HELLO, NICE TO MEET YOU
And welcome to Our Modern Kitchen.
Allow us to make introductions - we are a young couple, Sam and Carmen, and together, we live with a severe addiction - that most marvellous of rituals we all partake in.
It is no exaggeration to suggest that food forms a huge part of our relationship, if we are not eating, it’s usually because we are cooking and if we are not eating or cooking, most likely we are talking about food we have just eaten or food we want to eat.
However, this affection should not be confused with some gluttonous indulgence in gourmandization. Far from it in fact, it is the invention that we love – the endless possibilities that quality ingredients and a well stocked kitchen afford.
We are lucky enough to live in the heart of London – a real cultural melting pot, where we have access to as wide a range of ingredients, restaurants and influences as you could possibly hope for. Providing you know where to look of course. It is this privilege that our modern city affords - access to ingredients that 20 years ago most likely would have been unheard of, that cultivated our desire to share our passion with a wider audience.
Anyone can cook, and we hope to inspire and excite fellow foodies with our own creations. And so we invite you all to join us in Our Modern Kitchen.
