My name is Carole (alias Cooking Wench!). I am 53 years young and work in Supply Chain for a wine company by day but once out of the office my happiest place is the kitchen. At home we have a small but well appointed kitchen which includes a huge open spice rack on the wall and a gas hob including a wok burner. I love the immediacy of gas. I love experimenting and cooking different recipes. I adore food, its as simple as that. I love eating it, cooking it and learning about it. It always amazes me the alchemy that occurs when you combine a few ingredients to create some divine, delectable concoction.
This blog is all about food and about my passion for food.
Some people eat to live. For me food is central to my life and it is not simply fuel to get me through life. It can transform the dreariest day and the worst week.
Welcome to my culinary journey, I hope you will share it with me.
