About me

Hi y’all! My name is Dunja. I was born in Novi Sad, Serbia, and that’s where I’ve spent the largest portion of my life so far.

I started cooking a bit when I was around 20 years old. I’d become a vegetarian a few years before, so I didn’t wanna bother my mom to cook especially for me.

Over the years, I’ve encountered plenty of new challenges, both in life and in the kitchen. And bit by bit, I began to realize – Hey I really enjoy this cooking thing! Making up new recipes keeps my imagination awake. The very process of preparing food makes me relaxed and amused. And when I make something and it turns out delicious, it makes me happy- especially if I share it with someone.

Cooking is by no means my primary occupation, nor am I formally educated for it. I graduated in English Language, Literature and Culture. My main occupation is writing, and I do it both for a living and as a hobby. I’ve also dedicated a big part of my life to photography. I write about it at work, and I take photos in my free time.
