This blog began life in LA during a period of intense homesickness and was an attempt by me to connect with my surreal surroundings; an Englishwoman living in a world without pavements. Food, what was growing around me and what I ended up cooking and writing about became a way to remain sane. It also reconnected me to my past as a rather feral child growing up in Devon and wearing foxgloves on my fingers in lieu of nail varnish.
Now I write because I love writing. Food is more of an add-on, or as someone more articulate than me said, a portal. I trained as an actor at RADA and like telling stories that way too – as in actually standing there in person, speaking the words in real time. I also have an allotment, from which you can probably deduce that I’m back in England. And of course I now miss LA.
I like lemons, Quavers, almonds, cashews, a very good cup of tea, cake, sorrel, soup, sorrel soup, carrots, garlic, herbs you can pick and roll in your hand and humous/hummus eaten without accompaniment.
Thank you for visiting.
