Cinnamon Quinoa Granola

Serving suggestions: Quinoa granola, fresh fruit and strained greek yogurt are a match made in heaven! I enjoy it with pomegranate, pineapple and a little drizzling of honey, because it’s not a super sweet granola. This is also an awesome breakfast or snack to take on the trail. Ingredients: • 5 cups rolled oats •…

The New York Bagel: How, What, Where, Why

When you sit down to eat your bagel, it’s like unwrapping a tiny present excessively hidden under many layers. You firstly open a large plastic bag, then remove a second smaller paper bag. Inside the paper bag you’ll find a bagel, but it’s usually double wrapped. Finally, it’s there, so much satisfaction fighting through all…

America’s Finest – Lunch at Eleven Madison Park

Expectations can certainly be a killer. I chose to turn a blind eye and not run wild on the Internet to eliminate any potential spoilage. This seemed like a reasonable thing to do at the time, however knowing this restaurant is rated 5th best in the world creates expectations in itself. After a stressful few days…

6 Colombian foods you need to try!

1. Coffee Often regarded as some of the highest quality coffee in the world, this one is a no brainer. And there are so many good places to get it. We found the area of ‘Zona G’ (‘G’ standing for gastronomica) in Bogota to have a really cool café vibe where you can sample some…

Roasted peach chilli sauce

Serving Suggestions: You can’t go past a good avo on toast and with the addition of some spice it can be transformed to another level. I usually top mine with sweet chili sauce, but this roasted peach chili sauce is even better! This is also a good base for a unique Mexican salsa to make…

Squash blossoms stuffed with queso fresco and charred Mexican chillies

Serves: 4 Preparation time: 40 minutes Cooking time: 20 minutes Serving suggestions: Eat these beauties while they’re fresh and crispy and serve with a fresh salad dressed with olive oil and the lime juice from those limes you zested earlier. The tanginess pairs perfectly with the cheese filling and crispy beer batter. A good hit…

A Colombian Adventure: Fishing in the Caribbean

The Caribbean coast of Colombia offers many pleasures the rest of the country simply can’t. One of my favourite’s is the constant availability of fresh fish. There’s something so special about eating a freshly caught fish on a picturesque beach – you can’t compare it with any other dining setting. One way to heighten the…

Doing it on your own: Trekking in Bolivia

There’s a certain type of traveller that thrives to create adventures on their own. They smirk at the thought of organised tours and package deals. They feel smug whenever they walk past an oversized group of tourists eating mundane tourist friendly meals at the tourist specific restaurants. They don’t mind using up hours of their…

A trip to the Peruvian Amazon Jungle

The journey is often just as impressive as the destination. That’s how it feels lounging in my colourful hammock drifting along Rio Hullaga in the Northern Peruvian Amazon. It’s not actually a picture of tranquility; yes I have slept through most of the journey, but my hammock it tied to a big, old, rusty cargo…

Patacones (Deep Fried Plantains) with Garlic Lemon Mayonnaise Recipe

Plantains are the best. I can’t find any information on the Internet that says you can substitute plantains for raw (green) bananas but I would definitely give it a try if you can’t get your hands on these. You won’t want to eat them raw because they leave an awful furry feeling in your mouth…
