a cook's diary

Cooking is fundamental to my enjoyment of life. I live to eat.

I have been cooking since childhood and there are recipes I have been making for many years, including long-remembered family dishes which I have passed onto my family. So many dishes!

It's amazing, though, how I forget what delicious food I have made over the years so this blog is purely for me - a diary of what I cook with reminders of how I made it, what went wrong, what could be improved, and the new dishes I make from my library of cookbooks that I have never made before.

There's no amazing photography here; nothing clever or fashionable.

This is a just diary, and I am just an ordinary home cook.
