gour·met n. a person devoted to refined sensuous enjoyment (especially good food & drink) trav·el·ler n. one who travels or has travelled…to distant places.
This blog was borne out of a love for food and wine, and my constant pursuit of new epicurean adventures through cooking, eating, reading and travel – hence the moniker “gourmet traveller” (not intended to rip-off the Australian food mag of the same name!).
Having previously lived in Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong, I am currently happily settled in West London with my other-half, B. We are both avid cooks – during the week (when not dining out), I’m the designated chef but B will often spend a fair bit of time slaving over the hob most weekends. Our shared appreciation of good eating and drinking began at a young age (as our photos will reveal!) and the food we whip up at home is diverse, reflecting both our multi-cultural backgrounds, and extensive travels abroad.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our culinary escapades in and out of the kitchen. Hopefully you’ve found something to take away with you – be it a recipe you’d like to give a whirl, or a restaurant to add to the “to do” list.
If you have any comments, questions or suggestions, I’d love to hear from you – feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a holler on twitter. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram.
