Welcome to my blog about food and travel, writing from my desk overlooking my beloved Aarhus!

Somehow you have found your way over to my blog and chances are you love food in all its diverse glory just as much as I do. But who am I, and why am I writing this blog?

I am an international Dane, for now calling Aarhus home, living with my boyfriend and our cat, “Princess” (she can be a bit of a princess too). I returned to Denmark after a lifetime of travelling around the world to begin my studies at Aarhus School of Business (and Social Sciences as it is called now) and find my roots again.

With all the globetrotting, it wasn’t hard finding the most exotic and authentic cuisines of the countries we were visiting, and my parents always insisted on trying something new and different – and always very local! It has now given me a strong appreciation for food culture, where our food comes from, and making dishes using traditional and sometimes time-consuming methods.

I finished an MA in Corporate Communication from ASBSS a few years ago. Now I have decided that it is about time to start that blog I’ve always thought of starting and write about my passion – namely anything and everything about food and travel.

So much has happened in Aarhus since first moving here – restaurants, cafés and bars have opened (and closed), food festivals and events have been launched, takeaways have flourished and their numbers seem to be growing exponentially. For the first time ever, restaurants in Aarhus were awarded Michelin and Bib Gourmand ratings in 2015 – an exhilirating development for Aarhus’ food scene. The selection of cuisines and gourmet available, also at affordable prices, have multiplied in the past few years – and I’m definately loving it!

My Mission

My aim is to document in a fun and interactive way my culinary development as I explore Aarhus and the other places I visit, as well as the places I already visited and have formed the person I am today.

I want to share my experiences and the knowledge that I have so far gained. Through my blog, Instagram and Pinterest accounts I hope to show you a little bit of my world, and perhaps inspire you as well!
