This one is a favourite with my family and relatives when we go camping or on tours through the Australian outback. The baked beans are the main feature, and very filling for the children in our group. It's a very extravagant meal that is easily prepared over the camp fire. We often find that we need very little lunch or dinner for the rest of the day!
The mountain featured in the background is Mount Connor. This is located near Curtin Springs in the Northern Territory.
Over the past several years Avocado Toast is has become extremely popular, especially in California. It's fast, easy and anything goes, which means people are very creative using their favorite toppings.
Personally, I prefer mine without the toast but still get creative and enjoy trying different herbs and vegetables to compliment the avocado's mild taste.
Cappelletti! Typical pasta from Emilia-Romagna, my home-region. In my family we used to make them all together for Christmas and cook them in broth, which is also the way I prefer to eat them! I need to learn how to make them in my own... Maybe it could be one of my new year resolutions!
Global Cuisine: "Full English", "English Breakfast", "Fry Up"—whatever you decide to call it, this is a classic UK dish. People take it so seriously that it can become a controversial issue if one uses the wrong type of potato, tomato, or puts the beans in the wrong place. Keeping me warm and full all day, this is my favorite thing to indulge in when traveling in England.
It's holiday season already, and I wanted to illustrate a recipe for traditional Russian salad that is still a must-have for New Year's dinner in my family.
It's a layered salad that is usually arranged on the platter in a certain order. Pickled sliced herring is laid on the bottom of the platter, and covered with layers of grated ingredients: fresh onion, boiled potatoes, carrots, eggs, and beets.
Salad is dressed with a mixture of sour cream and mayonnaise and decorated with grated egg yolk.
I was born in the Soviet Union and decided to bring that atmosphere to my illustration.
In Azerbaijan, food is the center of everyday life and people here love eating. Since, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, they know how to add variety to it. For starters a well prepared tea is a must. Usually, it`s a black tea that can be flavoured with a slice of lemon, cloves or wild thyme. Other basic elements of a Azerbaijan breakfast are bread and cheese. Tendir is a bread made in a clay oven. Lucky you if you had a chance to try it right after it was baked! Cheese is another important part of the breakfast. Usually you can try 3-5 varieties during the meal. Also, you can enjoy freshly baked bread with farmed made butter and honey. Yum! And, for sure, you have to save some room for the main dish of the breakfast: Pomidor Yumurta - eggs and tomatoes, sautéed in butter. After that a long Azerbaijan breakfast should end with a cup of of the black tea in a traditional tea cup - armudu.
I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into the first time I happened upon a Chinese hotpot restaurant, but the deliciousness is something everyone should experience! Hotpot has everything you could ask for in a great meal - a shared dinner filled with a variety of fresh ingredients that you get to cook yourself right at the table in a simmering pot of perfectly seasoned broth while socializing with your friends and family. Yes, please!
GLOBAL CUISINE: I love to bake but I was always intimidated by cream puffs. Turns out they’re one of the easiest pastries ever! ...& so versatile! Make mini savory ones for appetizers or cream filled ones for dessert. Either way they always get a lot of OOOH-La-Las!
FAVE MEMORY: For as long as i can remember my mom has made this absolute classic for every family celebration we have - it would not be a party if there wasn't a pavlova!! She has offered to make other things - she makes a mean trifle and is an excellent baker - but my sister and I insist on the pavlova, and our kids love it too now. It's completely delicious, surprisingly simple to make and looks really impressive on the table. Crisp meringue, with a gooey centre, lashings of cream and a mountain of fresh fruit - it's an absolute stunner. It has to be the Delia Smith recipe as mom swears by it and even the book itself holds so many memories for me.
This soup was my favorite during childhood and I have sweet memories about pulling the letters to the rim of my plate and making up words and phrases... It was also a fun way to say something nice to my mom and thank her for the delicious soup.
My favorite food memory has to be the terrace dinners during my childhood. Indian Homes have terraces or rooftops, where we could enjoy and relax on beautiful evenings. My parents home has the most beautiful rooftop with a small kitchen area. My dad loves gardening and we had a lot of plants, roses, jasmine flowers filling the air with their beautiful scent. On many such nights, we would all go up on the moonlit terrace and my dad would make the best spicy Omelette. In today’s fast paced life, we tend to forget the little things about our childhood, but this challenge helped me relive those memories.
Fave Memory - I grew up in the British countryside an didn't try spicy fragrant Asian flavours until I was all grown up. I will never forget that first meal, my life was changed forever, and Asian cuisine has become a part of who I am and what I eat. I cannot imagine what my life would be like without ginger, garlic and chilli!
