Hi, I’m Ren, a British food writer of Polish descent.

Following a career break from law, I began writing a blog here at renbehan.com and completed a Diploma in Food Journalism. I am now a mum of three and for the past 13 years, I have been writing about food for online and print publications. Five years ago I returned to law, but I have continued with my recipe and book writing. I hope that some of the recipes here will continue to be of relevance to you.

My first cookbook, Wild Honey and Rye, Modern Polish Recipes, was published by Pavilion Books (UK) and by Interlink Books (USA) in 2017. Writing the book gave me the wonderful opportunity of drawing upon both my Polish heritage and my trips to Poland. 

My second cookbook, The Sweet Polish Kitchen, is a love letter to Polish patisserie, puddings and bakes with chapters on Polish Classics, Layer cakes, carnival treats, seasonal recipes, pancakes and pierogi and no-bake desserts. It has recently been published both in the U.K. and the USA.

I hope you’ll love them. Please consider leaving me an Amazon review, they really help!
