Milena is a professional recipe developer, photographer, and stylist. She's had the opportunity to work with a variety of food and product brands, helping them enhance their visual appeal. Thanks to her time spent working in restaurants, she learned a lot about different cuisines and cooking techniques. During her three years as a vegan, she has learned a lot about plant-based ways of living and how to cook and substitute ingredients. Driven by her passion and love for food, she returned to being an omnivore and decided to start a food blog where she shares her favorite recipes with everyone.
