Sarah Graham – Bitten
Tell Us About Yourself:
As of October last year Johannesburg is now our home. Having moved from Cape Town (Sarah used to live in the same area that I do), I approached the move with the usual disdain (for anywhere other than the mother city), that one would expect from Capetonians 😉 I have however been pleasantly surprised.
My goal in life is to raise content and considerate children, in a happy home with my amazing husband, to continue cooking with abandon for as long as I love it.
Where Do You Find Your Inspiration?
I am motivated and inspired by my family, friends and my love of food.
What Are Your Strengths & Weaknesses?
I am not afraid of a challenge or hard work! I also like to think of myself as considerate and objective. On the flip side I can be impatient and feel that sometimes I am not spontaneous enough.
What Are Your Fears?
My biggest fear is rushing through life, getting to the other end and not having savoured all the special moments along the way.
What Keeps You Busy?
(Besides for being a mom, writing a blog and publishing a cook book!)
I am one of the founders and now marketing director for an award-winning responsible tourism company, www.africanimpact.com.
What Do You Do To Let Your Hair Down?
I love to socialize and cook. I spend my free time going to the movies, reading, doing Pilates and I love spending time in the bush.
What Is Your Favourite Foodie Website?
One of my best SA food websites for everything from recipes, to shopping and restaurant reviews is Eat In, who recently featured my book and my very precious 6 Minute Chocolate Cake Recipe.
What Do You Feel Your Biggest Success In Life Is?
Having a baby and so far being a reasonable Mum 🙂 Writing and publishing my cook book, entitled Bitten, which is currently available for purchase, in stores in South Africa and online.
What Has Been Your Greatest Challenge In Life?
Without a doubt – having a baby and being a parent has been my biggest challenge, it teaches you amazing selflessness, commitment, hard work and an overwhelming sense of unconditional love.
Thanks Sarah for sharing a bit about your life with us, we definitely share a passion for food and I look forward to trying more of your recipes! We wish you every success with your cook book and your life as a Mum.
