Gibson cocktail - freezer chilled vodka and a dash of vermouth. Garnish with pickled onions.
Kadalá - fry black mustard seeds, cumin seeds, chopped onion, curry leaves, chopped coconut (or unsweetened flakes) and chilli flakes. When the onions turn translucent add a can of drained, cooked chickpeas, chilli powder and salt. Serve hot. With a Gibson 😊🍸👍🏽

  • You know it’s good when there are no left overs! This is my mother’s dry rub lamb rib curry. I want to make it again tonight. So good! 
Marinate overnight in roasted curry powder, tamarind, soy sauce, chillies, garlic, ginger. Squeeze out and save the liquid from each rib (wear disposable gloves if you don’t want your hands to stink), fry for a few minutes then add back the liquid, some water, more curry powder and cook until dry. 😊

  • It sounded like a very loud frog. Poking around in my host’s barn I came across this barrel of fermenting Sangiovese. The noise was the sound of escaping gasses going through a water regulator as the wine made its journey towards becoming a delicious liqueur.  I’ll definitely be returning to taste it! .

  • When you need a little cholesterol the Italians can do it in style. The white stuff on the bottom left is salted lard. Yup, that means fat. Just fat. Totally yummy artery clogging, amazingly delicious fat. Fortunately I  drank enough red wine afterwards to dissolve it all away....😜

  • I awoke at 3:45am to get to Orly Airport in Paris to catch a plane to Italy. At noon I am in the hills of Chianti, ensconced in a tiny winery where the owners are plying me with the contents of their cellar. The sun is shining. Buon weekend! #chianti #raddainchianti #italianwine #italianwines #italianlife #Italian lifestyle
