Have been on holiday recently (although that is obviously not sufficient excuse for the absence from this blog :). I’m off again to Turkey tomorrow, but expect more when I get back. Brief summary of the holiday:

Geneva – staying with friends
Highlight – a long, *long* walk with beautiful views of Lake Geneva, seeing Chamois goats on the mountain and wildflowers everywhere.

Bude, Cornwall – self-catering
Highlights: a bit of bodyboarding, excellent fish and chips and clotted cream, and I finally finished ‘Seven Basic Plots‘.

I’m Louise, and I’m a compulsive baker, cookbook hoarder and a bit of a food geek. I learnt to cook at home, and later at Tante Marie’s cooking school in San Francisco. With a science degree and a background in IT analysis, I like to understand why a recipe works, not just how to do it. Why the rules are there and when they can be broken.
