Team Salt & Lavender

About Natasha

Natasha Bull is the founder, recipe developer, and photographer behind Salt & Lavender and author of the Salt & Lavender: Everyday Essentials cookbook. She lives in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. She doesn’t subscribe to any particular diet and likes to eat a bit of everything in moderation, especially a good steak. Her love of salt was inherited from her Czech mom, whom she learned the basics of cooking from. During her time at the University of Alberta for her degree in English, going out into the world on her own inspired Natasha to hone her cooking skills. An entrepreneur at heart, Natasha was destined to create a small business. She loves receiving new comments on recipes and is always happy to answer any cooking questions you may have.
