Gypsy Kitchens

Being nomadic makes us crave a home cooked meal more than ever, some small semblance of domesticity can go a long way.  When the local food isn't particularly good, cooking for ourselves is a godsend. When the local food is particularly good, it inspires us to try our hand at it.  Here are some of our 'home' cooked meals, including recipes, tips, anecdotes and all that other bloggy stuff.
