I don’t claim to be the best chef in the world however I like to think that I do have some sort of talent in the kitchen. I’ve been baking for most of my life thanks to my mum and since going to university have also started making savoury food. Much as I would love to spend most of my time cooking, I do also have a non-cooking related job which does take priority.

Me and a cake.

My aim was to run this alongside the academic year providing relatively simple recipes that can be baked in a student kitchen with basic equipment. This is aimed at first time livers out who have either little or no cooking experience but obviously, seasoned veterans of the kitchen are most welcome too! If you are interested in building up your skills in the kitchen, I would recommend starting with the cookingfrombasics section and scrolling back to the first few recipes as the ones being published now are a little bit more advanced.

I also play music when I am neither working or cooking.
