|My Ealing - Sophie Cook|
Blogging sisters who are up for a 'tasty' award
Sophie, 28, and younger sister, Emily, 26 didn't have to search hard for a name for their website.
Apart from cooking, the sisters have a passion for dogs, the outdoors and world travel.
Sophie tells us a bit more about what she likes about Ealing and shares a few of the most popular recipes on the blog.
When did you both move to Ealing and why?
I moved to Ealing last month and purchased a flat with my partner in W13. Emily is living with us temporarily, while see relocates to London from Dusseldorf. The community spirit in Ealing was the first thing that really stood out to us, this combined with the close vicinity to Heathrow and the West made it the perfect choice.
Walpole Park and Pitzhanger Manor. The beautiful Edwardian streets. Poisson Fishmongers on Northfields Ave. Everything is on your doorstep in Ealing!
Parking is a bit of a problem on our Road. Unfortunately, there are no resident parking permits in place so it's difficult to find a spot, especially on the weekends
Both of our parents were keen cooks so I guess it's something that we picked up naturally. We both started cooking at a very young age. My favourite meal as a child was Sausages and Mash - my Dad's mash potato was a family special! Emily's favourite was a Fish Finger sandwich in fresh white bread. We still love to serve up these classics from time to time!
Yes definitely. It's all about practice and experimentation. However, in order to make something good I think you need to enjoy and have a passion for food.
We wanted to create a collection of enjoyable and balanced recipes. Health and nutrition is really important to us but often a guilt-filled treat is just a part of life. We like to include a wide-range of recipes that everyone can make and enjoy.
Santa Maria Pizzeria is my current favourite! I'm a big fan of Italian food and this is in my opinion the best pizza in London.
I'm yet to find a really good gastropub or somewhere to go for a proper Sunday roast. However, I still have a lot of exploring to do!
We'd love to and it's a possibility! Watch this space :)
