As a child, I’d see my mother cooking  some amazing dishes, many quite multi-cultural (my parents were from Darjeeling but my mother spent some time in Bhutan.) She attended cooking classes and everyday when I returned from school, she’d have made these wonderful dishes. It’s probably why I love food today. After she passed away, food has become my way of connecting with her. At first, it was a way to remember her by but over the years, I’ve grown to love cooking and baking. Guess my mum’s genes have rubbed off on me. I have her handwritten recipes with me and go to it often. Here’s one for the tea cake that I’ve adapted, influenced by the tea I’ve enjoyed at Teabox
