Hi, and welcome to No Frills Kitchen! I’m Maggie, a passionate home cook who wants to help you gain confidence and prowess in the kitchen with no fancy equipment required.

As a full-time world traveller (I also run the website The World Was Here First with my partner, Michael), I’m always experiencing new cuisines and flavours and trying to recreate them at home. And, because we’re on the road so often, I’m also always trying to cook familiar foods and healthy meals in kitchens all over the world. Because of this, I have learned to be innovative, how to improvise and how to cook basically anything without any expensive equipment or gadgets.

I’ve become something of a minimalist cook and have come to learn that once you master the fundamental techniques and learn about essential flavours, then it is possible to create just about anything in the kitchen. All that’s needed is a bit of confidence!

Through my travels, I’ve also expanded my repertoire and am always keen to try and recreate unique world cuisines at home. Through living in the beautiful city of Tbilisi, for instance, I have cultivated a love for Georgian food (and wine!) and from traversing across Europe, have discovered countless unique ways to prepare food.

I spend much of my free time in the kitchen and have a host of knowledge and tips to share with you. So thanks for making it over to this space and I hope that we can share some recipes together!
