A Brit through-and-through, but born in Sharjah, my family have lived in Dubai most of my life, however I have recently relocated back to the UK to begin a new adventure! My mother, my teacher and inspiration, taught me to cook from a young age, and I have bushels of wonderful food-related childhood memories as a result.

You’d think from the name of this blog, #CAKE, that it would be a cake-only site. Well I have to admit that was the plan when I started.  After a while, however, I found myself wanting to write about so much more. Old family recipes, my favourite chefs, inspiring food blogs, great restaurants, and even cooking tips I have collected along the way. I guess this blog is really more of an insight into my food-filled mind.

I do occasionally review restaurants for free or write about products sent to me, but these posts will always be in my “review” section, and all thoughts are my own. If I don’t enjoy an experience, I won’t write about it!

I am addicted to food shows (#thegreatbritishbakeoff huh hum) and Jamie Oliver’s magazine, and love nothing more than an afternoon browsing the local kitchen shop or cooking section in Waterstones.

If you would like a consistent stream of food-related babble, then go ahead and follow #CAKE on all these new-fangled social media platforms: FacebookTwitter, and Instagram

Alternatively, if you have any questions or you’re feeling particlarly chatty, feel free drop me a line: hashtagcakeme@gmail.com

      Great to hear it – Masterchef Australia has got to be one of my favourites! And Sharjah – yep. I first graced the world with my presence in Al Zahra hospital a quarter of a century ago!
