That was a life-changing encounter as she became obsessed with the processes involved in cooking meals and getting the best out of ingredients. Patricia threw herself into researching about food. She started with the ones she was already used to, but as time passed, she expanded her horizon to options available all around the world. In 2010, she started a food blog, documenting her experiences with the food culture in places she had been too. Later, she started researching and writing recipes. Much later, she started creating hers. Now, when she is not staring inquisitively in front of her computer, or the kitchen, or walking her dog, Joe, she is someplace in the world, sampling something new. With this cookbook, Patricia draws from her experience as a traveler with lots of stories to tell about the mesmerizing feeling good food is packed with.
