A Canadian that, by way of serendipity came to Croatia via the Australian outback 12 years ago. I have lived in small villages in Dalmatia, hiked the highest peaks, hosted and cheffed at 2 Bed and Breakfasts, tour guided many adventurous souls through the islands and cities of Dalmatia, and now live permanently in Dubrovnik where my passion is hosting and designing special piknik and panorama experiences for people who want to really indulge and try local foods, some fusion recipes of mine, and specialties from all regions of Croatia, in the sublime beauty of my handpicked spots.
I am also a witty and engaging story teller about Croatia, the country I adore as my adoptive home.
Famous cooking memories to date in life: Made a fritatta for Fidel Castro for a diplomatics meal in Cuba (he did not show up!), one of my picnics resulted in a local stray dog finding a new home Helsinki!, helped design vegan pancetta for Jeff Bridges - in my former career as a movie food stylist..i have opened a wine bottle with a toothbrush.
