About Me and My Blog

The joy of cooking!

Hi everyone,

After a couple of years of reading many beautiful food blogs out there, I have decided to create one. I adore cooking and eating. A good plate of food can always make me smile! So here I am, sharing my food interests, discoveries from my travels, my favorite recipes and  my culinary misbehaves!

A little bit more about me: Name Nargess Raha P. (blogging as Nargess) I am 30 years of age, born and grew up in Middle east, Iran (a.k.a Persia to some or the land of …. yes! I know what you are thinking ..land of spices! ). Back then I have observed numerous family cooking sessions which involved use of many colorful spices and resulted in mouth- watering dishes. So in this blog I will share a bit of  my middle eastern-food loves.  I have lived a good chunk of my life in UK/ England and have gathered many many cookery books; have kept my favorites and I will share their best recipes in this blog.

Currently I work and live in Dublin. So far big love for this city, humble and full funky places and food surprises.

Oi you food! make me smile. Happy with French patisserie

  21. Hey there Nagress! Thank you so much for following my blog! I was just looking through your blog yesterday and loving the look of your blog and many of your recipes. I’m vegan, but I still like looking at non-vegan blogs because it’s easy for me to veganize most recipes. I look forward to more of your lovely posts! Celeste 🙂

    • Thanks very much Celeste. Glad to have you around in the blog world! I love Vegan blogs. I follow quite a few. I think vegans are the most creative and inspiring. I like to have at least 3-4 vegans meals per week. Looking forward to get recipes and tips from your blog. 🙂
