“After awhile, I learned that I was just as likely to find bliss on a folding table in a dicey parking lot as I was in a Michelin-starred restaurant.” Jonathan Gold
-I really am five feet tall.
-I love food and everything related to it.
-I live in the westside of LA. Yes just a few miles west of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills. I love it here because the weather is unbeatable. And no, I really don’t deal with traffic on a daily basis.
-My first time on a plane was June 2002, I taught conversational english in Dongguan China. This trip instilled my love for traveling, whether I travel for work or for leisure.
-I love taking photos…my first camera was a Kodak Cameo at 11. I’m still learning how to use my dSLR
-My previous jobs have allowed me to travel (I used to travel up to 50% of the time). Now I just travel for fun with my loved ones 🙂
-Between May 2007 to August 2011: I’ve spent 13 weeks in Mexico in, 4 weeks in Brazil, 2 weeks in Argentina, 1 week in Peru, a couple of days in Costa Rica, and a day in Uruguay. For a non-native Spanish/Portuguese speaker, I know Latin America quite well.
Favorite comfort food: When I don’t see my parents it’s peas with rice. If I see my parents, then anything they make makes me feel warm and full of love!
Favorite indulgent snack: Macarons, creme brule, and tiramisu.

I want a place to document my food experiences, whether it’s cooking, eating at a local restaurant, or eating overseas. I also want to document some of my travel adventures.
