If I am in the mood, I really love to cook.

It is nice to dedicate a little time to create fun food with my little girl, in order to teach her the skills she will find invaluable as she grows and just to create together and be together.  I hope that my cooking with children section gives you a little inspiration to do the same.

Outside of this though, sometimes, to really enjoy the art of cooking well, I need it to be child free and quiet, maybe with a little music playing to sing along to or a good documentary on my phone in the background. I find I create much better food and tastier, more accomplished results when I am able to cook this way. There is a time and a place for cooking with children but sometimes having that space to make a slow cooked meal or fiddly dish is so needed too.

Here you will find a selection of my personal favourites.
