Spring Break in August: Shelburne Farms Maple Zucchini Relish + Swiss Chard Pesto with Pepitas + Roasted Plums with Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Chinese Five-Spice
I think that I just broke the world record in weekend cooking. And in weekend everything. Although, I am a bit too tired to think, so this has yet to be confirmed. Anyhow, the story goes like this. On Friday afternoon, Miss Pain and Dr. V departed for their...

The Horta Enigma: Horta + Rye Breads with Anise and Caraway Seeds + Rye Paximadia + Dakos Salad
It’s been two weeks since we came back from Greece and I just cannot let
it go. Cannot let go of the sea and the summer (now that the vacation is
over, one has to get used to the fact that there will be no rest for
the weary until the summer of 2016), ca...

The Evolution of Taste: Lime Scented Thai Soba Soup with Poached Chicken
New recipes can be born out of thin air. Sometimes it is an ingredient that lays the foundation of a new dish. Sometimes it is the season, the mood, or occasion. A craving for a cuisine. Travels and postcards. Pictures, songs and colors. Even a serving plat...

The Bipolar Thomas Keller Chicken + Herbed Tabbouleh
Once upon a time a Russian acupuncturist told me that we all have our very own, very special internal clock. Tic-tock. She said that the clock controls our thoughts and desires, our metabolism, that it governs the way our body functions and the way it respo...

Mother's Day Doodles: Spelt Focaccia with Ancient Seeds
Two days ago I went for a jog along the Hudson River. I wish I could say that I am a runner, but that would be an overstatement the size of Mount Fuji. Being a runner is not exactly in my genetic material, nor it is written on the palm of my hand, hence eve...

Confessions of an Accidental James Beard Award Nominee + Strawberry Semolina Cakes with Lemon and Rosewater Glaze
I am not exactly a culinary professional. I am a Data Scientist, which is another word for “I do not cook food for living, only for dinners”. For living, I write formulas, code and scientific papers. I never had a cooking lesson in my life, unless you count...

The Road to Better Biscuits is Paved with Immagination: Savory Biscuits with Goat Cheese, Tarragon and Chives + Rustic Biscuits with Candied Bacon and Jalapeno
It’s been an auspicious week. First came the package from the James Beard foundation, and in it, neatly frapped and securely placed on a thick piece of cardboard was my James Beard Award Nominee diploma , looking very fancy and respect inducing. It almost m...

An Island Diary: The Summer Pot of Joy (Stuffed Summer Vegetables)
As I dipped my feet into the turquoise water of the Aegean sea, I
thought of Mira. “There is nothing that sea water, salt and sunshine can
not cure,” she used to say. In her book, this miracle-medicine applied
to everything, from cuts and bruises, rashes...

Strawberry Salad with Toasted Hazelnuts, Cucumber and Basil
This is a very short post, because today I do not feel like writing. Dr. V and Miss Pain have vacated the apartment for close to entire day; they are off to the museum, and then to the park, and perhaps another museum (fingers crossed), leaving our habitat ...

Postcards from Rome and Kisses from Perugia: Baci Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles
It’s been a month and a half since we returned from Rome and I have been, surprisingly, evading a post about the trip. Initially, I was over the moon about the photographs I took, eager to write about all the places we visited and the foods we ate, but the ...

Introduction
In my daily life I am a scientist. Not a food scientist, more like a data scientist...

In my other life, mainly on weekends, I am a photographer, illustrator, foodie and blogger for www.threelittlehalves.com.

And every day, I am a student of yoga.
