About me

Introduction I'm a foodie, who grew up in Germany, vacationed in Portugal and now lives in Canada. Food is my passion and the flavours of the Algarve is what made me a food lover. Cooking has been a passion of mine since I was 11 years old. I started off by making cakes without a recipe to follow. Mixing eggs, butter and sugar and then some flour seemed easy enough back then. Turns out it still is easy now. Of course I have modified to add different flavours and textures, but cakes are still an easy go. Cooking meals came a couple years later. I always try new things, to please my diverse flavour pallet. My specialty is Southern European cooking and baking. I've travelled to many places trying different flavours everywhere I went. From the best pizza in Italy to the hot out of the oven baguettes in France, the warm aromas in Morocco, the freshest fish in Portugal to the best beef in Brazil. When cooking I am only truly happy if those I am sharing the food with really enjoy it. I studied at a Culinary Arts School, I'm a chef and a certified Artisan Bread Baker.
