So she decided to start a blog to explore the issue which opened new doors for experimenting in the kitchen and making new recipes. It went from zero expectations and no long-term plans to people connecting with her from all over the world, who were curious about her content and now it has led her to create a pop-up restaurant, film, edit youtube videos, catering for events, festivals, and food markets.
She also advises anyone who has desired to start a blog to start now.
