Hello world indeed…..so, err, well I am not even sure who I am writing for, well that isn’t entirely true, I am obviously writing for myself and we’ll see where it goes. I thought this might be a good way to capture my very random thoughts about cooking, eating , drinking, traveling and sharing all these things. So to kick off I thought it might be good to frame my idea of a perfect evening; a few friends, abundant food, some drink, warm temperatures and a starry sky. So….let’s get started!
I started long ago in San Diego, stopped in Orléans, Boulder, Paris, Austin, Göttingen….and finally landed in London! Along the way I was an English Teacher, Biochemist, Project Manager, Publications Planner and now work in PR! I am really passionate about good food and good ingredients. I especially love helping children discover how fun and rewarding it is to cook, and understand where all their ingredients come from. The illustrations with my cooking with kids posts are by my longtime friend Katherine, you can see more of her work here: http://www.coroflot.com/katherineataylor I've just moved to France and am 'rehabilitating' an 18th century farmhouse with the aim to open up a holiday location (BnB and gite) and cooking school, so I better start working on my rusty French!
