I’m Ksenia, and I’m one-third of this wonderful new blog called Saffron & Honey. We hope that this will quickly become the place for you to share in our cooking experiences and offer your thoughts and contributions to our culinary adventures!
Over the next few weeks, each of us will take a turn introducing ourselves. The main point is: we are not professional chefs, but we are definitely professional cooking, eating and everything-food enthusiasts. We approach it like a profession, working at it non-stop and never ceasing to be curious about trying something new.
Each of us brings something new to the table (pardon the pun!). I love to bake and would definitely say that is my main passion, but I do love to cook, especially with fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Priya is often the more experimental of the group and will try her hand at anything that sounds interesting! She has a great hand at spicing, seasoning and developing flavors. She also makes a mean frozen yogurt! (That said, please post that pound cake recipe – I want it!)
Minyi loves working with ‘new’, modern cooking as well as Asian flavors, but is also great at executing classic dishes. She also really values presentation and her plates and dinner, lunch or breakfast tables always look absolutely beautiful.
We all love: great food, new cookbooks, exchanging recipes, making a bit of a mess in the kitchen, ice cream before dinner, and… cheese!
This is a new process for everyone here – though a couple of us are ‘seasoned’ bloggers – so we’ll really be taking your thoughts on board. To that end:
Next up: a recap of our culinary adventures in Antibes last weekend. See you soon!

Hey, me and Shane love the same things, seriously! Ksenia– I remember sophomore year when you bought a block of feta cheese and I made fun of you for days everytime you took that block of cheese out of the mini fridge. At that point, I had never had the pleasure of experiencing feta cheese. May I inform you that I am now a fan of it, and other kinds of cheeses as well?
Shane and I are food enthusiasts for sure–our slogan is: “We don’t eat to live; we live to eat.”
And we enjoy food experiments as well, so I look forward to reading more from this blog, and wish you all luck with it!
Very happy you’re reading along – feel free to share some of the things that you and Shane come up with with the rest of us!
Mmm cheese. I have to say that feta is even far from my favorite haha. Though it’s very nice in salads – we made a rocket, pine nut, feta side salad for dinner tonight, for example.
Hope you are well!
