healthnut and ''Whole Foods'' fan,
passionate seafood and veggie lover, cosmopolitan and world traveler. To me good food is one of great pleasures in life, cultural experience and of course love! Trying local authentic cuisine is a must wherever I go. Although I usually pick healthy stuff - in the end we are what we eat. Food photography is very pleasing to me also.
By the way great website for healthy lifestyle ( recipes, tips and a lot more ): www.lime.com
Here you can look at and even purchase some of my pictures:
Hope you'll enjoy them!
My favorite things to cook
just about anything international ( recently obsessed with lebanese and greek food ),organic,fresh and healthy! Fresh seafood and fish, of course caviar! Lots of fresh herbs and spices, veggies, whole grains, no white bread and butter. I cook everything in olive oil and use sunflower/avocado/sesame/walnut ( love experimenting with different kinds of healthy oils!) oil for vegetable salads. Not into pork/fatty cuts of meat/anything fat. Minimum processed foods;)
no dough please since I'm not interested in baking - me and dough just don't click)))) However once in a while I love gourmet good quality brownies and the like from tiny authentic bakeries, and little chocolates/truffles from chocolaterias - you know, just like in the movie ''Chocolat'' - pure magic! ;) Love flan,turkish delight, gelato, lemon sorbet...anything lemon really) but very rarely make dessert myself - in my opinion not really worth the time involved)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and grandmom are both the best cooks ever so we have lots of cherished family recipes that I'm going to put together in a family cookbook with my photography and design!
My cooking triumphs
every time something I prepared myself tastes good being good for me also is a success!
My cooking tragedies
not really tragedies, just a few cute mistakes;)
