The creative culinary juices started flowing a few years ago while I was living in London. Working late and doing night school – I discovered that a sense of relief could be found in the kitchen….
It was here that I enjoyed experimenting with new recipes. Needless to say my colleagues turned guinea pigs were thrilled! I found myself looking forward to these little projects and thinking more and more about food and cooking in general – a family trait I started to recognize in myself. Growing up in a British / Canadian family, where both parents thrive in the kitchen, a grandfather who planned his next meal before finishing the one in front of him, and a restauranteur for a great grandfather – the apple was not falling far from the tree.
I now live in Switzerland, surrounded by the influences of French and Italian cooking, not to mention the wonderful fresh food markets and cheese stalls, which naturally entice my taste buds. With my recipe pile of clipping, notes and books mounting, as well as my growing enthusiasm to share with friends and family, I felt what better thing could I do than start a blog!
