hi, I’m Hanna and welcome to my kitchen escapades.

Join me for some delectable treats, stories, adventures, laughter, discovery and most of all fun.

I cook, write recipes, host classes, supper clubs, pop up’s and events in conversation with interesting people in the world of food and design.  Mostly, I thrive on sharing my love of food and opening up my home to share meals with others. It’s around the table that all the best stories are told over a plate of something delicious.

After almost two decades of designing homes and interiors for others (and a few for my growing family), I turned my artistic energy to the plate and where my true love of building a community around the table began. Cooking has and will always be my love language. Creating recipes and meals layered with flavour, colour and texture to share with others, is my canvas. An extension of all the principles I learned through my career in design, building dishes which are not only delectably delicious but inviting, aesthetically appealing, achievable and moist importantly fun lay the foundations for easy gatherings, sharing food with others and creating memories around the table.

On these proverbial pages I share my ideas on how to make a meal without breaking a sweat, incorporating all the tips and tricks I have learned over the years as my house became the entertaining hub. I will talk out through both my most cherished and new culinary finds, discoveries along the way (especially on my travels) and how to cook with the freshest seasonal produce. 

This blog is not only a narrative on what I’m cooking, its my definitive and ever evolving guide to all the tools and all the kitchen secrets you need to create delicious and colourful feasts for as few as one and as many as your space can hold.

A self confessed obsessive collector of anything culinary related, you will find my shelves and cupboards stacked with cookbooks, kitchen utensils, cake tins, odd plates from my travels and other peoples discarded kitchen treasures. Inspired by my travels and other people’s stories and heritage, I never return home without recipes to try, new ingredients and a plate or two to put it on.

I’m excited about inspiring you to enjoy your own gatherings and sharing food with those you love.

I would love to hear all about your meals, gatherings, food adventures and best kitchen secrets.  

Come join my party.
