Move Over Basil. Mint and Feta Are the New Flavor Essentials of Summer
When the first of the summer vegetable and fruit crops start to ripen, simple preparations are all that are wanted. A ripe peach or watermelon eaten by hand with their juices dripping down chins and hands is just perfect. So is corn on the cob, steamed or boiled, with butter and salt. Or fresh zucchini sautéed in olive oil and garlic.
How Will We Eat in the Future?
The world’s population is increasing. It’s projected to rise from 7.4 billion people in 2016 to 9.2 billion people in 2050. That’s 1.8 billion extra mouths to feed in a world where, even now, people often go hungry. What’s needed is a revolution in how our food is grown, delivered and prepared.

How to Make Queso Fresco
If you ever have gone to an authentic Mexican restaurant, you may have noticed that the cheese there isn't in "string" form. Instead, it's a white, crumbly substance that is savory, crumbly, and cheesy. This substance, as you might know, is queso fresco — and it's amazing!
The Vegan/Vegetarian Challenge (Veganuary)
Earlier this year I met some friends who are dedicated vegans and they were promoting Veganuary (a month of eating vegan only food). This was so that people could take advantage of the fact that they are filled with a desire to change their lifestyle into something healthier after the excesses of the festive period. It’s also very good on your wallet as it’s a lot cheaper than buying meat on a regular basis. While I wanted to join them, I wasn’t sure how I would go about doing that and I had decided to undertake a different challenge and that was Dryanuary. This is where you give up alcohol for a month which I achieved, although it was not without its difficulties as I was still undergoing a healthy eating challenge but I was very happy about the result it produced. I also repeated the experiment abroad, 3 months later, with my family; however, we did slip up for Easter which was in the middle of this abstinence.

Using Your Noodle to Surf
I remember the noodle houses in the train station at Abiko Station in Tokyo. I'd arrive when it got dark and the white bright lamps would be attracting moths that would dance around each light seeming to celebrate their own traditional Japanese affairs. It was humid and during that train ride I was usually packed in like a sardine with all the other passengers. Many would pile in at Ueno Station and the people on the outside would get pressed up against the glass. Arriving at Abiko station was perfect as the cool breeze complimented with the freedom of the outdoors and proved to be dual relief from the moments that had ticked by previously. It was on these occasions that steam rose up into the high ceilings of the train station platforms and gave off the smell of boiling noodles and breaded delicacies.
