First Post

This is my first post, in my first blog, so i’m taking it easy 😉

 

I finally made the step of creating my own blog, a culinary one, at the advice of many friends of mine.

The language of choice was eventually English, although it is not my native  tongue, but I can reach a wider reader basis. (I hope so at least :P)

I will post articles about my recipes, but also any other stuff I consider to be related with cooking an food.

 

So enjoy! or Bon apetit! 😉
