"The discovery of a new dish does more for human happiness than
the discovery of a new star"
- Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin
Growing up, it was the norm to either be talking about food, eating food, or cooking.
You talk about what you are cooking, then you talk about what you are eating, or you talk about past meals which have been memorable, and finally you talk about what you ate.
Kurt Vonnegut has a point when he says "You can't just eat good food. You've got to talk about it too."
And so, I'm talking about it with you.
I've loved food since I was a little girl, and being raised in an international environment has broadened this as my travels have taken me to 40+ countries. Each culture has a different approach to food and all are amazing, from the Michelin starred restaurants to the kitchen of a housewife. The worst part of the expat life is having to build a new life every time you move. The best part is figuring out the people, the culture, and the food when building that new life.
Cooking makes me happy. It de-stresses me. And it has the added value of making others happy. There is no point in cooking for yourself; half the pleasure comes from sharing in the experience.
I take the majority of all the photos myself (and if they're not mine, photo credit is given).
Usually with an SLR Nikon D3100 because its super simple to use. And sometimes, when inspiration strikes and I've left my camera at home, with an iPhone.
I hope you enjoy traveling, cooking, and eating with me.
“The only real stumbling block is fear of failure. In cooking you've got to have a what-the-hell attitude.”
― Julia Child
