Cooking up a festive dinner never has been easier.
We’ve made a festive bird roast by accident. Almost a full-scale Thanksgiving dinner. How is it possible to accidentally cook a feast? Well, it all starts with me finding a very special bird perfect for roasting. Then I watch an episode of Jamie Oliver’s Christmas feasts, get inspired, improvise a little and boom, here we are. Even though there are many components, everything is child’s play to prepare. And the result is worth the effort ten times. Give it a try!

Indian spices meet a Portugese twist.
Nothing beats a nice curry if you ask me. I remember the first time when I read a recipe of the Vindaloo curry, thinking “wow, that’s strange!” It packs an interesting punch in the form of vinegar, which was introduced to India when Portugal used to have colonies in the land of spices. The Portugese seem to love their vinegar and they used it to remind them of home and as a natural way to preserve goods in a time long before anything like a refridgerator. I am glad about this fusion, as it makes for a delicious curry you definately should give a try!
