visit to Sumrakovac

Red Currant Trifle

Red Currant Trifle

We picked our four shrubs of red currants almost a month ago. And some yet not ripe berries were left on the bottom of the shrubs for later. When I picked them recently, there wasn’t enough for the proper desert, so I improvised. I combined the ingredients I had at home and made a desert...

More Food from Istanbul

More Food from Istanbul

We are still in Istanbul. A city on two continents. Full of mosques, vendors and bazaars. We walked the halls of Big Bazaar. Carpets, nargile, spices… And lamps. Ziya Baba When it came to food we’ll eat while on the road, the idea was to skip the restaurants serving continental food for the less courageous...
