Welcome to In Search Of Yummy-ness, a website devoted to exploring, discovering, and sharing good food from at home and abroad.
Over the years, this website has evolved from a simple hobby blog that documented my restaurant meals, to an online publication with stories, interviews, and recipes that celebrate a variety of international cuisines.
I wish I could tell you that I’ve travelled the world, seeking out unique culinary experiences from continent to continent. But my story is way less glamourous.
I was born on the tiny island of Trinidad, and immigrated to Canada with my family as a toddler. Growing up, my mom (who is an excellent cook) would make all kinds of foods at home, so I grew up with an appreciation for a wide range of flavours. I’ve also always lived in multicultural areas and have had friends from different ethnicities.
Between eating at my friends’ homes and restaurants, and learning through cookbooks and TV shows, I’ve been immersed in multicultural cooking without even really thinking about it. It’s always been a part of who I am.
This blog is my way of sharing my love for recipes from all over the world. My recipes might not be “authentic”, but they are tasty, and I hope you will love them as much as I do.
Join me in the journey of discovering good food by subscribing to my weekly newsletter, or following me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. You can also contact me directly – I’d love to hear from you!
