I started cooking in 2010. I was 20 years old. I lived with my parents in a very small town outside Coventry, I was studying philosophy at the University of Warwick, and I really, really liked food but I had neither the means nor the money to get anything more exciting than a meal at the local Beefeater. I started watching food shows, I started playing round with cookbooks, and I started teaching myself to cook.
She Cooks, She Eats started as nothing more than a way for me to keep track of the recipes I was trying and the different methods I was using to get there. Later, as people began paying attention, I felt bad about getting kudos for other people’s recipes and started making up my own. Five years later, here we are.
I like food. A lot. Since starting this blog I’ve moved to London and gotten to eat in lots of lovely restaurants – although still not as many as I’d like, because unfortunately I have rent to pay. I write recipes based entirely on the delicious things I’d quite like to put in my mouth. As it turns out other people like putting the recipes I write in their mouths, too. Nothing pleases me more than knowing I’ve written a recipe, that someone else made it and that it made them happy.
This blog is full of recipes, musings on food, reviews and posts which are generally about the joys and horrors of cooking and eating. I like baking, but I don’t do as much of it as I’d like. What you tend to get here are quick and easy meals you can make when you come home from work that still taste absolutely gorgeous.
