About my blog

My love for creating great food led me to begin Vikalinka, a blog devoted to delicious meals and fresh flavours. My recipes are designed for home cooks with a flair for style and wholesome ingredients. And through Vikalinka Travels, my readers are able to experience food and culture alongside tips for making the most of family travel.

I am also very passionate about photography and styling. My photography has been featured on popular sites such as Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, MSN, Daily Express, Stylist, Yahoo, All Parenting and TheKitchn as well as published in print in various international magazines in the United States, Germany, Japan and United Kingdom. 

I have teamed up with various local and international companies for recipe development. My well-known clients include Grana Padano, Rioja wine board, Twinings, Old El Paso, Bertolli, Splenda, Visit Norway and more.

About me

I am Julia, a food and travel writer and photographer, formerly an English teacher turned a full time blogger.

I have always had a passion for cooking, which I inherited from my mother, who was my first teacher in the kitchen. Later in university I worked part time as a cook in a professional kitchen, where I gained more understanding of the cooking process and flavour combinations. I also got introduced to many international dishes I knew nothing about.

Since then I've traveled the world and have always brought home a little piece of my travels in the form of a dish, which I often share with my readers. I love the community that my blog has allowed me to create!
