Hello, it’s nice to meet you
I’m Ashika, author, cook, and gardener behind The Gardening Foodie. I live in the sunshine city of Durban in South Africa, with my husband, Roshan, my two sons, Kiran and Keshav and my four fur babies… Max, Lucky, Jake and Muffin. Here everyday is a perfect day to be pottering around in the garden or cooking and baking something delicious in my kitchen.
Gardening is such a great passion of mine, that I even save seeds from any fruit or veg and try to regrow it. Remember your garden can be a huge plot of land or just a few pots on the patio, it’s still gardening, and alway enjoyable to work with. I am always looking for simple cost-effective ways to grow my veggies and herbs, and I look forward to sharing these ideas with you and would love to hear your ideas as well.
There is such a great feeling when you bring in herbs or vegetables from your garden into your kitchen to use in your recipes. I love using fresh ingredients in my baking and cooking… it just tastes so great.
I always feel that cooking and baking is perfected by time and patience and something that you can always put your personal touch on and that is why all of my recipes are so simple and versatile where you can change ingredients to your liking and guaranteed it will still be delicious.
Remember homemade is always better and more delicious. You always have control of the ingredients going into your recipe.
