Hey guys welcome to the Urban Food Diary. This Sunday of course we honour the wonderful life givers that in most cases gave us our first meal.
Happy mother’s day to all the moms, mom’s to be, grand mom’s. The ever evolving world of the kitchen is often credited to mom’s switching things up, trying to amplify flavours and constantly giving new looks while reinventing the classics in the kitchen.
Our relationship with food usually starts with and comes from our moms, so we thank you, and we salute you.
