Thanks so much for stopping by! My name is Nellie and I love a good chat about all things food. I have a serious cookbook addiction and when I am not in the kitchen feeding my class guests, friends or family, you will find me engrossed in one of my cookbooks, testing recipes, tweaking to my tastes or simply to experiment. I confess that I have been known to weep like a mad woman at a well written ‘thank you’ at the back section of a few of my favourites.
I feel gob smacked that there are a small percentage of people out there who do not live and breathe food and who might not take great pleasure in talking for hours and hours on end about ingredients that rock them (if you don’t know, yes I am tongue in cheek right now)! I have started this blog so that I have my own place to rant and blather about food, a place to collate my recipes, tell their story, share myself with others as well as save my marriage! You see, I have the world’s greatest husband. He loves to eat (he has no choice), he is an amazing father, he irons, he makes the bed if he is the last one out (a rule he declares I knew about years ago), he can be handy with a vacuum should he feel so inclined and turns up without question to help pack up at the end of one of the many late night cooking classes I host each week. He is ‘a keeper’ to say the least and so it is time that I create my little space here and gently release him from the burden, of my blather, that he has carried for far too long. I think it is fair to say, he just wants to eat and after all these years and I can’t begrudge him that!
I’d love you to come back and visit from time to time and your feedback and comments are always very much appreciated. I can also be contacted via email, via the relish mama website, on facebook as well as twitter (I admit this one is a very ‘sometimes’). Who would have thought one simple gal could become so tech savvy!
I hope my recipes and passion for all things food, in my blog, in our cooking classes and always around our table inspire you to want to cook and celebrate the pleasures of the kitchen and table. The pleasures truly are amazing!
