Cookery With Katrina

My passion is cooking. Over the last few years, I have educated myself on food, where it comes from and how it powers our bodies. This started as a bid to lose weight but has become something so much more to me. When you prepare your own meals, you have more control over the ingredients, and you can ensure you eat fresh, wholesome meals. Taste for me is everything.

I am a cook from scratch advocate. I know that you may think that this is easier said than done. Whether you’re here for some food inspiration, my healthy recipes, videos, and interviews will inspire you to cook well at home.

I am not a professional in any capacity, and only have a basic food hygiene certificate (which is probably out of date). I love food, and want to share all of my creations.

More coming soon, but for now…
