Welcome to Knife and Soul, where you will find quick and tasty recipes that fit into your busy schedule.
I love food and when I'm not eating or cooking, I'm busy planning what to eat next. I would happily spend a couple of hours each day cooking a delicious dinner, but like many people, I have a busy life and spend the hours I'd like to devote to cooking on packed commuter trains instead.
Eating wholesome, healthy, home cooked food is a priority for me so I have refused to resort to takeaways and ready meals. Instead I have mastered the art of meal prep, made friends with my freezer, spent many Sunday afternoons in a batch cooking frenzy and created speedy versions of my favourite recipes.
I truly believe that a busy life can also be a delicious life if you plan ahead, use your cooking time wisely and get your hands on some quick recipes. Whether you're feeding your family, having people over for dinner or simply cooking for yourself I hope you will discover something yummy here!

A little bit more about me:
I live in Hertfordshire, UK with my husband. We got married in Italy 3 years ago. We're both big foodies so having fantastic food and wine at our wedding was very important to us.
I love to travel. 2020 has been tricky for holidays, but in normal times I always have a trip planned. I adore seeing new places, experiencing new cultures and most importantly sampling the local cuisine. When I fall in love with a dish I like to try and make it myself.
I struggle to sit still for any length of time and get a little anxious at the thought of a movie marathon. I do some form of exercise most days and love long hikes, runs and bike rides.
I don't have a favourite food or cuisine and feel like it would be like choosing between one's children. I truly love them all as long as they're done well.
