Autumn is approaching and everything around has become beautifully purple, orange and yellow... just like my baby carrots for lunch today. Did you know that even though carrots are considered as one of the most basic vegetables, they are served only in the top restaura...

You might have noticed that in the last few months I have been consistently trying to switch to healthier food and am now very picky when it comes to choosing ingredients. Usually, there are two reasons why people do that: to improve health or to preserve health. In my...

We all have different memories of different people, places and food... and sometimes these memories can be kind of random or even weird. This is my case today. Scotland for me is the most beautiful place on the Earth - the colours of the mountains (and your eyes can ne...

Everyone at least once in his life has tried pizza "Quattro Formaggi", but I bet that almost no one has thought about making a pizza with four different tomatoes! Much healthier and much more exciting from my point of view...

Today I miss my home and my father's breakfast. I remember the cold Russian winter weekends, when my mother and I would have lazy mornings. We would stay in bed until the very last minute when my father would call us for breakfast. His special eggs, simmered in sour cr...
