Alidad's Timeless Homes...

Known for his opulent and elegant interiors, Alidad born in Iran, raised and studied in Europe is as International as one can be.

After graduating from London University became one of the youngest departmental directors at Sotheby’s for Islamic art and textiles. In 1985 he launched his own design firm Alidad Ltd, in London and rest is history.

Since he mostly works in Europe and Middle East, he may not be very well known here but in that part of the world he is a celebrity.

Alidad has recently published a book “Alidad the Timeless Home” which is a visual treat.

It has been very cold for last one week here in Oklahoma. One fine day we went from 65F to 18F in a matter of hours, and now are below freezing for so many days. It is icy and frigid outside (7F right now), so I decided to experiment with my baking. Bake of yesterday; Pizza and and bread. In both the cases, improvised with whatever ingredients were available.

Bread tastes better than it looks :)
