About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find my way in life making people happy on the way with my food, ranting and blabbing :-)

ABOUT ME

Funny and easy going with a deep willing to learn and to please. That is probably why I am a scientist and a cook (a little bit artist or designer too). I like to meet new people, the adrenaline of the discover is always welcome; that's my drug I might say.
Hard to find words to put in here, if you have any idea let me know! ;-)

PHILOSOPHY

"Never say never" &
"Those who are in love with practice without knowledge are like the sailor who gets into a ship without rudder or compass and who never can be certain whether he is going. Practice must always be founded on sound theory..." Leonardo Da Vinci

Interests

Food, cooking, cultures, science, art, crafts, photography, books

Music, Movies & Books

I LOVE the whole Inspector Montalbano Tv-Series as well as the original Camilleri's books. Such a touching portrait of my Sicily, I get emotional each time I even think at them.
I watch a lot of food series, the more there is to learn the better. Movies, it depends on the mood I am opened to almost anything (though I am not much into the demential kind of humor like Mr. Bean for instance).
Music idem, I love oldies and happy music. Pieces with a hard beat really pierce my heart and get me into the right mood (as fireworks do too).

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Well, it takes a while to get me awestruck but I guess all these moments were linked either to art or food.
The first (and second, and third...) visit to the Louvre did struck a blow to my mind so much so that I keep on returning.
Food wise I had excellent experiences in Les Cocottes restaurant in Paris but I will never remember that buttery smooth piece of pike I had once in London.
But the supreme foodgasmic experience has been the first time I tried Pierre Hermé bonbons aux chocolat: divine!! That guy is a pure genius on flavors!

Teach, Learn, Share

What can I share? My love for food and science with a pinch of creativity; a great combo for inventive cooking and happiness (check my photos or blog for some examples, just google RecipeTaster).
