Taimar Birthistle-Cooke

I inherited a love of food from a very early age; my English father and Irish mother are both keen foodies and I definitely got that gene!

After many years living and working in the heart of Shoreditch, I left my interior architecture job over a year ago to move to Italy to work in events. London was an inspiring place from a food perspective and I spent many hours in my kitchen as it has always been my way to relax, which led me to starting my food blog. I love nothing more than creating something that looks beautiful on a plate, whilst being delicious and more importantly, good for you! My move to Italy has enabled me more involved in food – I recently collaborated with catering companies and restaurants to provide more healthy and vegetarian menus.

Having a design background, I’m slightly obsessed with things that look nice! Nothing excites me more than a pretty new bowl or a beautiful mug, and putting food together that is exciting looking.
