Private piazzas and unknown alleys: Dinner on the Amalfi Coast

As anyone knows, when you’re on holiday dinner is truly the main event. The meal you fantasize about in the weeks leading up to your trip, budget carefully for and research excessively. After a hotel breakfast and on-the-hoof lunch, this is when you’ll crack open a bottle of wine, help yourself to the bread basket, order a starter (or two), and decide on the most delicious, most indulgent thing on the menu. After all, whether you’re exploring your temporary home at length or just lounging by the pool, holidays have a way of stoking the appetite. Read more…

Heart of Veg

Heart of Veg

I know it’s not the prettiest Valentine’s Day heart around, but considering the random and misshapen assortment of vegetables I had to work with, I think it’s pretty cute. Read more…

It’s Starting: Holiday Oatmeal Cookies

Holiday Oatmeal Cookies

Look, I tried. To the best of my ability, I attempted to hold off the holiday season until next month. It’s only mid-November, and nobody really wants to be bombarded with Christmas recipes yet. But through a (misguided) desire to review my copy of Nigella Christmas on Kitchlit, I accidentally opened the floodgates. Because reviewing means recipe-testing, and recipe-testing means recipe-posting. So here I am, waving the white, red and green flag in surrender: it’s started. Bring on Christmas! Read more…

Apologetic Veg

Peace veg

I admit it: I’ve been a lazy, lazy blogger these past few days. I offer you, my lovely readers, the above vegetables as a peace offering. Forgive me?

I returned from my North American adventure on Tuesday morning, with the best of intentions to jump straight back into the blogging game. Working against me, however, was a bad cold (am I the only one who routinely gets ill on long-haul flights?), jet lag, a refridgerator devoid of nutritients and a decided lack of culinary inspiration.

Kitchenist on holiday

I had hoped to get another recipe posted before I fly off on holiday tomorrow, but with all the running around I’ve been doing I haven’t even had a chance to eat, let alone write about food.

That will surely change tomorrow, though- I’m off for ten days of family, relaxation, and yes- wonderful food. (Though my Mum still can’t get her head around my vegetarianism- I have a feeling I’ll be doing rather of a lot of “picking the meat out” over the next few days.) My trip back home covers both Canadian Thanksgiving and a good friend’s wedding, so hopefully I’ll have some delicious stories to share when back in London on the 19th.

Until then, bon appétit!

Kitchenist on holiday

In a few short hours I’ll be on a plane to New York City, where I’m going to spend a few days sightseeing, eating and shopping with some old friends. I won’t be posting while away, but will be back with the delicious stuff on Thursday, May 28th.
