I’m Krisztina, food blogger, photographer, travel addict. I live in Hungary in a small town near Budapest with my husband, Miki, and my daughter, Tami (7y). I adore the hungarian countryside but my favourite place in the whole country is Budapest. Before we moved to the countryside we lived here in the city center. It’s a fantastic place with amazing memorable sights, yummy restaurants, markets, bars and coffes. When we can we spend some time here, trying new places or only walking through the nice streets or the bank of the Danube.
Besides cooking my other passion is travelling. I am a lucky gilr, because my husband has the same passion and Tami is interested in discover the different countries. When we have the possibbility to travel we immediately dive ourselves into the local life and try to explore it as much as it possibble. We usually wake up early in the morning and go out to to get new experiences or to get a good local breakfast in a local cafe or bar.
I love the sunrise, the empty fishing villages at dawn, the voices of the sea, the asian foods and the tropical climate. I adore the European countries but the asian athmosphere is my favourite. Since at 2013 we were at Vietnam I have been lost in the colours and tastes of the asian culture and cuisine.
So, let’s talk abut where I am here…. and why FOOD & EMOTION?
I consistenly belive that we can get to know the other cultures and each other the best through the cuisine. While we share a recipe or a food and start to talk about a story linked to that we can get closer and closer to each other. Finaly we could recognize that we get to know the culture, the history and the personal life. If we are enough open minded then we can feel the local lifestyle. If I pronounce these two words FOOD and EMOTION, it reflects to the previously mentioned experience.
In this blog I would like to show you either the beauty of the Hungarian lifestyle and cuisine, which is my own or our experience and the cuisine of other countries. I am always looking for new ingredients, love to try amazing foods and read cookbooks.
I’m a maniac cookbook collector, in my libary many foreign and Hungarian items are found. I adore the books about the different countries’ culture, lifestyle and cuisine but I usualy read items which describes cooking techniques.
I prefer the street foods (Asian, yeh 🙂 ) or the bistro cuisine but occasionally I love to try fine dining places as well. I am amazed by the foods and plates in these restaurants and adore the chefs for their professionalism. I believe that every type of cuisine has the place in our lives, whether it is a street food or a creative food in a high end restaurant.
As I love cooking I always try to prepare different dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In our home every morning and night we try to have a family breakfast and dinner, three of us, together talking with each others.
What else shall I share about me? …. Probably one thing…. I really feel happy when I can teach people to cook, can push them to try new spices, ingredients. So please do not hesitate to drop me an email if you try something because my blog inspires you. I would love to hear about you!
Please come with me and let’s discover the beauty of the world cuisine together!
