Cuisine Fiend - Food Blogger
Anna, aka Cuisine Fiend, and The Weather Man live in the south of England, UK where the climate is dire and people don't know how to cook (they only watch cooking programs). But The Weather Man still manages to grow some vegetables and surprisingly tasty tomatoes, subject to half-decent summers, which Anna turns into real food.
She's obsessed with real food. On Cuisine Fiend, everything she makes is guaranteed to be eaten. It's all been cooked and baked for human consumption. When photographing, there is no tissue paper hidden at the bottom of the plates, and there is no hairspray coating the noodles to keep their shape. She cooked it, she snapped it, and she ate it. No food is ever harmed or wasted in the making of her recipes.
The recipes are tried and tested in many cases. In some, they are the first attempts that turned out fantastic. Anna doesn’t have a preference for specific cuisines, although she tends to cook predominantly European food with an occasional nod towards the Far East. She has also made Finnish festive loaf, Moroccan lamb, Ethiopian bread and much more.
She dislikes modern-day faddish and delusional food trends. Vegetarianism and serious allergies aside, as Michael Pollan advises ‘Eat food, not too much, mostly plants’. Why should we deprive ourselves of good things in moderation? Life’s more worth living with bacon in it!
