Welcome to all food lovers, to all explorers of different cooking, to all of you who love to eat and want to find new places to enjoy food.

About me

My name is Irma and for 10 years I have been cooking for my family and friends. Two years ago I started with food photography and with exploring recipes and adapting them to my liking. During this period of two years, at least once per week I was asked why don’t I start my own web about food and cooking. Apparently I have finally ceded before presures because here you are on my own online gastro magazine.

Blog

Aside from recipes, I will try to write up gastro stories from my travels. A specific part of the magazine is the section Gastronomad(s), because I eat in restaurants frequently and I will gladly share those experiences and reviews of restaurant I visit.

About Chakula

Why chakula? Chakula in Swahili language means food. At the same time in Dalmatia and in the wider Meditteranean, ćakulati means to have a casual conversation, as we mostly do with good food we our dear people. Well that is exactly how I see this part of my online work and I hope we will have a fun times together over food.
