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.

Today’s recipe might just be my favorite one from The Breakfast Book project so far! I loved the pancakes because of their “bowl” or “flower” shape which could be perfectly filled with a fruit salad and because of their extremely light texture which lets you pair them, if you prefer, with your favorite jams, all […]

I came across “bannocks” while browsing the “Quick Breads” chapter of The Breakfast Book by Marion Cunningham. I had never heard of them before and, of course, that was all I needed to pick them from this chapter for our Cook the Book project. Turns out, bannocks are primarily of Scottish origin and are quite […]
