A couple of years ago, my husband and I packed up our frantic London life and set off for the countryside. Along with the move, I launched this blog to document my obsession with food. Although starting a blog implies some sort gastronomic expertise, I should warn you that I'm an unschooled home-cook, with no greater knowledge than other home-cooks across the country. On this site, I share my culinary wisdom and (mis)adventures. Whether it's meeting local producers, swishing across the pond to learn the finer points of wine-tasting, or quite simply battering around my own kitchen attempting to make meringues. I have an excessive sweet-tooth and a weakness for flower-adorned cakes, the fodder of Instagram junkies.
Over the years I’ve lived in Hong Kong, Spain and South Africa, and each place, along with its food, has become a little part of who I am. I now live in a tiny cottage in a bustling Hampshire village. While I may endlessly complain about the rain and threaten to emigrate to the southern hemisphere at least twice a week, this cottage, with it’s miniscule kitchen and lopsided stove, is starting to feel very much like home.

While the majority of photos on this site were taken by me, a handful showing a summer tea party (including the opening banner on the homepage) were taken by Jason Alden.
