A ‘Midlife Growth’ !

No more ‘Midlife crises’ ­čÖé

Giselda’s Food is officially open for business.

Many months spent working on recipes and menus.  Lots of food tastings with my girls and close friends.  Lazy Sunday lunches and midweek surprises.

My food journey started many years ago in Malaysia.  I grew up in a family of food lovers.  Travelling many miles with my father to try the best bowl of Shitake mushroom Bah Kut Teh (a delicious herbal Chinese soup).

My mother always carrying a rice cooker on trips to the beach and cooking the most amazing food in our little hotel room (back in the days when one could smuggle appliances into hotels!)

Sitting with my grandmother and stirring chopped up pieces of banana core in a pan of water to gather the stringy bits.

Aunty Susan producing mouth watering meals with the simplest store cupboard ingredients.

Then travelling and living in many different countries and learning different cultures through food.
