I have been toying with the idea of starting my own food blog for years now. After all, I photograph my food all the time, a habit from when I regularly contributed to a private Nigella group for sharing foodie photos, so it was a natural progression. The name, torta alla gianduia, is the very first Nigella recipe I ever cooked, an incredibly rich Nutella cake from 'How to be a Domestic Goddess'. Unfortunately I have just started back on a diet, so I don't think torta alla gianduia is going to be gracing the pages here anytime soon :(. So for now I guess this will be a document of the efforts of someone who loves to cook and bake living in a world where sadly fat and kilojoules do need to be considered!
