I am Dewi, 28 years old, the owner of this food blog. Of course, I do all parts of cooking, styling, photograph, and writing all of the contents in this blog. Currently I live happily with my hubby and a 3 years old son in Malang – a beautiful and lovely city in East Java, Indonesia.
I am a Javanese who ever spent about 15 years live in Pontianak, West Kalimantan – a city that have so many delicious food. I lived there with my parents, follow my parents who work there. But when I was 17 years old, I come back to Java island to continue my study. I graduated with a degree in Medicine and several months ago I have been just graduated my master degree from Family Medicine Graduate School. Although I don’t have any academic or professional background in photography, one of my dream job is being a professional food photographer 😉 In my daily life, I spend most of my time with my family, as a wife and a mother. But beside that, I am a Lecturer in Faculty of Medicine in one of university in Malang, a part-time General Physician in a private hospital and a Lactation Counselor of Indonesian Breastfeeding Mother Association.
Cooking is one of my daily activity as a mother-chef at home. I have never trained professionally as a chef. I become a home chef by accident, LOL. Long time ago, when I came to Malang as a freshman in university, I come without know anything about how to cook well. The condition to live far away from parents force me to cook my own meal – although I seldom do this at dorm, but at least I try to learn to cook. So here I am, a self-taught home chef who still struggle – until now – to make yummy and healthy meal for my little family. In this blog, you will find real food that I cook for my lovely family and friends – really real food, not fake food that is capture only for commercial food photography. Whether I am in my kitchen or working in my workplace, I am always interested to meet new friend who have same passion with me.
Talking about food, I love food so much. So, it is so hard for me to choose only one favourite food. But I do prefer meatballs and noodles so much. How about cooking food? Actually, I am a home-chef with a boundless enthusiasm to cook anything that I can try to cook at home, from the practical one until the complicated one. In my daily, I cook vegetarian dishes for my husband who is lacto-ovo vegetarian, non vegetarian dishes for me and my son. When I have spare time, I usually make experiment in my little kitchen, try to explore new recipes that I get from many resources and sometimes create something new – without read any recipe. Don’t ever think that I always get success with my experiment, sometimes – many times – I got total failure and have to throw away my dishes. But it’s okay for me, as Truman Capote said “Failure is the condiment that gives success its flavor.”
That’s all about me… Thanks for dropping by ^_^
