For whatever reason I am going to write about another soup, something new, something I've never cooked before. I truly love to experiment with new ingredients, new recipes ... I am never worried I might not like it or my husband might not like it ... the truth is that ... if you don't try something new... you will be stuck in an illusionary circle of "safety" and in time boredom and even intolerance (but about this at another time) Continue reading

Although it is only mid August .... the preparations for autumn supplies has already started. I will always remember the smell of the roasted aubergines, roasted red peppers and long red peppers we call "capia" peppers in Romania. Zakuska was made by the majority of women, each using their own recipe, sometimes recipes well guarded as it was part of the family tradition and traditions ... are priceless. Continue reading

Red ... a colour I love ... one colour, many shades ... each telling another story ... the beetroot red for me is the colour of flamenco .... deep, passionate, mysterious...... the colour of deep roots coming from beyond the times .... coming with the wisdom of the feminine lineage!...

I am an artist! Colours mean a lot to me ... they heal, nurture, talk to me .... they call me and not the other way round. Green is not at all a colour I use in abundance in my paintings .. on the contrary .. and it is the same with my clothes ... up until 2 days you couldn't have found anything green in my wardrobe. But things have changed ...... 2 days ago I've felt an intense need for green in various shades ... so I have now a baggy green summer dress, Turkish trousers, a funky bag .... and yesterday I felt the need to cook ... a green soup ... all o Continue reading

"Maybe my passion is nothing special but at least it's mine" - Tove Jansson I have to admit that before December 2015, i had no clue who Tove Jansson was.

There are times in our life when one simply cannot find the need or energy to write ... when words are kidnapped by a particular somehting that holds them as hostages. .... no ransom is required ... they are simply gone behind a veil .... this is when images replace the words ... images and movement .... Painting and flamenco seemed to have been my loyal companions over the last few months .... allowing my tears and joy to be expressed freely. Continue reading

What appears on a painted canvass, what you speak of, the words you write, the fragrances of the spices that rise from what you cook, are all reflections of a past spent somewhere, sometime, a past spent in a buried context. Colours have differing connotations for me......... red can mimic drama but not always, green a life among beautiful hills, blue and white a life lived near the sea. My work is based on untold life stories, a fusion of colou Continue reading

A few days ago, on a day trip to Brighton and a usual visit to my favourite organic food shop Infinity Foods, i came across a product called Freekeh. It is my habit to buy at least one product I've never came across before from this unique shop so ... Freekeh it was this time. The name sounded familiar to me but I had no idea where from until i searched it on line. And then ... bingo ... memories came back to me. Continue reading

I came across a story I really liked in John Richardson's biography "A Life of Picasso". Here it is "Pablo Picasso was notorious for sucking all the energy out of the people he met. His granddaughter Marina claimed that he squeezed people like one of his tubes of oil paints. You'd have a great time hanging out all day with Picasso, and then you'd go home nervous and exhausted, and Picasso would go back to his studio and pai Continue reading
