Hi there & welcome to my blog!

My name is Gordana, a thirty year old living in New Zealand. I was born and (partly) raised in Belgrade, Serbia. We moved to New Zealand when I was 10 years old. I have now been living here for a little over 20 years. Serbia still has a very special place in my heart so when I can, I love going back and visiting home ❤️. I have an amazing partner in my life, Leon. We have been together for 12 years and we have two adorable tabby cats called Atlas & Titan.

In my 20’s I went to University and completed a Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Education (Early Childhood Education) & Art History, but becoming a teacher was not my true passion. Life felt very confusing at the time and until recent years I realized that food is my biggest passion. With this realization, I completed a course in Gastronomy and Food Photography with Le Cordon Bleu.

Originally, I started this blog as a creative outlet and as a way to share my interest in food. My cooking is inspired mostly by my Serbian culture but I also love exploring, trying new things and being creative. I am always up for giving a new recipe a go.

I am by no means an expert, trust me I have my fair share of kitchen blunders. When I first started learning how to bake I came across many bumps on the road (some of them very frustrating), especially when recreating Serbian baked goods. The thing with living in a new place is that the same ingredients are not always available or easily accessible – so I have had to learn and get creative! 

My hope would be to inspire you to to try something new. Maybe I can connect with some of you who also live in a foreign country or to just simply introduce you to a new recipe 😊. 

Along with all the recipes, I also use this space to share bits of my life outside the kitchen – including photos and journeys of my favorite trips 🌍. Traveling is one of my other biggest passions. I am looking forward to more travels in the future.

So, welcome to this blog of mine. I hope you find something you enjoy here 😊.
