I have been accused of creating or showcasing recipes that are too “exotic.” Maybe they’re not wrong. A quick scan through my site will confirm a lack of pizzas, burgers, meatball or casserole dishes. To be exact I have 1 whole wheat pita pizza dough recipe, one lamb white bean and feta meatball recipe and one vegan mushroom “burger” recipe. Oh and I did a plain Jane roast chicken just recently.
If you’re like me, my recipes don’t seem exotic. They’re just part of the everyday. The recipes listed in the archives ARE the meals we eat everyday. Growing up, homemade Chinese food was exotic! However, years of working in great restaurants, many of them serving up a fusion type of cuisine, featuring local whole food ingredients (most that supported the Slow Food Movement), and years of travel and an adventurous personality have lead me here. This type of food makes up a part of who I am.
