I like cooking, travelling and shopping. I especially like eating. So that is what I want to write about. I also like markets, mountains, and modern art so they may make an appearance too.
I buy a lot of cookery books but I made a pact with myself that I could only do so if I had to cook from each one I bought. I will review them and share the pictures of the food I made.
I cook for family and friends. I can’t say with all our frenetic lives we eat together all the time but sitting down at the table and sharing a meal with each other and catching up on the day’s news is precious. So is having a cup of tea and a piece of cake with a neighbour at the weekend or having friends round for a meal.
This isn’t a blog of artfully styled food. That’s not how I live. I am just taking pictures of what I’ve cooked before we eat it. It’s photographed on a table, on the worktop or out in the garden on the same crockery and with the cutlery we use every day. I have a penchant for white plates and I want the food to be the star.
