Back then I was navigating the new mum course, working part time and training for a marathon. How things have changed. My little guy is now at school, I quit work to go the Chef school and I finished the run.
About the only constant over the years has been the blog. Some months, I’ve been a prolific poster and others I’ve wondered if I’ll ever write again. It’s a little bit like life, somewhat erratic.
Welcome and thanks for dropping by. I’m Marija (that’s Maria in Croatian) and I live in the coolest little capital in the word, Wellington.
When I’m not pottering around the kitchen or trawling food emporiums, I tutor cooking at Wellington High School community education and Crave Cooking School, teach children to cook in the Garden to Table programme, take private lessons, and do project work. I also love to cook for Good Bitches Baking.
I have an on-going and close relationship with Kenny – my Kenwood mixer. He features frequently in my posts and has revolutionised my cooking.
When I’m not in the kitchen, eating or hanging out with the little guy (and his Dad), I like to run – but, I do seem to be injured more than I’m not. That doesn’t stop me from looking for fabulous places around the globe to visit for a run. It’s purely coincidental that they are often foodie havens.
