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.

When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. We all know this. But what if, instead of your canned pumpkin, you find a can of evaporated milk in your bag? Then what do you do? That’s the question I asked myself yesterday. See, yesterday afternoon, I went to the store to grab a few things, […]

A few days ago, I felt the need to bake something sweet. Not too sweet. But sweet nonetheless. I didn’t want cookies, brownies, muffins… All that was left was cake. But not any type of cake. I wanted one in whose simplicity I could find beauty. And so it happened that I came across Nita […]
