Travel and Food Writer
I also want to thank ‘Greek News and Radio’ for allowing me to get my Greek-inspired recipes that I have created from my humble kitchen in Birmingham, England across the Atlantic to you lovely people to hopefully enjoy.
I will soon be going back to the place where this journey started, Kassiopi, Corfu.
It’s here at this historically traditional little fishing village, just North east of Corfu where the idea for my blog “Recipes from my travels” was born just over a three and a half years ago.
Two years prior to visiting Kassiopi, I nearly passed away with a serious illness, I’m not going to bore you with that, but I was in a very dark place having had to retire from a career I loved…Being a Chef.
This story has been highlighted many times before but being here rekindled that passion to enjoy life once more…..five years later, that’s exactly what I’m doing…not taking life for granted as every second is precious and trying to enjoy and capture every moment like a photograph, not only for me to cherish but for others too.
This might not be my usual foodie article, but travel, food and life all come hand in hand to me…so please just bear with me, I promise I won’t get to sentimental lol
In just over three years I have taught myself how to use social media to broaden my knowledge, instead of just being nosey, my geeky ability has now gone from only being able to write swear words upside down on a calculator to stringing sentences along on a laptop. I’m a published author (not only once but three times, soon to be four with my new book all about Corfu’s culinary and cultural heritage soon to be published in the early part of this year )
Now my love for Greek food is common knowledge to everyone who follows my social media and this recipe is everything I love about cooking, no fancy sauces, no fancy swirls or drizzles….just simple no nonsense food that you can leave to slowly cook away while you take things nice and easy.
