Food is a form of art… da Vinci would be proud!

Pumpkin seed tales and delicious Pumpkin Soup recipe

Pumpkins, a type of squash, have been cultivated in the Americas since ancient times. The pumpkin seed, like the hemp seed, is high in good-quality protein. Both are also high in iron, zinc, magnesium and omega-3 essential fatty acids. Herbal medicine regards pumpkin seeds as an important parasitic […]

European cooking styles in relation to Ayurveda

Ayurveda has its roots in the Indian sub-continent, so it’s only natural that most Ayurvedic food is based on the Indian-style of cooking—using herbs and spices from that area. Culturally India has a strong tradition of vegetarianism, meaning the cuisine is nutritionally balanced without the use of meat. […]

In life, all you need is love. In the kitchen, it’s cooking with love. ‘Cooking with Love’ means just that—turning an everyday activity into something magical. What’s the secret? Simply that the way you cook (and eat) is just as important as the food itself. Like me, this […]

From Malta with Love

Looking for a warm, central location for our world wide team to meet up (from the UK, Europe and Australia), we though where better than Malta? Located in the centre of the Mediterranean, Malta is derived from the words ‘medi’ (middle) and ‘terrain’ (earth) so literally means the […]
