The name Gourmet Kitschen is is a play on words. Kitsch has been said to be the opposite of art- a cheap, “slapping together” of things and passing itself off as art. I must say my cooking escapades are quite the same- a slapping together of random things I may have tasted before, wanted to taste or imagined.
I am a very messy, irrational cook but I love it and it shows in the food I make.
Kitchen MIshaps and Victories, Restaurant Rants and Raves and a whole lotta wanderlust!

Traveling Tummy: London Calling Part 3: Sunday Chillin'
Fattoush Salad- A lebanese salad with fried pita and sumac. Nice, light and refeshing.
Host # 1 Faisal manning the grill!
....and of course, a close up shot- lamb and chicken are always welcome in my tummy!
With my long lost Rodney! I've missed you!
Post lunch chismisan. Topics ranged from politics to stuff I can't really mention here haha!
Home-made pear pie by Faisal again. OK, I'm starting to see who the chef in this household is...
Eaten with home-made pina colada ice cream topped with toasted coconut. Simply divine! So good. I would have eaten more if I wasn't so stuffed from the food and wine.
Went for an hour and a half walk through the park after lunch. Omg, we needed to!Beside me is Host #2 Missy!
Along the way we some some graffiti. This was along the old railroad tracks (no more tracks though)
Ran into some artists doin their thang.
London Welcomed me with open arms. I really love this city.
