“The joys of the table belong equally to all ages, conditions, countries and times; they mix with all other pleasures, and remain the last to console us for their loss.”

Jean Anthelme Brillet-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste


Who am I: Romantic Adventurer, Dancer, and Musician passionate about Food, Flowers, Flamenco, Travel and Photography

Perhaps it was making fried bananas with Dad when I was a young child, or savoring Mum’s bouillabaisse, that got me hooked on food. The more we traveled, the more my taste buds became bent on new, exotic and exciting flavors: from Turkish mezze, to Vietnamese noodle soup, to Argentinian steak where the animal is grilled whole on a spit in an open fire, or a plain and simple pain au chocolat.

Time and time again friends and family have asked for my recipes, the only caveat being, I did not have recipes, since these were my own creations. So here it is, my new blog. My creativity in the kitchen is at the forefront. I love to play, create and experiment with food. I am familiar with vegan, vegetarian, and world cuisine. My philosophy is to utilize the freshest ingredients, organic if possible, and most importantly, to use what Mother Nature gave us.

Most of my recipes are simple, with few ingredients, but with a punch; and some are more sophisticated. I will try to share some of my favorite kitchen tips and techniques as we move along. Some entries will focus on food and flowers and others of course on food and flamenco, or any variant thereof depending on my mood.

For my vegan friends, all recipes start out vegan and can be adjusted to suit your needs.

Unless otherwise stated, all recipes are created by myself. Typically, all recipes with flamenco tidbits are mine and are very dear to my heart, because this blog is dedicated to you, my dear friends.

For questions, you may contact me at: foodflowersandflamenco@yahoo.com, or simply reply to one of my posts.

¡Olé y Olé!
