fourat in a hat


, ,

This woman knows how to make an entrance – what a hat! It’s been awhile since Fourat and I met for a “catch up” lunch so we finally made a date, which also included some Tapas Research. We also talked about our future plans and, for the first time, I mentioned an idea I’ve had for awhile to someone else. It was a bit scary but, as usual, Fourat had a lot of great advice and ideas for me to help get things going. So now I have a lot to think about and also something to work on over the summer. Wish me luck!

back in the kitchen

Some of you may know that one of my (too many?) websites is azahar’s kitchen, a recipe blog that I started back in 2009. It’s “moved house” a couple of times over the years, from to my own hosted sites.

Some of you may also be aware of a recent flutter of activity on that blog, which started after I published a new recipe (requested by my friend Ann when she saw a pic of my albóndigas al oloroso on social media). Then I found a bunch of photos that I had filed away for “later”, so I have added text to those and put them up too. There are still a couple to go.

This is totally a “hobby blog” just because I enjoy cooking, and also sharing the recipes I come up with (sometimes on my own, more usually a combination of several recipes I’ve found online or in books, which then get edited into one I prefer. So drop by and have a look. You can also subscribe to be notified when new recipes go up.  🙂
