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...

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...

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 ...

James Beard Foundation had an incredibly nice introduction of Three Little Halves on their blog today. I had to read it three times until it finally registered that they are talking about me.

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...

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 ...

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...

Duck Triology (Part 2): Duck Meatballs a L’Orange
When I was in the elementary school, our teacher, Miss Zora, would inevitably begin our first morning class with a recap of the previous day’s activities. She would sit at her desk, her class notebook open, and her glasses, as usual, somewhere half way down...

Duck Triology (Part 1): Intense Duck Broth + Duck "Ramen"
Every once in a while I develop a food obsession -- a full blown, OCD-like, as in pureO, obsessive compulsive disorder food obsession. What is a food obsession one might ask, and rightfully so, because it is very important to clarify the issue right away. C...

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.
