Ella 1Hello!

My name is Ella. I’m 15 years old, literature enthusiast, avid traveller, star gazer, Head Girl and above all, lover of all foods.

I find inspiration in the friendships food forms, how communities are interlinked by recipes and how a country's culture an be traced through its diet.

To me, the word food is full of colour and creativity; a main passion of mine is being able to explore the personality of a chef as expressed through their food.  The choice of flavours and presentation is a way of writing a novel without words, each individual interpretation telling a unique story.

I'm fascinated by food's place in popular culture and it is this fascination that I would like to share with you in this blog.

Here's my first post inspired by Marguerite Patten.
