Baklava


It seems that I found something strong enough to heal a broken heart, which is almost magic. I only made baklava a couple of times and I'm not going to pretend I know everything about it. There are people who learn to make baklava throughout their lives and hopefully I'll once have good talk with one of them. But right now I can say for sure that you can make it very well from the very first attempt and enjoy both the making and the eating just extremely.

Carrot halwa


Carrot halwa was the first Indian dessert I got to try. Since then I tried many more, but it remained my favorite (not sure whether it is a coincidence). It is something comforting, warm and sweet. Something rich and mild. Something I'd never expect from the carrot. Like in English carrot cake it works in some magical way here.

Eating pizza in Rome


I'm overwhelmed by amazing food in Rome after my recent trip. This first post is going to be about pizza and fried foods, but several more (about Rome's beautiful pastas, Jewish food, pastry, gelato etc.) will definitely follow. I was never a pizza lover and the more I was surprised by the Roman style pizza. It is different. And even I have to say that it is great. You just have to try it at the right places.
