Hello, and welcome to The Wee Scottish Whisk.
My name is Mhairi (a Scottish Gaelic name pronounced Va-ree). I was born and bred in Scotland but now live in Hong Kong with my husband (Mr Whisk) and our two year old daughter (Little Whisk).
This is a blog about sharing my love of food, and passion for cooking. I believe that cooking is not just for weekends or special occasions, it is a corner stone of the family. My kitchen is a place to socialise, catch up on the day, chat, and inspire a love of healthy nutritious food in my young daughter. I strongly believe in the importance of a balanced, mixed diet, made using the best quality ingredients available. I love to eat almost anything and whilst I don't strictly follow any food exclusions I do try to limit refined sugar and processed carbohydrates. Everyone however, deserves a large slice of cake once in a while and I absolutely love to bake!! My recipes are largely suitable for both adults and children alike, and my ethos is simple and tasty food that is achievable for a busy family. I try to avoid processed foods as much as possible, and aim always to cook from scratch (where time allows).
Full disclosure, these are not all my own recipes - I work full time and unfortunately do not have as much time as I would like to focus on recipe development. This blog is largely a collection of my own recipes, family favourites that have been passed down to me, and favourite recipes shared by friends that I have borrowed and adapted.
I hope that you enjoy the blog. Please feel free to drop me a message and follow me on social media.
