Hey there! Welcome to Anna Banana! I'm Anna, a recipe creator, food photographer and food stylist behind this blog.
A Little Bit About Me
I was born and raised in small town in Poland, surrounded by lakes, woods and unforgettable countryside. And since 2003, I have been discovering the beauty of English countryside, as I moved to the UK.
Growing up, I was always surrounded by delicious, honest and homemade food. Passion for good food runs in my family for generations, and we do love to feed others!
I created this blog in 2017, as an outlet to express my passion for baking and food photography. Back then, I was working in the office, in the corporate accountancy environment, managing a team of lovely people. But somewhere deep inside, I knew that something was missing... So in September 2017 I took the plunge and made a decision to quit and make food photography and blogging my full-time job. It was the best decision of my life!
When I'm not busy baking in the kitchen, I enjoy discovering new places, especially around English countryside. I love spending time outdoors, it relaxes me and makes me feel alive. I'm a keen wannabe gardener, hiker, book reader, Netflix binger and meme addict.

More About Anna and the Blog
I currently use Canon 5D mark IV and I love it. Previously, I used Canon 6D, which I'm still very fond of. You can also read more about my equipment on My Gear page.
It's been my nickname, given to me by my friends, so I'm just rolling with it!
Firstly, I'm sooo excited that you want to try baking, and that you're here! My brownies had a lot of success with newbie bakers, especially my Chocolate Cherry Brownies. That said, Chocolate Chip Cookies will also be a good starting point!
Yes, I do. Check out my Anna W Photography website, which is also my portfolio.
