Hola! I’m Päivi, vegan food lover, originally from Finland but living in Madrid, Spain. Tikamo focuses on simple, nutritious and gluten free recipes. My style to cook is intuitively from a scratch. I think that cooking should be creative, flexible and fun! Here you can also read stories of simple vegan life outside the kitchen.
I’ve always been passionate about food and cooking; I grew up learning from my mother and grandmothers, eating seasonal whole foods, foraging berries, mushrooms, greens, and gardening. Later in life, my mentor has been my sister who is a professional chef and a raw cake wizard. I get inspired by travels, books, eating out, fresh produce and getting lost in nature as well as in every supermarket everywhere I go. I love spices, different food cultures, hot sauce, music, green juice, coffee, wine (balance!) and road trips.
Food has a huge impact on our lives, it can make us healthier, happier and more connected to the world. Becoming vegan over four years ago has made me more compassionate, mindful and conscious of what i support as consumer beyond food.
