Irina Georgescu is a food writer whose work draws on her Eastern European heritage. Irina feels very strongly about exploring the world through food, understanding people through what they eat and putting things in the context of history. It is her love and commitment to talking about Romanian culinary traditions that made her pursue her dream and write about this heritage. Her cooking is inspired by her mother and grandmother, by her life in the busy capital city Bucharest and by her constant explorations into the history and food of her country. Whilst trying to keep close to the traditional ways of cooking, she also brings her own interpretation to these dishes. She was born in Bucharest, Romania, and now lives in the UK.
