I cannot say I was a rubbish cook before I turned 28. No. I just was no cook. I loved cucumbers with smoked salmon and crisps with the Dutch goat cheese ..mmm nice! And of course I enjoyed Caesar salad in all the restaurants I happened to have lunch or dinner. And a few more things. But I never cooked anything myself in my life. I even couldn’t remember if the stove in my house was electrical or gas – our relationships were going nowhere!
You might be surprised but it did not bother me at all. It was perfectly fine until I went “back to school”, to the University, at my respected age of 27. My group was a bunch of great people from all over the world. We quickly fell in love with each other and literally couldn’t spend time separately. Thats where the tradition to have dinners together came from. (Ana, you started it!). It worked like this: one person cooks and invites the rest to his/her residence to share a meal (accompanied with loads of wine and spiced with jokes and laughter haha). It was all going great until it was my turn to cook. I decided it would be a chicken curry. I got a curry from the shop, but rice was still to be cooked!
To cut a long story short. It was a complete disaster. I tried to boil it a few times – in a bag, without a bag, using different “recipes” I could find online – it was a complete mess! I had to phone my dear friend Alenka and ask to come and rescue me.
So she did.
But that was a first kick to realise I couldnt continue like it was if I wanted to be a sociable thing.
I bought a beautiful notebook for recipes to motivate myself and asked my friends to give me some – so I could start practising. Thats how I started cooking.
The list of dishes I could cook was growing. My friends started asking me to share the recipes with them (who would have thought!). So, I decided to start a blog to make it easier and more fun. 🙂
I am a good food addict. All the recipes here are amazingly good. I hope you will enjoy them! I am always here to answer your questions and to hear your feedback.
I practice a Montignac or Low GI approach to eating. Find out Why Here. Almost all the dishes in this blog are low GI, sugar free and gluten-free. It is a perfect way to eat for people with various food intolerances: coeliacs, diabetics or just anyone wanting to make a lifestyle choice. No compromise on taste! 😉
