I love to cook. Seriously love to cook. I’m also serious about good food. Real food. Unprocessed food. The food manufacturing industry is not my friend.
For years now, I’ve been creating culinary masterpieces and mishaps and promptly forgetting all about them. Which is kind of a shame when it comes to the masterpieces and probably a good thing when it comes to the mishaps. The time has come that I have decided to keep a record of my adventures and this is it.
Feel free to borrow, try or bastardise any of my recipes but if you copy them or publish them elsewhere, credit where credit is due please. All the recipes on this blog are my creation unless otherwise specified.
Another thing to note is that I use a thermomix. I will endeavour to give both the thermomix version and the non-thermomix version of my recipes so anyone can use them. Please note that I am in no way paid by Verwoerk or any subsidiary company to promote the Thermomix.
