this goats roasted cheese with guava & ginger compote is the current obsession of several “feast at home” readers…so I am told…it is utterly delicious, and encapsulate our philosophy to the T;

“The food is civilised without being pretentious … that is to say it has natural taste, smells and textures, and much character… often it looks beautiful too”

countdown to Xmas with our pic of the day…

we picked this fresh nutmeg walking through the forest in Zanzibar, Ali shelled it there and then and i was able to grate some and taste how insane this spice is when fresh… that day, we foraged  and found over 20 different roots, spices and leaves…

we thought we’d share an image a day with you… a snapshot that means something to us… happy holidays!

if you ever wondered what franck looks like with hair… and copious amount of mojito in his bloodstream…
