Hello. I am so glad to see you.

If you have landed here then you want to know a bit more about me. Ok then, good, it’s going well.

I started this blog because I love cooking. I have loved cooking all of my life. I can’t tell you that my Mother was a great cook or that she taught me everything I know, because she didn’t. In fact, when I decided to pursue a career in cooking she was horrified, deflated , nonplussed, incredulous and she thought I was joking. I think I was a little bit at first. She tried to encourage me to be a kindergarten teacher but I just didn’t think it was me. Turns out it wasn’t.

I love markets and pouring over menus in foreign countries. Asking people how they cook things and being thrilled about learning something new are part of the love and creativity that cooking brings.
