About

My name’s Trisha and I am from Kenley (near Croydon) in England, but I am currently living in Berlin. I know everyone says this, but my mother is ACTUALLY the best cook in the world. Her Sri Lankan curries are the bombbbb. She and my grandmas made me help out with chopping and cooking since I was pretty small – to my dismay at the time. I would much rather have been off making a potion out of my mum’s perfume and my dad’s shaving foam. Every activity in my family revolves around what time/where/what we are eating.

Like most people, eating is what I think about when I’m not doing it. When you’re talking to me and I’m not listening, and you think “What is she thinking about?”, it’s a toss up between chocolate and apple crumble. And to be honest I really am not a fussy eater – I think a €3.50 kebab can be just as delicious as a Michelin star steak. I am far more intrigued by family run, litttle cosy restaurants that are popular the world-over with locals than by big fancy establishments. I see the value in both… but how cool is it that food can be amazingly good with the simplest ingredients.

When I’m not baking here, you can find me over at HelloFresh’s blog The Fresh Times.

Some interesting facts about me –

Macklemore is my guilty pleasure and his songs have even driven me to go home in my one hour lunch hour and bake something insane.

When I was 18 in Thailand I got a tattoo in Thai and I am pretty sure it doesn’t say what I think it does. (In fact… it definitely doesn’t)

Curly eyelashes are the best eyelashes.

My chocolate addiction lead to me being dubbed “Trisha Jaffa Cake Jones” as a child… it has never really worn off.

I miss people a lot more than they realise.

I love emails – send me one

Trisha

    Ha ha … that’s funny that you got a Thai tattoo and aren’t sure what it says! My husband got a Hebrew one a while ago and almost got it wrong – he was only ‘saved’ by the extremely lucky coincidence that the girl who did the tattoo in London was an Israeli! Very lucky indeed! Anyway, just found this blog after you visited mine and I love what I see so far. Always great to find some other great English bloggers!
    P.S. I’m like you. I’m British but in Greece at the moment. I’ll be back soon tho’!

    Hi, Trisha, I just found you on Instagram. Love your blog and the about section. I had to send you this quick comment after reading…I love email, send me one. I think your profile picture is beautiful and at the same time funny. My husband always has to tell me to stop chewing my mouth before he takes a picture;) So, I can relate!!!! I will visit again soon!
