I like cooking and I like collecting recipes. I’ve been collecting recipes since I left home and was forced to cook for other people.

I put my recipes on-line in 2001 on the parent Balagan site. By 2013 it was obvious that the food content did not fit with the rest so I moved to a dedicated foodie site. Balagan Recipes was born.

Some of these recipes date from quite early on and are really at best “flatting food”. Other, usually more recent recipes, are quite good. If I’ve tried something and it didn’t work then I’ll say so; perhaps you can tell me what I did wrong.

Have fun
