I’m certainly not averse to spending hours in the kitchen listening to music and cooking but sometimes there just aint the time and for me that means a stir fry, you can knock up this black bean chicken recipe in 15 minutes, just enough time to cook up some Jasmine rice to serve it on and definitely quicker than waiting for the delivery dude to turn up.

About My Food
You could say that I am a bit of a ‘Magpie’ when it comes to food, my tastes are incredibly eclectic and range from the sheer indulgent through to simple and light with influences from around the world. You will get no gimmicks, no trends, no dietary advice and no life advice here, just good food and the occasional story or two.
I’m definitely not one of them “health & lifestyle” bloggers, you will be actively encouraged to use butter if butter is the best thing for the recipe in these parts. Also as far as I am concerned there is no such thing as a ‘super food’, they are all super, well apart from avocado, I hate avocado!
My name is Brian and back in 2008 myself and my wife quit our ‘real’ jobs in the UK, I picked up a spade and a camera and we moved to a small village in Rural Hungary to grow food, brew wine and take pictures. To cut a long story short, we wanted to buy a summer house in Estonia but went to a music festival in Budapest, got drunk, bought a house, got married, quit our jobs and moved countries, all in 8 months… And we’re still here and have no intention of being anywhere else!
