About the Blog
I started this blog a few months after my daughter was born. I found myself at home a whole lot more than I had been previously, and began to experiment in the kitchen. This space is a personal narrative; I love to cook & to eat, I have two kids and a beautiful partner, I read as much as I can, and I swear a lot. You’ll find all of that in here. You’ll also find recipes for everything from salads to noodle dishes to cakes.
The dishes in this blog are all relatively simple. It is the food that I cook at home, for myself and my family. I rarely eat meat, and I love cooking with seasonal, organic and locally sourced vegetables and whole foods. All of the dishes here are vegetarian, many of them are vegan, some are raw. Most of the food is healthy, but not all of it. I don’t believe in diets; I do believe in good taste.
I’m Sarah. I grew up in Australia’s food capital – Melbourne – and after a five-year stint in Brisbane we’ve recently moved back down south. I live with my wonderful partner Seth, our energetic daughter Waratah, the fast growing Tanami, and two glossy brown chooks. Alongside food, I love reading and writing, feminist history and art theory, writers festivals, Jorge Luis Borges and Ursula Le Guin, overseas traveling and city bike riding, taking photos and camping, swimming in the summertime and whiskey neat. My favourite foods are fresh pineapple, ice cream, dark chocolate, sourdough rye bread, roasted beetroot, peanut butter, salads of all sorts.
I hope you enjoy reading this blog as much as I enjoy creating it.
