a taste of adventure

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

J.R.R. Tolkein

The rattle of a donkey cart picking it’s way across the cobbles laden down with a cart piled high with watermelons, the smell of spices in the air, the mountains of brightly coloured, fresh fruit and vegetables, the vendors calling for you to buy their sugar cane juice, their char quay chow, their walnuts… experiencing new foods is an integral part of any travel experience.  Eating together is about so much more than sharing food, it is about sharing cultures.  As well as the kangas and carvings, one of my favourite things to bring home from adventures away is new recipes.

Long after the dust and sand has been washed away, the bags are unpacked, and you’re back in the swing of everyday, a particular smell, a taste, it lets it all rush back in, which is why recipes are such a wonderful way of bringing back the memories, as well as lovely new foods to try and introduce to family and friends!

From the mountains of Morocco to the steppes or Kyrgyzstan, this is my collection, my tastes of adventures….
