A to Z of 2016.

A to Z of 2016.

Today is the last day of 2016 and I want to take some time to pause and reflect on the last twelve months here at Orange Kitchens. A lot has happened over the last 365 days; opportunities and readers that I am grateful for, experiences and people that I have learnt from, ideas and experiments that […]

Looking back at 2014.

2015 is three days away. Before we make new year resolutions let us look back at 2014. Wish you a 2015 full of magic, memories and madness. Images: If you like any of the pictures on the blog and would like to use those please write to me. I put in hours of work behind each […]

Food lessons from Dad.

Food lessons from Dad.

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 […]

Meeting George.

Eat.Read.Love.

A few days back I turned a year older and my totally crazy sister made my day extra special by treating me to cupcakes that made my heart go flutter flutter.  I love to cook. I dream about food and for the past two years all that I have read about is food. She got these melt […]

Confession time.

Confession time.

I have a bookrack next to my bed that houses my modest collection of cookbooks/food memoirs. Ahem…82 when I last counted them. Each time I order a new one I am asked why do you need so many cookbooks/food memoirs? Call it a fetish, weakness or whatever…psychological disorder, anyone? But the truth is that there […]
