WHERE IT ALL STARTED
As a child growing up in rural Transilvania, I had so much fun pulling a cart with a sack of grains to the mill around the corner. I watched fascinated as the grains were turned into flour. Then, covered with flour dust I took the cart onto the baker who gave me bread coupons for a month and the day’s fresh bread to take home. I remember trying very hard not to peel off some of its fresh crust by the time I’d returned home, often failing miserably.
Over 20 years later, I found myself living and working in rural Oxfordshire, ordering my bread in a virtual basket from my iPhone. It came delivered to my door, sliced and wrapped in plastic. By adapting to modern life I lost my connection to food and to its story. I wanted to regain my knowledge of where food came from and what its role is for my body...
CHOOSE TO MAKE A CHANGE
I am now standing up and choosing to make a change. My ambition is to reverse the trend and bridge the old with the new. I want to show that we can remain connected to the food we eat, yet stay adaptable to the new times. I want to share this passion with my community and beyond.
My background as an analyst and chef made me curious about how our food could be better managed. My passion is to show how this can be achived whilst deicious flavours and immaculate presentation is mantained
I am standing up for food and fighting its fight by promoting ethical eating.
