I love food, it’s what fuels me ( I don’t just mean it in the literal sense but yes that too ). While it all started with an enthusiastic stomach and curious palate, over the last 2 years I’ve taken to the kitchen and really am enjoying the entire process of buying my produce, cooking it and trying to figure out how to improve or innovate. I’ve learnt to appreciate vegetables more believe it or not, 70% ( maybe more ) of the food I cook is vegetarian. I enjoy it but it stems out of sheer laziness because I can’t…

If there was one country I’ve visited  frequently and enjoy immensely it would be Thailand. I find everything the Kingdom of Thailand has to offer either new and exciting or then comfortingly familiar.

While I am now quite familiar with Thai customs and traditions, I have never really experienced any typical Thai festival.

This is a country I find I enjoy more with every visit. While I’ve visited before, just this year alone I was in Thailand on three different occasions.

My most recent trip took me to Thailand where I spent time in Chiang Mai, Koh Samui and Bangkok. All through this 2 week long Thai adventure the one thing I ate repeatedly was their Thai style Basil Chicken and Rice.…

There are some countries that are just blessed with beautiful cuisines. If you visit Italy you are constantly mesmerised with every meal. You visit Singapore and you can dine on a stool on the road and eat from a cart and it will evoke feelings you didn’t even know you could feel. You can dine in any corner of India and experience flavours and textures that will make you want to leap across the table and kiss the cook. Some countries are what I like to call Culinary Blessed and one such is without a doubt – Amazing Thailand. Thai…
