Growing up in a family of six kids meant a lot of hungry mouths to feed. My mom’s delicious cooking really whetted my appetite to create meals as yummy as hers (my dad had a few tricks up his sleeve too), but it wasn’t until I was living on my own that I began to cook. Like so many other bloggers, I’m a self-taught cook and recipe developer. Originally from Montreal followed by many years in Toronto, Canada, I now live and blog in Brisbane, Australia, where I live with my boyfriend J, and our two cats. I study medicine by day and eat everything I can by night.
Find Me: I love meeting other foodies, so if you live in Brisbane or are passing through, let me know!

Restaurant Reviews: I only review restaurants where I had a positive experience. I’m not in the business of bashing someone else’s hard work or livelihood so I have chosen not to post negative reviews. This does not mean my reviews aren’t truthful; on the contrary I write honestly about the experience I’ve had. I simply choose to write about positive ones.
