The Internet Chef Talks to Melissa Klemke from

Melissa from

and asks her Just one Question…

What inspired you to blog about food?”

My family. My parents and grandparents are fantastic cooks and I was taught to cook from a young age. I started my blog initially more as a place to record thoughts/information and stuff about my kids mainly for posterity.  Then I started to add the recipes I cook and tried so I could refer to them easily.
Quickly this became a bit of an addiction, and I found myself wanting to create a bit of a ‘family cookbook’ online.  I intend to have my recipes printed and bound for my three daughters (how many volumes I don’t know!) so they’ll always be able to make family favourites and ‘Mum’s cooking’ when they grow up.
So now it’s a bit of a legacy you might say.
