About Me

A Foodie in Love with Photography, Food Styling and Travel

I’m Irina, a Romanian-born food aficionado influenced by eastern European cuisine and fascinated by the flavours, textures and the chemistry of cooking.


My dream is to build a life around food, discovering new flavours and changing perceptions with the aid of photography, styling and travel.


I will be reviving childhood culinary memories of Romania where western flavours meet those of the Middle-East.


The recipes are my own, inspired by my mother and other culinary idols around the world, and they reflect the influence of ten years living in Britain.

Life in Small Bites
Our portion of everyday life

Life in Small Bites is not about portion size but the size of our everyday portion of life, those small nuggets of minutes and hours and little moments that make us who we are.
