Roasted Potatoes with Broad Beans in Tahini and Pomegranate Sauce. Well, nothing else but broad beans are in my head. What I mean is that I wish life was just that simple, but in many ways, I’m also glad it isn’t. Why? Because I like variety in life, and particularly so in the kitchen. I’m not the traditional type. There was always something different about me. Curiosity to try and taste the different, the unknown! I apply this whenever and wherever I can, not only in my kitchen but in my life too.
I like to think that personally, I look at things differently from everyone else. I hastened to add, nowadays, most of the times with courage, but I went through a time of complete withdrawal in order to have time to think and digest what life threw at me. That’s why I am where I am today, that is why I love the otherness and I love to express it through the prism of eating.
I love creating positive energy on a plate. I love feeding others with positive energy. I love learning to combine the flavors of the world; colours, goodness and distinctions of cultures. This is something I’ve learnt and strive to learn further. I thrive on new learning and I love it so much! These are my best lessons of the cultural studies and the taste of tolerance. The real, tastiest and most meaningful lessons.
So today’s lesson is reserved for Roasted Potatoes Coated in Turmeric & Wild, Handpicked Mountain Rosemary with Broad Beans; all with a pinch of Cayenne Pepper, Tahini and Pomegranate Molasses. Because food unites people, let’s eat what nourishes our bodies with positive energy. To give it back to the world.
