British Fanatic

I'm originally from England, currently living in Southern California. I’m the author, recipe developer, photographer and resident redhead behind Culinary Ginger. I grew up in a household with 4 siblings where my mother cooked a from scratch meal for us every night. I took an interest at an early age in cooking and learned a lot by helping and watching my mother in the kitchen. Today that tradition is carried on my household in that I also like to cook every night. I will be bringing you the best of British recipes from across the pond made with real ingredients that are from scratch.
