hi, unknown.
it’s aho.
what i need to be happy is a real food, i realized. it’s bad enough that veg and fruit from the supermarket are tasteless, and eggs are not yellow enough and chicken is gummy.
slow-cooked, with real ingredients, cooked from the scratch.
twenty-something, living far away from home, trying to recreate her Mum’s and Nan’s recipes. and looking for new ones.
that’s what this blog is all about.

hope you’ll enjoy the journey.
