About me | Colette
I AM COOKING I AM EATING I AM SHOPPING I AM DECORATING I AM FOOD DECO
Being the founder and editor in chief of Food Deco, I serve you a little peak into my lively mind dominated by food, cooking, tasting, (online) shopping, styling, drinking red wine, working late, Instagram plus a little this and that. I started an Instagram account – posting all the food I make daily – by the end of 2013. Before that, I had been taking a serious interest in cooking since I was twelve years old (1997: the year my first little black cook book is dated). Many people said to me “I always thought you would do something concerning food”. Not highly unexpected I started doing something else, namely working for printed magazines. A world that had also always fascinated me and which I’ve studied for.
I worked several years for some of the biggest home deco magazines in The Netherlands; vtwonen, Seasons and Home and Garden. For me, always in the back of my mind was the dream of starting my own food company. Meanwhile I was also very into home decoration and everything surrounding it. This is how I came up with this idea and launching this website: putting those two worlds together! A recipe and a matching style, this similarity can be found in structures, colours, shape etc. Hopefully this will give you inspiration to cook but also to decorate! When you don’t feel like cooking I also give you the best alternative for homemade! Furthermore I give you reviews on (non) food products and restaurants; of course I will review them in taste and look and feel.
My weaknesses have always been food and men – in that order. (Dolly Parton) Love x, Colette
