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.

    Adrienne. this is a lovely blog. Food, nice writing, pretty pictures. Good job. If you add a subscription thingy I’ll subscribe…then you’ll have four. I’ve been blogging for three, four years now and I’m probably up to 20! Miss you. And as you know you have incredibly beautiful kids. Good job there too.

    1. Marj! Hi! Thanks so much for the compliments and feedback. Adding an obvious subscribe link will be my next step. And now that I’ve found your blog I’m going to binge read your posts to see all of the incredible places you’ve been and your always interesting perspective. We’re still in London if you ever decide to repeat countries- I would love to introduce you to Nick and the girls! Miss you and the Land of Enchantment!

    1. Thanks, Lucy! Glad I’m not alone in my take on markets/food shops when traveling too 😉 I could wander their aisles forever!
