In the past years, I’ve thought a lot about food; I know we all have. The modern times are not easy times: we have to be mindful of stress, GMOs, pesticides, chemicals, studies, gluten, dairy, eggs, meat, everything has become a threat to our wellbeing and our health. Processed foods have taken over the world and we have forgotten how to live simple, easy going lives. But it doesn’t have to be like that, not for you, not for me, not for anybody.
I’m on a journey to find the simple things and foods that make us happy and keep us safe. I’ve given up meat about 20 years ago, I know nothing of margarine and I’m using my hands to make my own sourdough bread and pasta. I no longer believe in studies and researchers or miracle diets but I do believe in cooking with fresh ingredients, from scratch, I believe in local whole foods, moderation and balance. I believe in honest plates, in honest food.
I live in Brussels, I am married to a wonderful man and I am mother to an active, curious and beautiful soul. I work full-time and have little time for my two passions, cooking and photography, but I don’t want to give any of that up. That’s one of the reasons why I post so rarely and I am so bad at responding to comments. Forgive me. I hope you will enjoy this space and I thank you for being here.
