About

I never intended to start a blog. After selling my beloved cafe Switch Board back in 2007, I began writing down all my recipes from the menu for one regular customer. Over the years many more recipes were added to the list, until I decided to turn it into a lovely hand written and illustrated cookbook. My crazy inner perfectionist wanted to make it beautifulΒ – and here I am years later still working on it. Other related projects have popped up along the way, plus I am still being inundated by friends and family members requesting recipes! So I decided to start a blog, as a means to keep all the ideas together in a tidy little bundle – whilst sharing them with you.

I elaborate a little more about the motivation behind theΒ blog in this post!

All of the illustrations featured on the site are my own. If you wish to contact me in regard to my services as an illustrator, or have an interest in my illustrated cookbook, please feel free to do so.

 

I am also a regular contributor to two other sites:

If you like it here, you will probably like it there too.
