    Food Innovation

The farming method that I am going to introduce today is the aeroponic farming. Aeroponic farming grows plants in an air environment without using soil. This method is unique in a way that can provide for a completely monitored environment for growing greens. Not only it crosses out the occurrence of any natural diseases,…

    My new diet for 6 days

    Nowadays, it is a norm for a busy restaurant to have no less than 5 guests with restricted diet schedules, would it be an allergy, a food intolerance or a special diet that they try to keep up with. If 2 or 3 years ago, this trend was just emerging, today, it is what the market demands and expects from the Chefs – to be able to adapt and provide options. I myself am living in a vegan household and know exactly just how difficult it can get trying to find suitable options for dining out. However, for this blog, I decided to try the Kcal Counting diet, as I…

    GAZPACHO – 5 WAYS

    Let’s talk about soups now! Where I come from (cold and furious Russia) soups are a MUST! However, where I lived most of my life (Cyprus), soups are not that likeable… Thinking about it, only 1 traditional Cypriot soup comes to mind - Trahana, and people eat it mostly on 1 occasion during the whole year - Easter night… Why is that so? They say, it’s due to whether differences, it tends to be colder in Russia, UK and Canada, than in the Mediterranean, so locals there enjoy soups more. Maybe so, but Russians eat them in winter, spring, autumn, summer, no matter of time of the day, outside temperature,…
