La Boheme: c'est moi.

(La Boheme: it's me.)

This is just a short intro of who I am. If you’d like to learn more about me, please visit my personal blog on which I talk about philosophy, life, and, of course, myself.

I first claimed I could cook at age 19, just when I started doing regular strength. Of course, at that time, my idea of cooking was limited to knowing how to make a good lettuce salad and how to grill chicken. I was probably one of the few people on earth who didn’t mind eating the same meal over and over and over again. Things changed about two years later when I moved to the U.S. and discovered in cooking a way of preserving my culture. Preparing traditional dishes for dinner parties with friends or for the holidays was how I expressed part of myself as an individual. Without noticing, I slowly picked up more and more recipes and even began to (successfully) improvise with my own ones.

Nowadays, I continue my “studies” in the domain of cooking, always looking to combine healthy with tasty, while living what I describe as a modern bohemian lifestyle. And of course, I hope to share with you what I enjoy sharing so much with my friends.

Welcome to my BohemianKitchen.

PS: On the picture, I am at a friend's house, holding a delicious French Tarte Tatin, seconds before turning it upside down.

(Though, sometimes, waking up effortlessly around 4:30-5am can be a curse too.) Online shopping. Being a geek. Particularly useful when your RAM module fails on a […]

Dear all! Happy #LoveThePie day 😉 I have so many exciting news, I don’t know where to start. I guess we’ll try the chronological order? A couple of days after I came back from France, I received a gorgeous “Flirty Apron” from the wonderful food blogger over at FreeSpiritEater, as a giveaway prize I won. […]

I can’t believe it’s been over a week since the hubby and I came back from France. We went there with lots of actual work to do, but also to see our families. The trip was short – seven days, 2.5 of which fully spent travelling. (The fact that his family is in the North […]
