The Fluffiest Pancake Stack Yet

This recipe was created with the most wholesome of intentions — winning over the affections of my 7 nieces and nephews on Christmas morning. It started the night before… It was a perfect cold winter night, we had just finished decorating the Christmas tree, the house was overflowing with family and love and laughter and…

The Summeriest Egg Salad Sandwich

So egg salad sandwiches remind me of summer days in London. Random, yes. But it’s something that instantly transports me to walking down Piccadilly towards the park, with a bag from Pret or M&S with an egg salad sandwich and chips. Ahem, crisps. And probably a chocolate milkshake. What? Haven’t ya’ll heard of VACATION MODE,…

The Butteriest Mashed Potatoes

Comforting. Unconditional. Your first thought when you’re upset. Your first thought when you’re angry. Always got your back when someone pisses you off. And just plain wonderful. Sounds like I’m describing one of your best friends? Well yes. But ALSO potatoes. These little starchy, nubby, balls are definitely on every list I’ve ever made for…

The Crunchiest Chocolate Brittle

Chocolate. Caramel. Sea Salt. Name a better combination. I dare you. It doesn’t exist. It’s the fucking best. INSERT DRAKE: “And I say the same thing every single time I say, you the fuckin’ best (Ayy), you the fuckin’ best (Ayy) You the fuckin’ best (Ayy), you the fuckin’ best (Ayy) You the best I…

The Tartiest Lemon Cheesecake

It’s been one of those weeks. I’m moody and cranky, and work has been in a slump. So yes, super bleghy. And usually, my mantra is pretty simple: “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Add vodka.” HOWEVER. When life (or your best friend) gives you organic, home-grown lemons the size of your face. You…

The Quickest Avo Sushi Bowl Ever

You guys. I’ve been craving sushi like a crazy person all week. All thanks to the delicious food at Izumi that I ate last Monday. Literally all my friends are tired of me trying to coerce them into going for sushi all week. I’ve eaten it 4 times in 6 days. And to be honest…

The Snuggliest Hot Chocolate

Baby it’s cold outside… For a Bombay girl the word ‘cold’ means 20 degrees is reason enough to wear cute boots and sweaters. But when this Bombay girl ends up in a cold snap in Delhi for Christmas, oh hell. It’s 7 degrees outside, and feels like 0 inside! I don’t have enough layers to…

Fishizzz in London

Wanderlust. Almost very language has a beautifully poetic word for that intrinsic ache of the soul to explore, that yearning to understand the past, that desire for spontaneous freedom. It’s universal. Everyone loves to travel. Have you ever met someone who was all like “Yeah, I don’t dig exploring new places.” No. Probably not. I…

The Nostalgic Chocolate Cake

Were you born before 1990? Remember when you were a kid and it was someone’s birthday, and you would wake up having dreamed about THAT PERFECT BIRTHDAY CHOCOLATE CAKE? The kind that has dreamy thicc chocolate frosting that’s a hint too sweet. The kind where the cake is so fluffy you can poke it and…

The Healthiest Tofu Gyros

Have you been to Greece? Because if you have – you’ve been wholly and completely taken by it’s iconic history, mesmerisingly windswept vistas, the shimmering blue coastline dotted with white, and the oh-so-heavenly beaches. It’s complete and total magic. Add to that the tantalising whiffs of oregano, rosemary, and fresh herbs that waft through the…
