Foods Before They Are Harvested


Many people think of almonds as nuts. But, in fact, almonds are seeds of a stone fruit.


Cinnamon is a small evergreen tree. Its bark is used to create one of the world’s most popular spices, which we love to add to baked goods.


Probably everyone knows what saffron looks like. But only few people know that the expensive spice is made from such a flower.


For those who don’t know yet. Pineapples don’t grow on palm trees but in such a simple way. They belong to herbaceous perennials.


Peanuts belong to the legume family, but unlike other crops, their fruits grow underground. The annual plant forms a small shrub with branchy stems.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
