I am from Slovenia, which is a small but very diverse European country. I moved around a lot and currently I live in forested countryside about an hour away from the capital Ljubljana. The environment is gorgeous, and I love the fresh air and birds’ chirping (which is a bit annoying when you want to sleep late).
This year I started my first vegetable garden, which is doing great (surprise!). Cooking with home-grown veggies is completely different and the taste … Mmm. I also planted a lot of herbs and medicinal plants for healing teas and such.
I’m going to med school and I love it, but it is very exhausting. My scare free moments are divided between reading, hanging out with my long term boyfriend, gardening and cooking, of course. I’ve always wanted to have my own bakery and I’m still waiting for the right time. In the meantime I’m collecting recipes for the perfect menu and daydream about them when I have a tough day at the university.
Desserts are my favorite food, which is very unhealthy but I can’t resist eating them. I make them mostly with wholemeal or buckwheat flour and fresh fruit. Joanne Harris’ Chocolat inspired me to create with this delicious, mystic food of gods. Chocolate chip cookies, Sacher torte, coconut cupcakes with silk chocolate frosting and my absolute favorite - real hot chocolate (lots of the best dark chocolate and just a drop of milk) with chilly, pepper and cinnamon are often on family menu.
I’m a vegetarian, mostly because I love vegetables. At least three times a week I eat pasta with some sort of tomato sauce (I experiment with different vegetables, herbs, olives, various cheeses and practically always come up with something new). Italian cousine is a very important influence, not only cause of its vicinity but also because I really like it. I like to cook Indian food like chickpea curry and herbal pilav with brown rice. English dishes are perfect for winter days – apple pie, onion soup, vegetable stew or pudding. I’m planning a culinary trip across France, Spain and Italy, but it will have to wait till I get a job.
