I like to write. A lot. See also total foodie and compulsive book hoarder. (These two passions combine in that I've been turning into my Mother recently: by this I mean that in the evenings I can usually be found reading a cookbook in bed or in front of the television!) As you've probably already realised, this is my blog where I like to post little snapshots of my culinary adventures; recipes I've been cooking, snacks I've been enjoying, places I've been visiting and restaurants I've been eating in. In real life I talk everyones ears off about my favourite topics, so this blog is where I get to talk, practically all the time about food and eating once all of my friends, family and even passing acquaintances of my waxing lyrical about the amazing Korean Barbecue I ate in Los Angeles or the really exciting recipe I'd just found for a vibrant cabbage slaw.

I'm from the English Countryside, and I split my time between the countryside and London. My second adoptive home is France, a country I love and I am lucky enough to have a lovely home in. I used to live in the little college neighbourhood of Westwood in Los Angeles, California while I spent a year attending UCLA (Go Bruins!) I miss the beach. While London is my favourite city in the world, and Canterbury is home, I call Los Angeles my second city because it is one of the places I love to be the most. While I love to cook and bake all things sweet, while some people are cooks, some people like working with cakes and biscuits, I'm a baker of bread. I adore working with live yeast. Work wise, my blogs and other writings are my semi full time job, the rest of my time is made up by pretending to study (I'm currently in the final year of an English Literature degree in London) and running the PR and Marketing for Pilgrims Nook Holiday Cottages, a small luxury holiday cottage company I run with my family in Kent.
Here are a few things that did not fit into my sidebar, I did not want it looking cluttered:
