It’s no secret that I’m a food fanatic, and if I’m not cooking or eating I’m planning what to eat next.
My full time job and its long commute has limited my cooking time over the last few years, but I didn’t let it stop me. I realised that delicious food does not have to be complicated or time-consuming and created speedy versions of my favourite recipes.
What to expect on Knife & Soul
⏰ Quick, easy, and tasty recipes:
Most of my recipes can be made in 30 minutes or less. You’ll also find that a lot of my recipes create yummy leftovers or freeze well.
⚖️ Balanced and nutritious recipes:
I really don’t like using the word ‘healthy’ when I speak about food and think we should all enjoy a little bit of everything in moderation. Most of the recipes on Knife and Soul are wholesome and nutritious, but you are also going to discover some indulgences. Food is about nourishing your mind as well as your body and we all know that the mind loves cake, chocolate and grilled cheese.
🥕 Some vegetarian and vegan recipes:
I am conscious of the toll that meat consumption can take on our bodies and the environment. I enjoy meat but don't think great tasting food requires it. I eat vegetarian food several times a week and hope my vegetarian recipes will inspire other people to do the same.
🌎 Imperial and metric measurements:
Because I want you to be able to make and enjoy my recipes wherever you are in the world.
My promise to you:
Tasty First 🤤
Quick recipes, healthy recipes and recipes with 5 ingredients are all well and good but they need to be delicious to make the cut.
All my recipes have been tested between 3 and 10 times to be sure you will nail it on your first attempt.
You will not find any 200 calorie soups that leave you hungry here.
A little more about me:
In 2012 I met a man who loves food as much I do. In 2017 we got married in Tuscany. Having fantastic food and wine at our wedding was a big priority for us.
Before the pandemic, we would travel as much as we could. I adore seeing new places, experiencing new cultures, and most importantly sampling the local cuisine. When I fall in love with a dish I always try and make it myself. My love of travel has inspired many of my recipes. I have a particular passion for Asian cuisine. If you’re into Japanese, Chinese, and Thai cuisine you have landed in the right place.
I really struggle to sit still. I love to be on my feet and easily lose myself in practical activities like cooking and food photography. I try and fit some exercise into every day 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 will always respond to your emails and comments. Whether you have a question, suggestion, or just want to say hello I’d love to hear from you.
I work tirelessly to make my recipes the best they can be but I am always keen to know how I can improve. I value all feedback, especially if it helps to make my recipes and this website even better for you.
