It goes without saying that I love food. 🙂
As a young girl I would do my homework in my mother’s kitchen (trust me she wasn’t that happy as I took up a lot of space); it was just such a comforting, warm, cozy place…where little miracles happened. 🙂
No wonder I ended up working in food industry before migrating to luxury products.
Having worked during my internships in kitchen or service and having been an international event manager I can say that all of humanity is there, both good and bad. Lots of stress, lots of shouting, lots of crying… on my part… definitely not what food should be about!
From the moment that our distant ancestors first squatted about a cave fire together, food became something more: a shared experience; a place to swap tastes, stories and laughter; somewhere where you can experience the joy of the new and comfort of the familiar. Food defines so much of our culture. So much of us, and yet so much of modernity is processed and fast…
Just in case you are interested, I grew up in Switzerland, being half Swiss German half French. I met my lovely hubby, Mr B, on a cruise in South America (the average age was 70+…a wonder we met!), I gave up my safe haven in Switzerland to live in big London (yes I know…not that bad at all) 🙂. Oh and do I looove Looondooon!!! It is so energising and inspiring! A foodie’s paradise! And yes…Mr. B has put on a little bit of weight since we’ve lived together. 🙂
