ABOUT ME

My blog is based on two of my greatest passions next to my family, cooking and travelling.  I have always wanted to share all the recipes I have developed over the years and tales of my worldwide travels.  I have never had the time until the lockdown2020.  I am making the most of the imposed quarantine and loving it. Not the quarantine the blogging.    I am a home cook not a professional so all my recipes were made in my own kitchen for my family.  I hope you enjoy!
