Faith restoring Hearty roasted tomato soup

The real beauty of crazy flavourful food is that most of the times you only have to know a few hacks to make it and is often way easier to prep than it seems. Vegetables taste so much better roasted than boiled. That’s because flavours concentrate and you cook them in their own juices rather than forcing water into them. This soup is so easy to make and so rewarding I promise you will want to make it again soon. Advertisements

A taste from the caribbean

Plantain is a cultivar of the musa, commonly known as banana. Plantain have a higher sugar content, are bigger in size, have a dark yellow colour and has a dense rich pulp covered with a thick skin.

Easy Peasy Radiant Ravioli

I remember the first time I made pasta, it was epic, I’m not saying it was perfect, it was EPIC. We had some friends coming over, got our aprons on, cracked numerous eggs, got started and in no time we were all-covered in flour. Many years had to past until I attempted making pasta again, but this time I did a thorough research, cross referenced many recipes and took a plunge. The first result was very decent and like many things, with some practice my skills have improved. I went from making farfalle to linguini, lasagne and ravioli. Making pasta is surprisingly  simple, however you must learn to differentiate simple from fast.

Hanukkah or “the festival of lights” commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem…but wait, what happened to the first one?! Well, Solomon’s Temple of or Mount Zion was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar II in 587 B.C. (Long story!) Hundreds of years later, the Maccabees, a group of Jewish rebels initiated a revolt against the Hellenistic state known as “Seleucid Empire” (which dominated the territory formerly known as Judea) and actually deposed the regime and built a second temple (516 B.C. – 70 A.C.)
