Okay, so more about me...
I love food. I love eating food. I love cooking food. I love feeding people food. I love shopping for food. I love travelling for food. I love talking about food. I love dreaming of food. Get the idea?
I'm a tad food obsessed! For awhile I was embarrassed by this, but I've come to see this as part of the unique tapestry that is me. I wouldn't be without this part of me for anything in the world!
After I finished highschool I started cooking a little bit more than I had before. Christmas suddenly involved lots of baking, and making hampers for family and friends.
My first full-time job was working for a now well-known (in Australia) gourmet muesli bakery/factory. Beautiful food, however the owner seemed clueless in the areas of food hygiene! But the place did inspire me on occasion.
What finally cemented my status as foodie was a trip to New York (my favourite place in the world), about two and a half years ago. I had been researching New York City as my dream destination since I was a kid, so I knew where I wanted to go and what I wanted to eat. I hadn't expected my foodie experiences to have such an impact on me.
Two years later, and I was spending a month in Europe at Christmas. Perfect.
Over the next few posts I plan to share a bit more about my trips to New York City and to those special European locations. It's been a while since those journeys, but I am still so inspired by my time spent wandering food markets and visiting amazing restaurants, and those moments are still so relevant to me today.
I hope I can inspire others to visit some of these places and love them as much as I do.
