I wouldn't be where I am at this point if it wasn't for my husband's tremendous inspiration in my life. If it wasn't for his always positive and encouraging attitude we would have never started this incredible journey. I would still be sharing my culinary creations on Facebook, with only a few friends and family to comment, those same ones that are lucky enough to get to experience our cooking 🙂 .
Other than his, my main inspirations to begin this new exciting adventure have been other amazing Food Bloggers (where I turn for recipes, hints on "how to start", tips on photography) and precious books that I've read over the years (in some cases followed by good movies based on the book), that have tickled my curiosity to experiment in the kitchen.
Here is an evolving list of some of my favourite bloggers and books that I want to share with you.
