A little bit about me....


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 three 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 work full time so I am on a constant quest to develop new ideas for quick, tasty, and healthy weeknight meals.  I try to avoid processed foods as much as possible, and aim always to cook from scratch (where time allows).

I hope that you enjoy the blog.  Please feel free to drop me a message and follow me on social media.
