so that you can 

eat well, cook better, live more



We’re all on some kind of a journey with food and cooking.


Do you order a simple espresso, or a grande capulata-skini-chini-thingy… and do you even care what a ‘dirty burger’ is?

Do you love to spend time playing your kitchen mandoline… or do you have a cupboard full of kitchen tools but never seem to have the right one for the job ?


Stressed COOKS

This blog is for you if you hate cooking and are done with going round and round in circles searching for real advice online. You’ve run out of time, and desperately need to simplify a busy life.


COOKS lacking confidence

This blog is for you if you are pretty good at cooking, like to experiment, but run out of confidence when it comes to a ‘performance’, a deadline, or the feeling of being judged. Maybe you self-sabotage, and it’s all downhill from there. Let us help you with simple tools and tips, to help give you confidence and make your life calmer.


Wanna-be CHEFS

This blog is for you if you want to know the tricks of the trade, what’s hot and what’s not, and need to channel your inner domestic god…ess!


We’ve been all of these. But now we have made more time, got more experience, and want to help feed you the good stuff, so…

We hope you are hungry…

for relevant, honest information to help you understand food and cooking more. Life is a journey, and we’re well down the road ourselves, so let us help you find time to use both your brain, and your Braun !

Let’s clarify and simplify !


We can help you make that kitchen work better for you? We will cut through all that chaotic, biased, or incorrect information we see online, and review things that we believe in, or that we love to use – with both obsession and passion. And, oh, we definitely obsess over detail.


We learn it. We use it. We live it.


We aren’t the cooking experts, just the messenger, living and loving the foodie journey ourselves. We want to be your expert messenger. We’ll simplify the best information, and introduce the best cooking expertise. It’s a  hugely complex online world, so we’ll feed you what you need, so that you can get on with cooking more, and better.

Kitchen equipment… food preparation tools

This is the main section, and we started with hand blenders because we’ve used them most of our lives, and with our new simplified life, it’s the one kitchen tool we couldn’t do without!  It’s probably most people’s first kitchen gadget, and a great present to buy a student or new home owner. But, for the more advanced, a powerful one can be the best multi-tasker.  Just keep adding accessories as you build up your portfolio of techniques!
