Back home in the land of CHEESE, BREAD and WINE (aka La France)

The past few weeks have been an absolute whirlwind. I have had many a delicious meal which I’ve tried to keep up on my instagram, but I just haven’t been able to find the time to sit and write. This whole blogging thing is new to me afterall! My boyfriend and I have scored a job together in the elusive career path that we have … Continue reading Back home in the land of CHEESE, BREAD and WINE (aka La France)

Hello.

So yesterday I turned 25, in New Orleans in the US and I, as always, celebrated by eating all day. Like, a LOT. I would quite literally choose death over the loss of my tastebuds. Dramatic? Maybe. For a number of years now I have often toyed with the idea of writing down how I feel about food and turning it into an ode to … Continue reading Hello.
