Ferret Chef is an endorsement and advertising free site. All the opinions on food and kitchen equipment I offer are my own views.
I started this site as a happy to keep myself busy following a car accident which has left me housebound in severe chronic pain and unable to return to my job as a Community Pharmacy Manager. It was a job I really loved, I loved helping people and found the job deeply rewarding. Unfortunately the consultants do not think I will recover enough to do my old job and it is likely my pain will never go away. I suppose you don’t really realise how lucky you are until you lose what you had.
I started this blog because I have always loved cooking and eating good food. Before my accident I was lucky to have travelled extensively round Europe, North Africa, North America and the Far East, sampling some amazing food on the way. I use these memories as inspiration to create my recipes.
As a child in Scotland I rarely encountered exotic or spicy foods, with holidays being the only time I would be lucky enough to try new foods. Times have truly changed and it is n ow possible to order food from around the world to your home round the clock. Although personally I find cooking my own food to be far more rewarding, and tastier.
This blog is really just a hobby, I don’t harbour any hidden dreams of fame or fortune. I really write the blog as a way of keeping myself busy and because I love creating recipes. I have over 50 recipes on my blog so far with many more to come. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and will continue to keep visiting for new recipes.
I find advertising to be very annoying and think it ruins the experience on so many websites. Equally I find it disappointing that so many blogs have hidden advertising in the form of paid endorsements, which are disguised as honest opinions when they are not. To this end I have decided to place a buy me a coffee donation link, via KO-FI. If you like my recipes please feel free to donate via the link below, any donation is most welcome.
