Dorothy Porker

About Dorothy Porker

“This wasn’t just plain terrible, this was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it.” – Dorothy Parker

Hello there! You may be wondering, who is this woman surrounded by all this ridiculous food?

My name isn’t actually Dorothy, it’s Mieke. I’m an avid reader, aspiring writer and fanatical home cook from the Netherlands, with a sharp tongue and love for Dorothy Parker and so Dorothy Porker was born.

It’s okay if you don’t get the literary reference, as long as you stay for the food.

This is the second incarnation of Dorothy Porker. I’d let it go a few years ago when I got a very demanding job, but people kept bringing it up:”Aren’t you the one with the amazing foodblog?” And so I’m back.

I’m hugely into comfort food and big and bold flavors. I try and keep it healthy, but I don’t try very hard.
