We are a Maltese family of 5 based in London who love to cook homemade recipes. Daddy is a full time chef and mummy is a full time corporate receptionist, so considering the lack of time to spend in the kitchen on a daily basis, we always look out for family food ideas that will still give us the satisfaction and the much needed energy to get through the days.
Both of us have worked in restaurants and hotels which include some of the world’s renowned such as Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland, the Savoy Hotel in London and Relais & Chateaux restaurants in Paris.
Even though we’ve seen the delicate creations of master chefs throughout the years, learnt a lot and stuck around, less refined home-cooked food had always been much more inspiring. So finally after many pushes from Jas, we have come up with this venture because it’s more about real life cooking than fancy plating, something everybody comes across every single day.
During our work experiences we encountered a lot of families who struggle to prepare easy recipes on a daily basis. This gave us the idea to start helping families with our step-by-step recipes. Later we developed our cooking YouTube channel robandjas where you can find various video recipes with chicken, fish, meat, pasta , soups and pastry. We also decided to start our food blog where we share our thoughts and tips in making this happen.
As much as we love to explore all kinds of cuisines, we have a Maltese background so Mediterranean food is one of our favourites. We like to use fresh produce as much as we can but for when time is extra limited we tend to stock our freezer with veggies, fish, meat and poultry.
Food is something Jas and I love creating and it’s proving excitement, lots of fun and entertainment whilst learning a whole lot of new stuff in the world of social media and shooting videos for our YouTube channel !
Jas and I hope you enjoy our cooking as much as we do and it would be great to hear your views on our Facebook page or in our comments section at the bottom of each recipe on our website here.
We look forward to have you all on board 🙂
