Hello! – I’m Emily, aka Em N Zest, aka fussy eater turned food lover! A few months ago I followed my heart and moved from London to a small town just outside Zurich in Switzerland, where my passion for cooking (and eating!) just keeps on growing.
Having grown up as a fussy eater, a true expert when it came to painstakingly picking out the carrots that my mum had tried to hide in her shepherd’s pie, I never expected that just a few years later I would be sitting down to write my very own food blog. But here I am, the girl who successfully made it to the age of 20 without ever cracking an egg, now head over heels in love with all things food.
Cooking has become my escape from an action packed city job. My culinary horizons have expanded, and I have started to appreciate the true joy that a delicious meal can bring. Of course, I’m not there yet, there is a long way to go before I can honestly say “I will eat anything”, but I would love for my family, friends and anyone who shares a love of food to come on the journey with me and to share my recipes and exciting new discoveries with you all.
What will you find here?
