Hello and welcome to VIKALINKA!

I am Julia, I am a wife to my amazingly supportive husband, a mother to two incredibly cute and clever children, an adventurous cook in my tiny London kitchen and an English teacher and a translator. I’ve been fascinated by creating food as long as I remember. Experimenting in the kitchen with new recipes and strange unknown foods is one of my favourite pastimes! I’ve never been intimidated by tackling any recipe and my goal in creating this blog is to show my readers how simple and fun making delicious food could be!

I am a Russian Canadian who lives in London, UK but it’s most likely not the last place for us as a family. England is the 5th country I’ve lived in the last 15 years. I love to experience new cultures and their cuisines and my food reflects the cross-cultural setting of my life.

Please visit often, get inspired and comment, comment, comment!

    • Thank you :-). It wasn’t really the intention for it to look Russian/Ukrainian, it was actually shot in Paris but I agree it does look quite Ukrainian. I have a similar shot when I was 5, shot in Lvov, Ukraine.:-)
