Review: La Roulotte du Coin

I love duck; it’s my favourite kind of meat. There’s something about the taste and texture that charms me every time. Not too strong of a taste, but enough to stand out with heavier sauces. When cooked slowly, duck become grandiose and its high protein/low-fat meat breaks down perfectly in a sandwich or salad. My […]

RECIPE: Garlicky Spice-Rubbed Grilled Chicken with Vegetables 百里香蒜味燒烤雞

You may think it’s impossible to have good BBQ if you don’t own an outdoor grill, but there’s no need to worry! (I don’t […]

I think she has masochistic tendencies. […]
