Smile is a universal welcome, so I’m smiling to you widely to say HELLO.

I’m Bea (short from Beata) and I’m crazy about food
I was born and raised in a beautiful little town in south-west of Poland. I’m now living in England (which is beautiful too!), where I moved with my husband in 2006.

Made of my three most favourite things: food, photography and wellbeing, Bea’s cookbook is my space to unleash creativity.

Welcome to my world and make yourself at home.

 

PHOTOGRAPHY

Ok. Let me confess. I’d never known what I wanted to do in my life… What is more, it always really bothered me. I was hoping that one day I’ll just wake up and know, but it wasn’t happening. I had two choices: wait or do something about it. I picked the second option and started my journey to self-discovery. French, English, Literature, Garden Design, you name it! I took every course I thought might be ‘it’. I finished every single one, but it wasn’t what I was looking for. In the meantime, I was cooking, obsessively collecting cookbooks and reading a lot about nutrition but wasn’t sure how I could apply all these into a full time job. And then……I bought my first DSLR camera and fell head over heels in love with food photography.

Honing my photography skills has been an inspiring journey, looking at the world through the camera lens gives me an opportunity to notice that beauty is everywhere around us and having a passion is the reason I smile every day.

My companions are Canon 600D and 24-7mm 2.8mm, 50mm 1.8f lenses.

FOOD PHILOSOPHY

It’s not really a philosophy, I just like to eat. I graze on veggies all the time and I love seasonal fruits. I also eat fish, meat and dairy and I always make sure they come from the farms I trust. My pantry shelves bow with jars full of whole grains, pulses, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices. I believe in whole, natural and quality ingredients, eating fresh, local and seasonal and I dislike highly processed food, filthy additives and dishonest, unpronounceable ingredients. (yes, I read labels!)

And from time to time……I like to splatter flour and butter everywhere and loose myself in baking. It’s all about balance, right?

Nothing makes me happier than sharing my passion and to cook for others; there is no better way to spend time than with great food, great people and great conversations…

So please join me
