I use food and words in attempt to connect; to people, to history, to culture.
I’ve been working on this site (and a previous blog called Coffee in a Tea Cup) on and off for the last seven years, in between work, kids, travel and the daily grind.
I’m a food writer, content creator, pr manager, cultural anthropologist, former dancer/choreographer, blog enthusiast, cookery school advocate, kitchen putterer, city wanderer, forest lover, American ex-pat, wife and mother of two little girls with big appetites. And that’s just on Monday.
When I travel, food markets and grocery stores are my museums.
When I want to tell someone I love them, I make them something to eat.
When I want to understand something better, I sit down at the table with a big cup of coffee and a bit of time.
And I am a firm believer that all of the best parties start on the dance floor and end in the kitchen.
Hope you’re able to find something here you like; something that makes you happy or nostalgic or just full, whatever you’re after. I’d love to hear your thoughts on what I write or what memories or kitchen inspiration it might trigger.
