I struggled for a while to work out a summary title for what I wanted to write about in a blog which summed up the passions in my life. In the end I came up with this! I wanted a way to share with my friends, family and anyone who cares, my love of science (particularly environmental science and associated sustainability issues), travel and cooking!

The blog began when I moved to Cape Town, South Africa to study for a PhD in Oceanography and continues now as I have returned to my home town of Plymouth, UK to start a new job in Marine Earth Observation. Getting to this point has lead me to some awesome places in the world where I have been able to expand my scientific knowledge and undertake some culinary adventures in the process.

I use this blog to amalgamate information on science – particularly my PhD/continuing academic journey, travel and share my culinary experiences along the way. The beautiful pictures are, for the most part, taken by Ben Loveday, who I’m lucky enough to share my life with.

For a bit more history see my first blog post!>> History or how food, travel and science became my favourite things!

Just a typical week in my kitchen

      Yes, I’m at UCT – studying phytoplankton from satellite – its fascinating but hard work! Food/cooking and the blog is my stress relief 🙂 The blackboard came from Porter Estate market – R100 I think 🙂
