Hi I’m Vanya, welcome to VJcooks.com.
I live in Taupo with my husband, two young sons and Golden Retriever. I love cooking, baking, sharing recipes and of course eating.
When I am not in the kitchen I like to hang out with my awesome kids, swim in the lake, walk my dog and go mountain biking.
Before moving to beautiful Taupo in 2016 I lived in Auckland and Art Directed Taste, Good Health and CLEO magazines.
I also worked in the design teams of many other NZ and UK magazines.
I set up my Facebook page VJ Cooks in November 2016 as a place to share my recipe videos with friends and family and show how easy and exciting cooking can be, it has grown into a fun and engaged community.
