My blog paints a picture of utter passion for great fresh produce, quality ingredients and wonderful flavours and aromas (and maybe a few awesome products as well) – all whipped up and mastered from my rather inadequate little kitchen in Johannesburg and photographed in my own comfy home studio.
My name is Anina, an amateur turned pro recipe developer, blogger, food stylist, photographer, cook, sometimes baker and entertainer if you like. Yes, despite what you might think, I have no formal culinary background as such, but had to quickly learn the ropes when I jumped head first into the family Cake Shop. The rest is history…
I am honored to share my crazy, free and dynamic personality through my food with you. Thanx for stopping by, grab your aprons, get cooking, and let me know how it went!
