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!
