I began cooking when I was at school, mainly baking in a temperamental Aga oven and making treats for my brothers. However, it was only when I got to university did I take a more serious interest in food. Not long after starting university I realised that I didn’t want to live off 2-minute noodles, tuna and toast. Luckily, one of my parting gifts from my parents was a Jamie Oliver cookbook. That was the start to my ever growing cookbook collection and the beginning of my love for cooking and food.
I love simple, healthy and affordable food (I am still studying!!). Recently, since I am studying my Masters degree in Sustainable Development and Climate Change, I have become a lot more interested in sustainable consumption especially when it comes to food so will try incorporate this into the blog.
I am extremely lucky to live with my very patient boyfriend, Doug, who is not only a great cook but also my sous-chef. He is also extremely handy with the braai (barbecue for those non-South Africans) and cooking over an open flame. This is very useful since braaiing is a culture in South Africa and we spend plenty of time on a game reserve near Kruger where there are no ovens.
This is a new adventure for me, and I will take everything with a pinch of salt, whether it’s a mess or a masterpiece.
