Hi, I’m Bianca! I’m thrilled to share my recipes and experiences of connecting through food and the shared moments we spend together. This year I set the intention to trust, and in that spirit to share more honestly with others. So here’s a collection that shares my passions: Multicultural food that’s healthy and delicious. There is no right or wrong way to eat but there are a few tips and tricks anyone can learn to feed your body what’s right for YOU, and make your meals a little tastier too.
There are two rules for maintaining a healthy diet: First, you need to make lifestyle changes and commit to building a healthy relationship with your food and body—no quick fixes. Second, the only ingredient NOT allowed in the kitchen is BOREDOM. In this collection, I introduce lots of variety as I encourage people to step out of their comfort zones and try something new. I also emphasize the relationship between food and mental health—something we're only just beginning to understand.
At a time when travel feels like a faraway promise, these culinary journeys and recipes will inspire your kitchen. Savor different flavors and learn about ingredients from around the world – from collecting seaweed in the Lofoten Islands to devouring mahi-mahi in the tiny Caribbean island of Nevis, hear the stories behind the dishes and pick up a few recipes to try at home.
“Foodie" is the label that seems to stick like an al dente noodle on a wall for people who love food! And those folks who have been lumped in the foodie category at one time or another have mixed feelings on the word and different interpretations as to what it implies.
