A collection of heartfelt recipes from my family, to yours.
"My real love of cooking started when I left home. This is where I had the opportunity to explore in my own kitchen and create something special. Leading up to this, I was always surrounded by food – big families, European background. An abundance of people always meant an abundance of food. Little did I know my appreciation for food would soon turn into a love affair.
This book is merely a guide to give you the basic tools and knowledge to understand the connection between ingredients and flavours. This is my way of cooking, and I only aim to show you the way I learnt to love it. If I can provide you with only a small percentage of inspiration in the kitchen, then in my eyes, I have won."
About The Author
