My name is Gordana and I am 28 years old. I was born and (partly) raised in Belgrade, Serbia. We moved to New Zealand when I was 10 years old, and I have now been living here for 19 years. I do travel back home often, I really do love to visit & explore. I am blessed to have an amazing partner in my life, Leon, we have been together for 9 years and together we have 2 adorable cats, Atlas & Titan. In my early 20’s I went to University where I completed a Conjoint Degree in Early Childhood Education and Art History but becoming a teacher was not my true passion.
I’ve started this blog as a creative outlet to show my love for food and to share some of my recipes with you. My cooking is inspired by my Serbian culture, but I often re-create some traditional dishes into healthier options as I love to create wholesome meals. My hope would be to inspire even one person out there to enjoy being in the kitchen and to maybe introduce you to a new recipe or dish you have never tried before.
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 another one of my biggest passions.
I love anything orientated around food, fitness, health and travel. I hope to encourage you to enjoy a variety of wholesome & delicious foods with zero guilt. Maybe one day I will spend more time travelling the world and tasting all the amazing cuisines out there 🙂
