There is more than the communion of bodies when bread is broken and wine drunk. –m.f.k. fisher

Food, friends and family are a way to celebrate life. Mixed with shared adventures, a story emerges.

From 1987-2018, I lived with my family in six countries on three continents; Singapore, Cyprus, Taiwan, Germany, France and the USA. During our early years overseas, I discovered the books of M.F.K. Fisher.

Fisher’s stories about people, places, and food [in France and California] were influential in my own writing. It’s an important mingling. We are nourished by good food. We are nurtured by friendship and love with the people in our lives.

Therein lies the thread to my own stories. Set in countries where we have lived or visited, they are connected to family, or friends, or to a place worth remembering. It’s not always about food, but there is always an adventure.

  2. I should have read about egg coffee BEFORE pressing my own, to sit and read your blog I am inspired to try tomorrow! Love that Nico and just envisioning him with his confiture and the smile that he ALWAYS wears, is priceless. So happy that you are writing. It is something you do so well and sharing with those who love you is brilliant. I am headed to the farm en famille and will attempt to create Mimi’s stew tonight!! xx


  3. I’ve only read the first page and already I am hooked, because MFK Fisher is perhaps my favorite author–I’ve read every one of her books–so I know I will love your posts!
