Nigel on Food!
A bit about myself for those of you who do not know me, I was born in Canada raised in the UK but now live in Berlin, Germany. I have always enjoyed life to almost the full. Enjoyed many adventures over the years travelling and meeting people. I am married with two young sons and a daughter. I work from home designing websites with my buddy in Toronto, Canada and I’m also a sort of house father, cooking the meals, doing the laundry etc, but apart from less funds I do love being in this situation, no more office politics or bullshit to deal with! I love to cook, eat and drink. I love travelling, reading, photography, some sports, the outdoors, gardening, especially growing my own veggies. I love my family and have great pleasure in teaching my young sons things, when they listen!
Many years ago I started writing reviews on travel, places, where to go, what to do, what to watch out for, local customs etc for a couple of websites, unfortunately unpaid, but I really enjoyed the writing, so I thought it time to get a bit more serious about it and share some of my passions with you.
I’m a bit of a foodie. I love cooking, no matter what, I also love pairing things, such as what veggies go better with what dish, what seasoning goes well with what meat and for those that know me, I am passionate about making sure my friends and family have good, tasty, but maybe not always healthy food. Our grill and dinner parties are always welcomed and I’m always up for a theme, and when I mean theme, I go for it! I have a collection of olive oils from different countries for example, as in my view, you shouldn’t be making Spanish tapas using Italian olive oil! You don’t drink Chianti with with your Boeuf Bourguignon, and so on. But that is how I am and it does annoy my wife at times!
This site is to share with you some of that as FB has the rest. I hope you like my blog, when I get it going, I also hope I can share some of my food and drink tips with you and occasionally make you laugh and share some of my life through a lens and travel experiences.
Please keep coming back as I will be working on this ongoing!
