I wanted to share a post about plastic in the kitchen as I’m currently working on minimising plastic in all parts of my house. Recently I was standing in a big supermarket and came to the realisation that nearly everything was packaged in plastic. It’s crazy to think how reliant we have become on this cheap form of packaging. It’s almost impossible to go plastic free when so many items that we need and use in every day life is wrapped in it..so I began researching my options and I thought maybe I can encourage a few others to also reduce plastic in their daily lives. Reducing all plastic is not something we can fix over night…but I’m optimistic just some small changes and tweaks around my own home and maybe the homes of other people can help our plastic problem.
Our journey began at the Kiev train station in Ukraine. We were catching an overnight sleeper train all the way down to Mukachevo, a city in Transcarpathia. Feasting on an overnight train is crucial to anyone travelling in any country through Eastern Europe. It’s one of the best experiences and we started this trip with a feast like no other.
Our Moroccan honeymoon adventure began in Marrakech. The colours, the intense heat, and the sounds of the medina were very much around us as soon as our taxi dropped us off from the airport. To get to our hotel we had to walk past shops, traditional bakeries, tiny alleyways and through a very small door to find our little riad.
We set out on this journey through Spain to visit one of a kind producers and Jamon was number one on my list. Jamon is found in every corner in Spain and I wanted to find out how this cured meat and delicacy is created. So we organised to visit Cinco Jotas…the producers, masters and creators of jamon from Acorn Fed 100% Iberico Ham.
A few days ago I finally went to visit Tasmania with my Grandma. We used to do these little trips around every year and hadn’t done one for quite a while so thought it was about time. I had heard from everyone Tassie is incredible and great for fresh produce and wine. So it was nice to see what everyone talked about!
Today I thought I would put up a post about putting together a cheese platter…because…they are just the best right?
