Welcome! I’m Janette and I am the author, recipe developer, photographer, videographer and resident redhead behind Culinary Ginger. I’m originally from England, currently living in Los Angeles, California.
What’s in a name? As you can see, I’ve always been a ginger and this blog is all about the ginger. Ginger hair, ginger in the food, Culinary Ginger.
I grew up in a household with 4 siblings where my mother cooked a from scratch meal for us every night. I took an interest at an early age in cooking and learned a lot by helping and watching my mother in the kitchen and I have been enjoying cooking as often as I could since then. Today that tradition is carried on my household in that I also like to cook every night. I like to use only fresh ingredients, no processed or pre-packaged foods are allowed in my kitchen. I like to try new recipes and adapt current ones from all cuisines. I sometimes think I should have gone to culinary school instead of fashion school, but I would probably be working in the fast-pased restaurant business rather than the casual environment of my kitchen. I hope you enjoy what’s cooking every week and I hope you make, and enjoy my recipes.
