Hi! I’m Lily and welcome to Gastro Senses, a blog about delicious recipes with step by step cooking instructions and beautiful photography! I’m so glad you’re here!
I am a native Ukrainian girl, currently residing in Toronto, Canada. I started this blog in 2014 as a way to catalog my treasured recipes. Here you will find the foods I grew up with, reinvented oldies with my own spin on it, as well as the new finds that are just too good not to post about.
My husband Dmitriy, whom I met during the student adventure of cultural exchange program in United States more than ten years ago, helps me with a technical side of the website. We have been navigating this crazy life together sharing our gastronomic enthusiasm with our son Tihon and two fur babies. They love food too and we love watching them having a healthy appetite.
In the beginning of 2015, I quit my full-time job to pursue blogging and food photography full-time. Now I have a privilege of being a stay at home mom and doing what I love most. Spending time in the kitchen is my “me” time, which inspires and challenges me. Because at the end of the day, sharing my passion for cooking and motivating others to be creative with food – is what makes me very happy. A few of my other favorite things are eating late night treats, silly singing and dancing with my son, and snuggling my fur babies.
