Frequently Asked Questions

You’ve asked, and I’ve answered!

What’s my background in food?

Since 15 I’ve worked in several restaurants and hospitality. Mostly as a waiter but still very close to food. After high school I worked for half a year as a assistent cook in a restaurant and thats where I learned a lot of basic knowledge about produce and how easy it is to make things like sauces, marinades and spice-mixes. While studying I really started to experiment with cooking and that resulted in this blog and my Instagram channel.

Where do you get the inspiration for your recipes?

I really love to travel and have visited a lot of countries around the whole world. In my opinion you can experience local culture the best through their cuisine. I am always trying to find restaurants where the locals eat and where the serve the most local dishes. And because of that I”ve tried a lot of different foods, from the amazing to the bizarre. I also try to get cookbooks that feature these recipes and try to recreate them at home.

Do you use other people’s recipes on your blog?

It would be almost impossible not to get inspiration from other people, recipes or books. But I am always trying to give my own original spin to it. If I do use a recipe from a book, I will always credit the original author.

Can I use your recipes or food photos on my own site or blog?


No, sorry. I don’t allow republication of my recipes without consent. This has to do with copyright and SEO. If you have a question about a recipe, please feel free to let me know!

What do you do with all the food?
