About Me

A committed omnivore, I am the type of person who will eat anything once– if only for the privilege of critiquing it.

I was raised in Washington D.C, have lived in Philadelphia, London and New York, and have had the pleasure of eating my way all over the world.  I am currently a resident of Dubai where I find that every day is a culinary adventure.  I have yet to meet a raw ingredient I dislike and firmly believe that there is no bad food, only bad preparation.

After a career in non-profit management, I started this blog as an outlet for my sybaritic tendencies.  The essence of such inner conflict is best expressed by E.B. White in the following quote:

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to save the world and a desire to savor the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

    Hey, My name’s Rhea and I’m a high school student studying in Dubai. Your blog looks very intriguing! I was just wondering if you could answer this questionnaire as it’s part of a school project, it would be really helpful if I could get a response from you as soon as possible. Thanks! https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/P9HM3G6
