I’m sort of what you call a foodie, the friend who flips straight to the ‘restaurants’ section of Time Out and makes travel itineraries based on culinary exploration before sights. But as I settle into my ‘adult’ life in London, I’m starting to realise I love cooking even more.

You know that thing you do to decompress, unwind, pass the time? Some people draw, or drink, or do chin ups. I scour the grocery isle for Padron peppers on a wiki whim and flick on the burner.

For friends or for just for one, I cant help but get creative for every meal I make, even if my methods and ingredients are less than pro. My roommates think I’m crazy or have way too much time, so I turn to you to decide.

Here I’ll document my creations; gourmet, my way.
