Chicken with Coconut milk, spicy version.

This is a more flavourful version of the Ginataang Manok recipe I posted a while back. Just replace the sweet bell pepper with mild chillis and the snowpeas with 2 lemon grass. Add more ginger too!

Up the stairs to Chateau Grimaldi in Haut de Cagnes village

One of my favourite places on the French Riviera. It was here that I learnt the French language. The school was located at the food of Haut de Cagnes village. I love the juxtaposition of the new part of town below and the quiet old town on the foreground. It was lucky that this well…
