Another year, many recipes, Happy Birthday to me!

By August 14, 2016 ,

Wow! Its now been two years since I started with Kitchen Exile and what a journey it's been. For those of you who think a blog is easy, it's not! It is a lot of work and when coupled with a full time job, it requires a lot of willpower to come home and sit in front of the computer again and get writing. 

When I say it's hard work, its nice hard work. I love the creative process of creating a new recipe or revisiting old ones that I simply had forgotten about. I love to share those recipes with you and hope that you enjoy reading them and also cooking them.

Last year was one hell of a year for me. I won 2 BBQ competitions at Taste of Amsterdam and at the Big Green Egg festival. I had a recipe published in the Telegraph in the UK and a surprising win at the national Tasty Talent competition with my take on an East End curry. Not only I was featured in the Christmas edition of Foodies Magazine here in the Netherlands.

So who knows what in store for me in the next year.

So I hope you've enjoyed the last two years, here's a look back at a few of yours and my favourite recipes.

Guinea fowl methi masala with pilau rice and chapatis


This was a BBQ favourite, Chorizo style pulled pork.


Another popular BBQ recipe, good old fashioned ribs with BBQ sauce.


My very own personal favourite. Crispy chicken wings.


You have to finish on dessert and this rhubarb meringue pie is a good end.


So, a big thank you to all my readers and to those of you who have helped me on my way with Kitchen Exile. Another big thank you to my other half for putting up with having to wait before eating as I'm usually taking a picture of the food and also for sense checking my articles before I let them loose on the world.
