Getting to the root of it all.

Welcome to my site. My name is Agnes Borowik. Here’s a little bit about me. My relationship with food began in my early childhood in Poland during the solidarity movement. Food was scarce so we were grateful for the food stamps we received. I believe this taught me to respect and value food at an early age. Watching my mom prepare delicious meals with the available ingredients, sparked my curiosity around meal planning and recipe development. After moving to Canada, as I continued to watch my mother who never cooked from recipes, I began to participate. She had the “bible” of a cookbook from Poland for reference but she always did her own thing. I think that inspired my own creativity with cuisine.

When I finally went of my own my love for cooking and creating grew, and out came the camera as well and so did my styling and photography interest. While I developed a career in Graphic Design I was always shooting on in my spare time. Graphic design helped train my eye to see and analyze the composition of a photo, and figure out the best angles to get best appetite appeal. Being exposed to the many areas of marketing in the food industry really helped me explore my creativity form so many angles. As I tried on different hats, which also included art direction/set styling and food styling.

Travel was another calling that was growing. Each trip always led to the next trip planning. My camera, as well as my husband, were and are my constant companions.

In the last few years, it became obvious to me that I needed to combine my knowledge and skills which I learned through my curiosity and thirst for learning. I want to offer other business owner all my skills to help them manage and succeed in their businesses and save them valuable time so they can enjoy it with their families.
