Since as long as I could remember, I’ve always loved to cook. My parents are from Guyana and my childhood memories are of my Mum’s ‘cook-up rice’, and my Grandmother’s ‘plaited bread, fried bakes and coconut rock-buns’. At home, the kitchen was always buzzing with cultural infusions, as Guyanese heritage has been influenced by several colonial powers (Spanish, French, Portuguese now northern Brazil, British and Dutch).
I’m a passionate cook who loves trying and customising recipes and an amateur photographer who enjoys immortalising meals through photography. My Guyanese heritage and British upbringing finds me experimenting and fusing several cultures in my cooking. As a mum, I’m always on the hunt for new ideas to enthuse children about food and cooking. Mealtimes are sometimes fun, often chaotic and always messy but never dull.
My blog is a discussion about dishes I love to prepare, challenges I face in the kitchen and some recipes which you may wish to try out.
