Growing up in England, I didn’t have a close familiarity with Brazilian culture. It wasn’t until I visited in 2010 that I knew how amazing and vibrant this country was. Ever since I stepped foot in Rio de Janeiro, I’ve never looked back.
I’ve always considered myself a foodie. Even as a child, I was the opposite of picky. In fact, I loved trying new and exotic foods. When I first came to Rio, I thought it was going to be just an all-you-can-eat-meat-feast, but what I found was that there is so much more to Brazilian cuisine. From delicious seafood, lesser-known fruits, and delicious stews on a bed of rice, there is so much to eat and explore. That’s why I dedicated my career to sharing what Brazilian cuisine has to offer. My goal is to make sure every visitor gets a rewarding and full experience. No matter what your tastes or dietary preferences, I am sure that Rio will have something to offer you. My whole life has been dedicated to great food and great times. I even write about food and travel. Ask me for restaurant recommendations in various Latin American cities and I can name some great choices. Eating is the best part of traveling, after all.
Cooking is my passion! I love all things food and being able to make it myself is even more rewarding. I’ve learned to cook all sorts of cuisines. I even bake my own bread and brew my own beer. Cooking is the best way to spend any day with friends and family, especially when you are trying out a new recipe.
Choosing my dream vacation is like choosing my favorite food, impossible! All of my travels are dedicated to discovering new cuisines. I truly get to know a place once I eat their typical foods. But if I had to pick, I’d like to visit Spain, China, Italy, or Mexico.
