My Top Dishes of October 2017.

My Top Dishes of October 2017.

The start of October feels like aaaagggess ago, but somehow I can’t believe it’s almost November.  Or, maybe that’s just me?  I was out and about quite a bit this month.  What do I remember best? Chicken croquettes, Toro + Ko (with a very close entry […]

My Top Dishes of May 2017.

Starting in the Maldives, then to Italy and dining across the UAE, May 2017 has been a busy month, indeed! In no particular order: Tandoori scallops, Orientale.  The sweet simplicity of this dish blew me away.  Having a perfectly cooked protein stand on its own = […]

My Top Dishes of April 2017.

Apologies for my delay — I think you know I’ve been busy transiting through the Maldives.  😉  Well, I don’t think anything was going to live up to March, but April did have some fun treats thrown in.  Knowing my May and June were going […]
