I gather nuggets about Cuisines, Cultures and Cures - in the markets, bazaars, souks, roadside stalls and backyards.
They are woven into virtual safaris on ~ An Inspired Palette ~ Unfolding Your Vitality Blueprint ~ Being Your Own Wellness Guru. A Swiss-army knife of wellness, exploration and expression. The right tool for the right moment.
I explore, taste and write about the secret cuisines and healing traditions, often forgotten.
I champion markets and makers who, do old things in new ways and new things in old ways that delight, heal and transform.
My 27 labors have included degrees in Zoology, Botany, Chemistry, Biochemistry, and Nutrition.
