The Foodie's Corner

The Foodie's Corner

When I met my best friend some 25 years ago, I was someone who didn't like food much. I am grateful that our friendship introduced me to the joys of the palate and that I recently became a person who loves experimenting in her kitchen and exploring new flavors and dishes. Yup. That's my culinary metamorphosis...

This section will expose a zest of my creativity in regards to my not so "by-the-book" mixes of various foods. I herewith invite you to embark with me on a culinary journey, what I concoct is mostly simple and tasty hihi. It that might not be the most daring way to mix things together but it surely is a very colorful one :) I also share with you food health tips, because as Hippocrates expressed it a long time ago: "Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food".
