About Me

Alors, ça c’est une petite redaction sur moi, l’auteur de cette site.

Bonjour! My name is Andrea Makamba, and if you haven’t gathered by now, I speak both English and French. Fact #1

Fact #2, I am not an actual qualified food scientist. Just a science student with a crazy passion for cooking.

I am 18 years old, living in Zimbabwe (Southern Africa, the country that is shaped like a teapot). I love it here. The open veld spaces, favourable weather, friendly people, what isn’t there to love about this country?
I’m just a teenage girl, stuck in that awkward purgatory having just finished high school and waiting to go to university. Where am I going? The University of Pennsylvania- go Quakers! And what would I like to study? At the moment, I’m stuck between Mechanical Engineering, Physics and Applied Mathematics. What can I say? I’m a nerd of the highest order.

When I’m not cooking, reading books or binge watching Adventuretime, I pass my time in the great outdoors. I play sport all year round, dividing my time between cross country, athletics, tennis, soccer and cycling. I have represented the Zimbabwe National tennis team. Fact #3.

I am a self taught cook, and a lot of my influence comes from my aunt, who infected me with the cooking vibe at a young age, and is probably the reason why I still spend so much time in the kitchen today. What a lot of people don’t like about my cooking is the fact that I add spices. A lot of them. My dad likes to think that I empty out the entire spice cabinet into every dish and I’d like to think that maybe that’s only true most of the time. One of the things that redeems me is my decadent desserts. I am notorious for baking rich, sweet desserts that leave your mouth with the most wonderful taste, but your favourite jeans looking for a new owner.

Look forward to hearing from you!
