I’ve made a few cakes in my life but never really focused on the presentation. After watching Billie and Annabelle from Confection Perfection a few times I decided to give it a try. My friend Anthony made a buttermilk cake and then came over to my kitchen to direct and supervise the marzipanning process. [...]
Peru is very vegetarian friendly. Almost all the touristy restaurants I went to had a vegetarian option, and if all else fails you can always fall back on papas fritas. The quality of the produce is really impressive as well. The tomatoes are soft and red and there are all kinds of olives, beans, [...]
Tomatoes and Eggplant fresh from my dad’s garden. There might be a zucchini hidden in there as well.

There is a tiny pizza place on my block that makes the best pizza I have ever had. There is something different about the cheese here that makes it taste really good on pizza.
After a month and a half in Buenos Aires, my girlfriend found peanut butter for me. This is love. The peanut butter was found at Lotos, a vegetarian and natural food store located on Av.
