Writer/actress/cook/foodie.
Food fascinates me. It always has and it always will.
An actress by profession – and what an interesting profession it can be – I have had the joy (and the pain) of a lot of free time between work/auditions/post-audition-drinking… and in this time, I found myself cooking.
It quickly snowballed; dinner at home became dinner for friends became dinner for 12 became a party and a wedding and before I knew it I was working as a caterer and kept being asked for my recipes, but I’d never taken the time to write them down. Then one day a friend persuaded me to start a blog…so I did…and here I am.To try a new recipe, to throw a dinner party, to drink delicious wines, to bake, to grill, to toss, to fry, to try and fail, to live and learn, TO SHARE…this is what I love.
