There is nothing like travelling to another place to fan the flames of my foodie fire. Food is the gateway to other cultures, how we connect and communicate without words, but through a sensory language.  I have been lucky to travel widely but have only just started to pen my experiences. Here are some and there are more to come, I promise!

Roma…La Dolce Vita

WHERE TO EAT IN ROME When in Italy it is so easy to slip into la dolce vita…particularly when you are immersed in such beautiful, historic centres and surrounded by such good food. Italian life is completely foodcentric, from the morning coffee to the sit down bowl of pasta for lunch, or the slice of [...]

So Sydney…

Sydney is just built for a long weekend getaway, especially when the weather is fine and you are staying in the heart of things…The Rocks.

Romantic, picturesque and brimming with good food at every turn, San Sebastian is a place any foodie must visit at least one in their lifetime. Built round the natural curve of La Concha bay, the city looks to the sea for its calming vista as the locals take their evening paseo, and also for the [...]

We settled into our vintage apartment in the latino Mission District, the place to go for all things Mexican and Cuban.  La Taqueria is worth the queues for authentic Mexican tacos, enchiladas, guacamole and quesadillas to die for – all prepared fresh on the spot, which is the essence of good Mexican cooking and really [...]

Corazon Mexicana

‘Colour’ and ‘Corazon’ are the two words that describe a few days spent in the heart of Mexico City. Bright colours pop out everywhere in the streets, the food and the fashion; and the heart of the people pulses in their welcoming nature and how it is expressed in their hospitality, music and, of course, [...]

When a city celebrates art, design and architecture as the centre of its culture, you can expect that this too extends to the food. And it does, in the innovative streak you find in Barcelona’s vibrant restaurant scene. But, just like the barrios that Barcelona is made up of, each with its own personality, you [...]
