When did you first get in to cooking and do you remember the first recipe you tried?

My mum is an amazing cook but I never really showed much interest in cooking or baking when I lived with my parents.I was only interested in eating :) When I moved away from my family home I realized how important food is for me.I really wanted my own place to smell of freshly baked cakes,crusty bread,fresh herbs and delicious dinners....just like my family home and so I started experimenting in the kitchen and learning how to cook.The first recipe I've ever tried to bake was a Polish apple cake-a taste of my childhood memories!

What's your kitchen like and how do you keep organized when cooking?

My kitchen is very cosy,lots of jars around,fresh herbs on a window sill,vintage pots here and there and lots of cookbooks.It's my happy place.It's pretty organized until I start cooking......
I wreak havoc when I cook and clean afterwards.Luckily my husband always volunteer to help!

What tips would you give to someone wanting to become a better cook?

Never give up!!!Keep trying and experiment!.Also ask your family and friends for help and advice.

Who would you invite to your dream dinner party and what would you cook for them?

My dream dinner party is a meal shared with people I love the most-my family and friends.Nothing makes me happier than cooking a new dish I've just discovered for people close to my heart.And it doesn't have to be a dinner!I love throwing a breakfast party too!

Do you do any other crafts and what are your hobbies?

I'm totally crazy about photography.

Which cooking blogs do you love to read?

Coutellerie,Green Kitchen Stories,Adventures in cooking,My new roots,What should I eat for breakfast today,Rene Kemps,O&O eats,101 cookbooks,Sprouted Kitchen,Canelle et Vanille,The clever carrot.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
