March 2017 – Pescetarian Pleasures

Since the recipe book Soul Spices came out in November 2016, Pescetarian Pleasures has seen Anjalina Chugani everywhere!

She travelled extensively and lived abroad…

Barcino Brewers began in 2011, on a rooftop in El Gòtico. It started with 3 friends, who were bored of the beers available, here in Barcelona. They brewed beers for themselves to enjoy and to supply their own bars at the time. It has grown and expanded since then and they now offer 4 different beers, named…

Just the colours alone are enough to make you want to make this dish. You wait until you try it! This recipe is not heavy with carbs, and is light and delicate in every sense! The Sea Bass is delicately flavoured, then the garlickey sweet potato gratin is sweetened with coconut milk. The fish and…

This post is a bit of a nod to my love of this fine fruit, the blood orange! I´m always super excited when they come into season, forgetting about how great they taste, they are just so damn good to look at! The deep crimson colour that seems to seep through to the outer peel,…

Pescetarian Pleasures met Ella and Alberto recently. They started cooking together 3 years ago, hosting food events on http://www.eatwith.com and running their own cooking workshops. They are a truly inspiring couple and we had to find out more about their journey. One thing that comes across when talking to them is how important it is for them to…

With the same family of friends we usually go away with to Vinaixa, we decided to do our own calçotada, a little closer to home. ´A calçotada, what is that?´…I hear some of you say! Well a calçot is a vegetable (think cross between a spring onion and a leek). They´re in full season here…
