What we do
I Heart Cooking is a resource for all those people who just love to cook. We provide recipes and cooking ideas on our regular blog. You can subscribe to our blog feed or twitter and get new recipes sent to you as soon as we publish them.
The site also has a great online store where you can buy tools, gadgets and accessories to make your kitchen a great place to cook. All the products listed on I Heart Cooking are used by the site founders themselves. We do not stock any kitchen “toys” that will just sit in your cupboard unused. All of our products have been tried, tested and proved useful before we stock them. I Heat Cooking is a name you can trust. All our products are high quality, durable and represent good value for money. We’re sure you will be highly satisfied with everything you buy from the I Heart Cooking store.
Background and History
I started this site originally as a tool for expats living abroad. Living in China I found it difficult to cook the food I was used to eating back in the UK. I was getting frustrated with other recipe sites that either listed brand name ingredients, that I couldn’t source, or lacked information. For example, you see things like, “add a can of milk.” Well, that’s all and good in the author’s hometown where everyone buys the same make of canned milk but first, where I live milk only comes in bags not cans and secondly I don’t know how big a can is.
This was my inspiration. I wanted to publish a set of recipes that anyone could easily make no matter what location the live in. I wanted it free of brand names and using standard measurement units so that anyone could read and copy these recipes.
The recipes here are for the most part my own, they are derived from other sources, but tweaked and perfected by myself. They are creations I have cooked many times and I know they work. There is a mixture of different cultures here: some Chinese, some Indian, some European and some traditional – like my Grandmother used to cook – recipes. If you try them yourself, be sure to come back and post a comment to tell me how they turned out. Everyone has their own preferences or variations. I really appreciate your feedback and ideas.
