Hi everybody, welcome to my new blog! I haven't done this in a while, so I might be a little bit rusty, please bear with me! I am Cristina, a Romanian living in London UK for the last 8 years.
I have a passion for food, marketing and photography. I have always loved cooking and baking since my childhood with my mother and grandmother, I still have their recipes with me and use them often, every time I miss home a little bit more!
My kitchen is my creative space, the place where all my recipes come to life! I love cooking and baking equally! I love all the spices and aromas that can elevate a simple dish!
I have taken several courses for baking as it is my hobby and my big dream is to take a pastry course one day! In April 2021 I discovered food photography and it has been a true roller coaster as I never held a camera before so everything seemed so hard!
I mean: ISO, aperture, F stop, hard light, soft light, golden triangle, lightroom and there is much much more....
Of course I felt overwhelmed, so I needed to study with good teachers to be able to understand light and composition. Food photography was my biggest challenge for the last year! It takes lots of practice, lots of patience, investing in yourselves and keep on learning so you can be a little bit better every day!
Of course, both my passions are important to me so this blog was the next logical step. There will be traditional romanian childhood recipes, new recipes, recipes I tried from other international Creatives, my own recipes and of course photography! I believe food should be celebrated and I love calling myself a gourmand!
Please share my blog on your socials, many thanks

Cristina is a food photographer, food stylist, and recipe developer, loves travelling and spending time with friends.
