My dad rarely cooked for us. The kitchen was completely my mum’s territory. They were both working so it wasn’t that she had more time to cook but it was simply that she just loved being in the kitchen and he loved her cooking (way too much). Still does. We are always teasing him about this. Regardless of that like […]
I mentioned in my last post that one of Sara’s favourite game is playing kitchen. On weekends after she has had her breakfast she likes to “cook” me one. She gets me a cappuccino and a sunny side up with a waffle. An espresso for her dad. Always. If she is feeling a little generous then […]
Like all children, Sara too likes to play a lot of games. Playing Kitchen, Setting up her own restaurant and hosting her food show are three of her favourites. And then there are these. None of these involve real toys. But interestingly food happens to be integral part of all of them. Please note these games […]
I have this little sister Lola.She is small and very funny.Each time Sara picks up any of Lauren Child’s Charlie and Lola books it makes smile.

In their shimmery black costumes with a big blue […]
This March you can find my food stories in the following magazines. Baby’s first bite for the BBC GoodFood Middle East. That first bite when you introduce your little one to the world of solid food is an important time in both the life of a child and the parents. When my little girl became […]

Sara and I like to “play” with our food. Mostly during snack time or over the weekends when there is enough time to indulge in a lazy breakfast. A snowman made up of boiled eggs, a forest full of broccoli trees, a cookie spider, an elephant with a banana for the trunk…you get the drift. It makes […]
