I’m passionate about cooking, eating, and exploring different tastes.
A lover of books, good music, travels, and Claude Monet painting. In the morning, you will find me in the kitchen with a cup of good coffee.
The story behind this food blog
How it all started – my roods in the kitchen
For as long as I can remember, I’ve liked cooking. My first cooking adventure began in my childhood in my grandmother’s kitchen. She taught me how to make perfect noodles for soup. There, I learned the basics of cooking and the tricks I use for many of my recipes. The following cooking memories were from my mom’s cookbooks. At the age of 8, I wanted to make my first snails harvested from a nearby forest… that’s when I started looking for different flavors…. I made my first cake myself when I was ten as a surprise gift for my mom.
Looking for flavors and inspiration
I look for flavors in many ways by reading books, traveling, in restaurants, and in random places, such as a small church in Rhodes, Greece, where I ate the most delicious Greek salad.
Cookbooks are my next passion. I have over 100 of them, but I am still looking for more at flea markets, bookstores, or even in libraries. It’s an essential part of my culinary flavor journeys.
Videos and everything related to cooking and experimenting in the kitchen is crucial to my recipes.
Why a food blog?
I am a mother of two children; I have a happy family with whom I like to celebrate meals at the table. The dining room and kitchen are the centers of our home life, and children often inspire me to test new flavors or even recipes. For me, the blog is sharing my recipes with others and fun and an additional drive wheel for experiments in the kitchen.
