Food bloggers never screw up! I’ve spent years reading food blogs (exciting life I know) and I’ve fallen in love with so many. Perfect recipes and techniques and execution, not to mention picture-perfect dishes. It is rarely the case a blogger writes about failure but when it does happen it is so refreshing and for […]
Octopus and Squid Ink Farro-Sotto
First of all, happy new year guys! I’m loving it so far. Got my mom and aunt visiting and it’s raining outside. I haven’t been doing a lot of cooking, at least not the kind of cooking I usually do for the blog. Cameras, flashes, all this sous vide stuff… I think I would freak my […]

I have topped this dish with sautéed calamari, with a touch of sweet paprika and deglazed this with a splash of dry Noilly Prat, garnished with some red […]
The misunderstood squid ink pasta
DO NOT JUDGE BY ITS LOOKS. That’s the first and only thing to consider when it comes to this amazing pasta. Yes, it has squid ink in it, but there is nothing wrong with that… that defense mechanism is one tasty weapon, mildly briny. Light notes of ocean-ness, perfect for seafood themed pasta feasts. I […]
