Peach Milkshake

I love peaches and since they are available in abundance at the moment I am making the most of them. I particularly love the white flesh peaches, they seem to have a sweeter taste and are great in recipes too. For this recipe you do need the ripe ones however for salads the slightly semi ripe peaches work better.

I made this simple tasty Peach milkshake in a jiffy and it tastes absolutely delicious. It also looked gorgeous served in the tropical summer glass tumblers from Sass and Belle. The tumblers come in four different designs and are really pretty.

Master class with Antonio Carluccio and Celebrating 160 years of Cirio

One of my favorite cuisines is Italian food. I love pasta and pizza and I absolutely adore tomato based sauces with oregano, garlic and herbs such as basil. This sort of food is my firm favorite. I also use lots of tomatoes in all my Indian cooking, one particular brand I adore is Cirio. I buy it in bulk from the cash and carry. There is a whole range of tomatoes available in the Cirio brand, passata, plum tomatoes, chopped tomatoes, Pomodorini cherry baby tomatoes, pizza sauce and Filetti tomatoes too.

Dinner at The Gate Restaurant London Islington

The city of London is a haven for dining out, you will find all the cuisines of the world in every nook and cranny. I do enjoy eating out but I am fairly choosy with where I eat as being a vegetarian it's sometimes difficult to get a large choice of dishes on the menu, usually you are limited to  3-4 dishes where my carnivore friends have the whole menu to choose from.

On my recent visit to London with a food blogger friend Heidi from Heidi Roberts Kitchen Talk, we visited The Gate Restaurant, a vegetarian restaurant near Angel station. I had heard a lot about the The Gate Restaurant so I was very excited to actually get the opportunity to visit. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and has a nice lively ambiance. It was pretty busy even though it was a Tuesday night, there was a steady stream of diners which is always a good indication for a restaurant.

India Travels

Last year we were attending a family friend's wedding in Delhi. The wedding functions were spread over 3 weeks so for convenience we rented an apartment in Delhi.  It was going to be our base so that we were not moving our luggage around and were free to explore the wonderful country between all the wedding functions. 

Delhi is the capital city of India, it’s the hub of India, a large cosmopolitan city with lots of malls, fine dining and beautiful sights. On the other hand we loved the local places like Chand ni Chouk , the local eateries and the street vendors.
