‘Laughter is brightest where food is best’

                                                  Irish proverb

Hello you lovely person you!

My name is Alja (Ah-li-ya) and I’m a half Slovenian, half Croatian girl that moved to London about a year ago to work in food and drink PR/marketing. I lived in Italy, Belgium and Ireland before deciding that the beautiful and exciting UK capital was the place I wanted to explore next. And I plan on sticking around for a while as I’m absolutely loving it!

I’m a wanderer and a foodie by heart. I enjoy exploring new foods and flavours and experimenting and developing new recipes. I try to come up with healthier variations of comfort dishes and yummy treats, without compromising on the taste. I’m a firm believer in the healing power of food and am a strong proponent of finding a sustainable food regimen as opposed to sticking to restrictive diets or completely eliminating certain groups of food (except when it comes to food allergies). After all, life is way too short to not allow ourselves some guilty pleasures once in a while! Moderation and learning to listen to your body is key.

When I’m not in the kitchen or working, you’ll usually find me doing Crossfit. So don’t be surprised if you find some Crossfit-related lingo in my posts, it is quite a big part of my life 🙂

I hope you find my blog helpful and if you end up trying any of my recipes or have suggestions for improvements or questions, be sure to let me know!

Happy fooding peeps!!
