The Black Cat Kitchen is currently a galley kitchen in a smallish town in North East England, stuffed to the rafters with gadgets, pans and every other type of kitchen paraphernalia it’s possible to own!
I have been cooking ever since moving in with the boyfriend and our two cats Cocoa and Bella. During that time it has become my passion, taking up a fairly large portion of my waking life!
Joe, my boyfriend is my current taste tester and while I greatly appreciate his tolerance (and wonderful kitchen cleaning abilities) his foodie opinions tend to range from ‘alright’ (meaning great) to ‘different’ (meaning do NOT make this again). I thought it was time to take my cooking to a wider audience and see what others think…
I try to take inspiration from travel, local markets and restaurants and of course other food blogs! I love to see unusual combinations that get you thinking and techniques I’ve never heard of which guarantee to send me scuttling to the kitchen.
Pretty, delicate cooking is not my strong suite – TBCK is all about good honest food that tastes great and uses good quality ingredients, food you can eat and enjoy everyday. I love using spice, I have a weakness for cheese and a good dessert. Also I’ve recently been exploring the exciting world of preserving so these are all things that will pop up on a regular basis.
Thank You to anyone who takes the time to stop and read and I would love any input or comments you can offer
