The Hill Food Co Team – Sureyya
8th March 2017
Meet lovely Sureyya, who has been interning with us for the last couple of weeks. We love surrounding ourselves with people who love our little food world as much as we do and Sureyya’s passion for food is clear on her own blog The Giggly Fig . Sureyya has been helping us with curating our enormous archive of photos, writing blog posts and taking snaps of our new canapés.
‘I am 19 and am currently on a gap year before heading off to university in September, to study History of Art. Food and cookery have always been passions of mine, having always been central to my family and upbringing. However, I have never been able to devote my attention entirely to them. Therefore this year is an exciting year to wholeheartedly immerse myself in the food world through travelling abroad, discovering the hidden gems in London and other cities, experimenting with new recipes and practicing my food writing and photography through work experience and my own personal food blog. Although I enjoy all aspects of cooking, baking holds a special place in my heart, having grown up on the home-baking of my great-grandmothers, grandmothers, auntie and mother, whether it be through the treats themselves or passed down recipes. This appreciation for nostalgia in cookery has given me a fondness for simple, honest, down-to-earth food as this, I believe, brings the most joyful and meaningful food experiences.’
