Has been ages really. I have not been cooking or writing for the longest time but have been doing a lot of other exciting stuff which I am going to tell you all about. Life is definitely very unpredictable. What one plans is only part of the journey. The twists and turns makes the journey more interesting and sometimes challenging. When I started blogging, I thought, this is going to help me when I open my dream cafe. However, after blogging for couple of months, I wanted to become a chef. But soon after that, I realized my passion lies in photographing food and telling food stories through photos. Since then, I have been learning a bit about photography. I bought a new DSLR camera, bought few books on photography, bought some camera gear and not to forget the food props (I can actually spend all my money buying these!!!). My excitement and passion then took me to London for two months whereby I joined the London School of Photography.. yay!!!
Two months in London were awesome! I had great fun, made some amazing friends (for life) and loved the courses at LSP. I will always cherish the fantastic time I had in London. Learnt a lot in terms of photography trends, kinds of photography and the industry in general. London is definitely far ahead in this field and it is a dream for any amateur photographer to learn and shoot the food culture in London. As soon as I got back, I did my first commissioned photo shoot…yay once again!!! Being my first photo shoot, I was nervous yet super excited. The day began at 10 in the morning and finished at 8 in the evening but how time flew, I have no idea. One of the memorable days for sure. I did have a stiff neck the next day but no complains at all:)
As I continue to explore this space, I have two amazing middle eastern recipes for you to try. The salad is mind boggling if you like simple yet robust flavors. The hummus recipe is brilliant in terms of texture and consistency. I resisted making hummus for the longest time but now NO to the store bought hummus for sure! Definitely give them a chance…you won’t be disappointed.
