A request. Please take a look at the accompanying photograph: would you believe I shot this in the hot,  arid desert? Such a fabulous relief to be amongst lush tropical gardens and trees in this concrete skyscrapered Dubai! It gets even more exciting because here in the cosmopolitan, diverse Dubai, not only does this multi-talented, brilliant Executive chef share his recipe of my most favorite dessert, the Crepes Suzette but many an invaluable multi-cuisine cooking tip too. Here he is, flambéing the pancake dessert by drizzling the Grand Marnier liquor down the orange rind and swapping many an interesting culinary story too.

AND THE OSCAR GOES TO…

Go on. Say the magic word “Hollywood” and revel in the glamour drenched shimmering images of the land of eternal summer. Over the past 10 years that I have been going back to Hollywood, it  has been imperceptibly and slowly working it’s magic on me. Reality  has been becoming more exciting than fantasy. For the past ten years, to get the flavour of Hollywood, I have been staying in the  iconic hotels where the stars and movie Moghuls live and dine. The “Pretty woman hotel” the Beverly Wilshire, Beverly Hills Hotel and Belair Hotel.
