Cooking with Vi

About Me

Mommy. Food adventurer. Photographer.

This is my blog with my favorite recipes.

Hi, my name is Viktoria and I love cooking, trying out new recipes, and documenting this adventurous process with photographs on my food blog. Cooking with Vi combines two of my favourite hobbies: cooking and photography. It’s a throwback to my childhood, watching my mother stir her massive pot of Shurpa while my sister and I lurked impatiently.

Since I moved to the Netherlands, these recipes have also become a way of recreating those moments with my 4-year-old daughter, Polina. Each one of my recipes on this blog is child-friendly, as it has been taste-tested by my very fussy and very little, personal food critic.

These are also mommy-friendly, as I spend minimum time in the kitchen to create maximum excitement and flavour payoff. And don't worry, I’ve cooked and tested my recipes multiple times before posting them here, to ensure you get a foolproof recipe that you can whip up with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Between exploring new destinations, experimenting with delectable produce and flavours, and capturing mouth-watering pictures of my food, my life is a colourful adventure that I’d love to share with you through this blog. Join me on this culinary journey seasoned with recipes that I have customized from all over Europe and America. Check out some of my favourite dinner specials here.

Welcome to my blog! My name is Victoria. I love to cook and especially surprise my family with new dishes, and I also take a lot of pictures of everything that surrounds me. These two hobbies inspired me to start a blog where I will be happy to share the most delicious recipes and beautiful photos with you.
