Hello, I’m Vaida, Global Garden’s supper coordinator.
I love cooking with locally grown seasonal produce, which makes the whole process so much more rewarding and inspiring. I look for ideas in different world cuisines and traditional cooking that I like to creatively transform into something healthy and delicious.
My approach to food is influenced by the Lithuanian culture that I grew up with, my family and my life in the UK. When I first moved here, I discovered a vast array of new ingredients and recipes. Since then I've become increasingly curious about different ways of cooking and found a new appreciation for my native Baltic and Nordic cuisines.
It’s deeply fulfilling for me to cook a nourishing meal with lots of hidden tastes that creep in slowly and overwhelm you with all kinds of gentle and satisfying sensations.
