Ok, so you won’t find epicuriously in the dictionary, but the mash-up is a pretty good description of me…


Devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasure, especially to the enjoyment of good food and good company.


Inquisitive, eager to learn, in an unconventional manner…


I love sharing food. Whether it’s a quiet night in with my husband, a get together with family, or a boisterous gathering of friends, there’s nothing better than sharing life over a meal. I also appreciate food that is cooked well. It doesn’t have to be fancy or expensive, but there is nothing better than a meal prepared with respect and an attitude of excellence.

I’ve been cooking for more than 10 years and the more I learn, the more I want to cook. I’m curious about all things edible, and find so much joy in cooking for people. Through this, I’ve found purpose: to enjoy life, by sharing feasts, with the ones I love. I’ll be sharing the food I make, the places I’ve dined, and whatever other adventures come our way. I hope you enjoy the photos and recipes, and may it inspire you to continue with your own journey in a new light, to appreciate what you have, with the ones you love.

Happy feasting!
