Hi! Welcome to my blog! I'm Aldy and I live here in New Zealand with my daughter and husband but I'm originally from Argentina. I grew up in a family that loves to cook from scratch. And so in 2009, I decided to start this blog with the intention of inspiring others about home cooking. 

After a while, I found the need to add more wholesome, nourishing ingredients into my meals and with that the need to know more about nutrition as well. From there I couldn't let go of this whole culinary-creative process of preparing, cooking, styling and photographing!

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy your stay here!

Food Philosophy...

My personal philosophy on food is not about following any diet but finding a balance between cooking and eating instead.

More about me...

I'm a trained cook and decided to become a Certified Food Health Coach a few years ago after challenges with my health. I love food styling and photographing "pretty much" everything we cook and eat at home. Some of my work has been published on The Huffington Post and also featured here.

Personal side...

I’m an Argentinian that wasn’t born in Argentina, I speak Spanish and I’m married to a wonderful man that supports me in everything I do. 

During my second year at the University of Visual Arts, I decided to follow my heart and do what I always wanted to do; travel. And since then I lived and visited a few places around the world, I found my passion for cooking, met a lot of amazing people and got married. Shortly after getting married we moved to New Zealand and during the summer of 2013 welcomed our daughter Lia into our lives. The most beautiful moment we had ever lived.
