"Food speaks when words fail. Food loves when actions fail. Food is who you are, where you’re from and the very meaning of how we develop throughout our lives. Whether you care much about food or not it’s a constant. I see food as treasure, a source of joy and a base for my creative self to come out. I cannot imagine my life without the food I’ve been brought up with, the memories, the smells and of course the people behind the food itself. One of my earliest sweet treats was this, mum’s Persian quince jam toast, delicately flavoured with saffron and honey and lots of salted butter on thick toast. This is my childhood on a plate." Niki from Nikibakes.
