So, now that the travel update is out of the way and you know what I’ve been up to, I am free to ramble on about the amazing foods I’ve tried over the last year on my travels. Mexico was a wonderful territory to revisit. When I say this I don’t mean that I’ve been there before, but that my parents owned two Mexican restaurants … Continue reading Mexico: a first impression
One of my favourite home comforts is soup. Growing up in the mountains in France, soup is a staple for most households; the snow falling outside as you warm your cheeks and and fill your nostril with the full smell of a courgette soup makes me want to cozy up with a blanket and a good book.

Home of sauerkraut and known for its sausages, the cuisine truly reflects the cultures … Continue reading Christmas markets in Alsace: the snack edition.
A few weeks ago, when I was still stateside and basking in the Floridian sunshine, my boyfriend Lachie and I decided to take a day trip from our AirBnB stay in West Palm Beach to head to Miami. Following the suggestion of a friend we headed straight to Wynwood, the funky street art district of the ocean-side city. Wynwood is many things, but mainly it’s … Continue reading REVIEW: Wynwood walls and 1800-Lucky, MIAMI
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)
