Guess who’s back!

It’s been a looong time since the last post, definitely too long! Last time I wrote I had just started the greatest adventure of my life, I had been in Vienna for a few weeks, I used to share a dorm kitchen with 30+ other students. Today, almost three years later, I have settled down…

Every year I receive an advent calendar from WJT. With chocolate! This year it is from Artisan du Chocolat. It comes in the form of a reindeer, it’s wooden and painted in red. Each chocolate is enveloped in a little drawer marked in white with the number of the day. I am going to write…

Welcome to my blog

I am very excited to write the first post of this blog. On these pages I write about and around food. Food is a very important part of our lives. From my perspective, food is not only something that keeps us alive, but rather a life-enriching-experience. For this reason, I want to share with you…
