Corona Diaries, Week 323127…

Is it week 8? Week 9? How come has April lasted 5 minutes, but I feel like I’ve been in isolation for about 5 years and yet most of quarantine happened in April? Is time going slow or fast now? And how is it the 5th May today? Do we still clap on Thursdays? Is…

Corona Diaries, Week 4: it’s been too long

This post is to say hi to the outside World and to remind my future self of how it was to live in lockdown. In the future we’ll all refer to this period as the famous COVID-19 lockdown when we learnt how to reset ourself and find what’s really important in life. It’s week 4…

Double Cadbury Chocolate Muffin

I love eating muffins as much as making them. My boredom baking usually starts with a basic muffin recipe – just as it did earlier this week. This time I wanted to jazz up the dough with some chocolate so I created a delicious Double Chocolate Muffin ft. Cadbury cocoa powder and milk chocolate bar….

45-Minute Power Vinyasa Flow

Going to yoga studios or gyms has been out of the window in the past couple of weeks, so… back to good old online yoga. Besides training on a 101 basis with Mark Bonington, my favourite yoga teacher in London, I also try to practice every day on my own. After an extensive research, I…

Rigatoni Caprese

Fresh chives, creamy white mozzarella and bright red tomatoes are the ultimate Italian flavour combination, and the fresh hero ingredients in this delicious recipe. This is simple classic Italian cooking at its very best. Buon appetito! Ingredients 1 piece of Echalion Shallot 1 clove of Garlic 1/2 piece of Green Bullet Chilli 1 punnet of…

Is veganism the answer?

I continue to be overwhelmed by my re-discovered love for the environment and its many, widely different segments: air pollution, plastic pollution, climate change, waste management, animal welfare or food consumption. Whilst these all sound very different, in my head they are very much linked together: as our global population grows (scarily almost doubled in…

Cheese Burger with Wedges and Home-made Slaw

I used to spend so much time and energy searching for the perfect burger, whilst it was in front me the whole time! After I’d first made this recipe, all I could repeat the whole time was “I can’t believe how good this is and… I made it!“. So, please meet the burger that will…

My 5-day Meal Plan for another week of Lockdown

Ahead of next week I’m feeling all prepared and ready for another 5 days of eating. Having read a fair amount about food sustainability in the meantime, researching answers and details about meat, veganism and farming, I reworked this list quite a few times. Although food sustainability is in a very junior phase both globally…

Chicken Thai Green Curry

Thai green curry is my favorite take-away, any time or any day. I didn’t know how easy it was to make it at home until about 2 weeks ago which completely changed the way I think of green curry now. Obviously using curry paste helps and makes it a lot easier to make this dish…

Corona Diaries, Week 3: At least 2 meters apart

London is now ghost town-like with only the bravest left in the streets. Almost empty roads, totally empty double deckers. A city that was once vibrant and energetic is now filled with fear: fear of the unknown and invisible. I am keeping positive and upbeat, though. I’m trying my best to make the most out…
