Welcome! Thank you for visiting, we are excited to start our journey together. From here on out we will be traveling and learning great recipes from all over the world!
A little about us…
My name is Michael and my girlfriend’s name is Rain. Both originally from Maine, moved to New Hampshire for college where I studied Exercise and Sport Science at Colby-Sawyer College, and Rain studying Pre-Vet. Along our journey through college we discovered that we were interested in more than just what we were studying. The whole world seemed to attract our attention. We took a trip together to see what this world was offering us. Along the way we made some friends and shared our passions with each other. Rain has always been quite the chef, and allowing her to experience the food culture first hand in other countries made our kitchen more exotic. She uses her own techniques and flavorful mind to blend foreign food with U.S. food and wants to share those recipes with you! Today, more and more people are traveling, but some are still new. The world is constantly changing and pushing us to survive, and while that may seem easy for some, it is difficult for others. We aim to provide our ever growing knowledge and experience to help us all to reach tomorrow!
Throughout our journey together, we will provide two basic targets, food (from my girlfriend’s crafty heart), and traveling (from the places that we have explored together).
Food – Rain has been spoiling me for the past 6 years. I never really cared for cooking, or the culinary lifestyle until she came along. And yes she had to force me in the beginning. It wasn’t that I ate unhealthy, I just wasn’t exploring all my options. Then she showed me taste buds that I didn’t know I had… From simple meals, and understanding the cooking tricks, to complex meals with extravagant flavors, to exotic meals from other countries, I began to understand why she had such a strong passion for food.
Travel – Traveling does not always mean shopping at the flower markets of France, or hopping on a train to explore the country side of Italy. It could very well be taking a twenty-minute car ride to a place out town that you wouldn’t think to explore. As an avid traveler myself, I like to explore the local regions just as much as exotic ones. Traveling isn’t just sightseeing either, it’s learning to connect with new and different people, sometimes other cultures too. When I traveled abroad I was exposed to new cultures that I had never had exposure to. From that, I learned how close I actually live to communities of different cultures. It took me going all the way to Venice, Italy to learn that there was a Russian community about 45 minutes away from me… But you learn something new everyday.
