Me: I’m a 22 year old living in North West London trying to find a balance between my graduate job as a food buyer, trying lots of lovely new foods whilst not gaining a hundred stone, spending time with my beautiful friends and enjoying everything that London has to offer!
The Bistro: I have always loved food, both eating and preparing it, but it’s only since graduating from university in 2013 that I’ve found myself with more time (and money) on my hands and have been able to really start working on my culinary skills. I cooked most of my food at university (with the occasional takeaway thrown in) but I stuck to easy, cheap recipes that I felt safe with, and I wanted this to change.
Moving out of my family home and down to London on my own meant that I had completely free reign of the kitchen and I was (and still am) determined to try and cook at least one thing completely new to me every month.
Whilst I am not a complete beginner in the kitchen, I am by no means an expert and I wanted somewhere to document my successes and failures along the way whilst sharing my recipes with others who might be in a similar situation to me.
Having a little bistro is a dream of mine that will (hopefully) one day become a reality. Until then, I am more than happy to carry on cooking in my little kitchen and feeding my friends and family for as long as they want me to!
The testers: Most of my food is tested out on work colleagues and my flatmates – who don’t seem to complain too much when I tell them I’ll be busy in the kitchen every other weekend. When I’m back at home, my parents, sisters and dog all play guinea pigs to my cooking and there’s nothing I love more than coming home to a full fridge and getting experimental!
