Hello, I’m Gem, The Mother cooker. I cook award winning stuff you might like to eat.

I live in Birmingham, I know it’s not London but we have a Wasabi and Byron now which makes it pretty cool. I’m pretty Ok with a camera and chopping vegetables, so I decided to make a food blog. I’m also a mom, so multi tasking master is high on my list of achievements. I like to spend time pottering in the garden and watching Emmerdale, but don’t worry I’m only 32 and actually have a personality.


I am an organic gardener, teaching people how to grow their own food and eat seasonally. I share recipes based on what is in season that month, along with organic gardening tips. Eating seasonally is my biggest passion and it is my goal in life to try and get people to do the same. Creating a vegetable garden is not only fulfilling, but fun and I can show you tips and tricks to help you along the way.
