Hi, nice to meet you. My name is Lauren Cooke, and I am the blogger behind Chooks and Cooks.
As you might be able to tell already, I’m a lover of puns with a bad sense of humour and a lifestyle that is becoming more rural as the minutes tick by. I live in a cute little cottage in the middle of Warwickshire, England, where I am kept company by my husband (Andy), two cats (Jensen and Izzy, named respectively after the Jensen Interceptor and Isembard Kingdom Brunel – yes, we are geeks) and two chickens that we won at our local village fête by entering the best pair of names, Veloci and Raptor. Turns out the local vet is a Jurassic Park fan.
Why am I blogging?
I decided it was timeto start blogging again after a summer of jam making, foraging, cooking experiments and house redecorations. In short, I discovered a passion for my strange, quirky little corner of the universe and all the endless chutneys and burnt saucepans that go along with it.
I’m currently trying to be more ethical and considered in the lifestyle Andy and I lead, part of which is reducing waste, eating better quality, free range meat and planning a lot of garden growing and veg planting.
If you have any questions at all, ask in the comments!
