Welcome back

So I have taken rather  a lengthy period of leave from the blogging scene, having spent the first few months of this year working in New York and traveling in and around the states. This wonderful experience however did not afford me the time nor leisure to cook delicious meals worthy of my blog and american take outs did not quite make the cut! I did get to sample and taste some delicious food and eat out at unbelievable restaurants, New York is a city spoilt for culinary choices, the range of food genres, restaurants, markets and coffee shops is actually quite overwhelming, but definitely inspiring – lots and lots of ideas have been forming in my head that would be great to bring back to SA.

But I am back in the land of braai’s, good wine and rusks and am delighted to be home and cooking in my spacious kitchen for friends and family. So between perusing all my new cookbooks and browsing the grocery stores I have managed to come up with some fairly exciting recipes and meals which I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks. So on that note, let me go and get to work on my first foodie post, am feeling slightly out of practice with this blogging business, so please bear with me for now. I have included a few foodie shots from New York of some of my favorite food joints, just to whet your appetite ♥.

The market at Grand Central Terminal 

An amazing health shop in Chelsea that I used a lot for unusual ingredients and on-the-go snacks

My all time favorite grocery store – Wholefoods (the fish selection is incredible)
