Hi! I’m Gabriella. I like to cook, bake, eat and feed people. I live by the river in South West London with my Swiss-Italian boyfriend and no pets/babies. Sorry!

My background is quite mixed (Armenian/European) and as a result my taste in food is too. Team that with all of the inspiration I’ve picked up on travels to near and faraway places and you’ve got Thyme & Honey, my little space on the internets where I share recipes and the occasional travel story. Expect wholesome ingredients, odes to Italy, Middle Eastern flavours and on occasion, a borderline sickening amount of butter and chocolate.

Thanks for stopping by!

some things I love

halloumi cheese, hummus, chocolate, sausage dogs, anticipating travel, mountains, whisky cocktails, jasmine flowers

some things I loatheΒ 

chocolate covered peanuts, commuting, the dark, sand in shoes, lemongrass, baked avocado, two and a half men, disembodied hair

If you’d like to get in touch with me I’d love to hear from you. You can reach me via the contact page.

    Scrolling through your blog I see so many fresh wholesome foods and it makes me so happy! It’s so refreshing to read all your recipes. As an avid avocado eater (try saying that 5 times fast) I can’t wait to try the guac recipe. I’m a blogger as well with an only slightly different cause-gardening. I work with a company called Cayisa to promote learning gardens, sustainable gardening, and reforestation. Cayisa also sells some awesome jewerly to support their cause. You should check out the website ( and the blog (! Thanks!
