Shall we share a foodie dance?

UK I thought about sharing with you some thoughts and ingredients behind the Cooknst kitchen. So I’ll begin with a question that very often I hear when pitching the project – well, we are a startup in early stages, and I am in that moment of bringing more people to the table. The question is:

Who's coming to our Summer of Freedom, 1/7, in London?

It all started with Nina Miranda, this gorgeous brazilian-british singer who has just released her new album, ‘Freedom of Movement’. This title, so well put in times like these, brought us to create a night to celebrate diversity, liberty, cultural exchange… To celebrate THE POWER OF NEW CONNECTIONS. Nina’s story bridges different spaces, languages, cultures and

Hot spoon to catch your lover

From Malaga If someone asks me what is my favourite plate, a bunch of them stroll through my mind, but soup is my number one, definitely. A huge bowl of chicken soup gives me energy against the flu or hangover. In wintertime, soup, soup, soup. Vegetables and mint leaves, in a mild broth, are a perfect

Sun-dried tomatoes vs. modern grandma

UK The other day I told my grandmother that I had asked my mother the recipe of her sun-dried tomatoes. I thought I was making her proud, bringing back that sweet part of our story. Little I knew… When I was a kid and along my teenage years sun-dried tomatoes were THE THING at my

Updating my food pantry dream

Málaga, Spain It might sound a bit odd, but my mother-in-law’s pantry – which I gave the nickname “Little Shop” – is the true embodiment of what I think about keeping cultural and family traditions, as well as a fantastic way to reduce our household waste. Maria is my mother-in-law, and everyone affectionately calls her
