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.

To be honest, I’m not really sure I can call this a “defiance” of the San Fran weather. Because the truth is, I love our cool (or cold, depending on whom you ask) weather. Still, those chicken kebabs are definitely defying the idea that you can’t grill on a windy and foggy day. I had […]

A few of months ago, I was browsing the Whole Foods shelves and noticed quinoa flour. It wasn’t the first time I had heard about quinoa flour, but it was the first time I actually noticed it (despite frequently cooking quinoa). And now that it was right in front of me, I asked myself: why […]
