Hi, I’m Mima

Uncategorized

If I have something delicious in a restaurant then I will almost certainly force a forkful of it upon whoever I’m with. That’s not a humble-brag about my generosity but should indicate why I wanted to start a blog about food – if I eat something nice I’ve just got to tell someone about it. My aim is to tell the story about my favourite food, both things I’ve made and things I’ve tried in restaurants and cafés.

Cooking and eating are some of my favourite things to do and I’m convinced that joy, sadness, celebration and boredom are always improved by eating something lovely. Any success, milestone or just a free weekend is my excuse to go out for food and try somewhere new or somewhere I know I love. I recently moved to Cardiff and that brings the exciting bonus of having loads of new restaurants and cafés to try. Half of the posts on here will be about my favourite food that I’ve found when eating out, whether it’s from a pub, street food van, restaurant chain or garden centre café. My purpose isn’t to criticise or review them but more to acknowledge and applaud good food.

The other half of the blog is going to be things that have come out of my kitchen. I like to use cookery books for inspiration but very rarely stick to recipes, mainly because I haven’t got the money or cupboard space to buy fiddly ingredients for just one dish. I cook almost every day and like experimenting with flavours and techniques, safe in the knowledge that whatever I try, nothing that bad is going to happen. Normally what I make is nice but sometimes it’s flipping great and it’s those recipes or ideas that I want to share.

Finally, I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce my fiancé and fellow foodie Chris. He’ll be the one across from me at a restaurant table in my pictures and in a few months will become my number one co-chef for life.

That’s all the necessary introductions, let’s get on with the food. Bon appetit.
