Welcome to the COOK hub on The Purple Pumpkin Blog!

I love to cook and have been cooking for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the catering industry, with my parents managing restaurants, so it’s in my blood! I am part Greek-Cypriot, part Lithuanian, so have a diverse background in different culinary styles and am grateful for the knowledge that has been passed down from my grandmothers.

Over the years I have shared over 500 recipes on my blog, and the list will continue to grow.

There are party food recipes, cupcake recipes for parties, cocktails, recipes for seasonal events, international cuisines, and more! From savoury to sweet, from spring through to winter, there are lots of delicious recipes to choose from and try out at home.

Food & Drink Reviews

From time to time I am sent food and drinks products to sample at home and review. If they are ingredients, I will always try to incorporate them into a recipe that I can share with you. If I can’t use products in a recipe, then it’ll be a straight up Food & Drink Review! Read my FOOD & DRINKS REVIEWS here. We also love dining out, so here are my RESTAURANT REVIEWS.


Foodie Events

My husband and I love going to foodie events – whether it is a pop-up restaurant, a blogger event, or a food festival here in the UK or overseas! Read about these FOODIE EVENTS here.
