The Very Hungry Nomads

I love good food! My favourite thing is to eat a dish that has been cooked with love, definitely the most important ingredient of all.

I’m a self-confessed travelling foodie, my passion for sharing moments with local people and tasting different cuisines has taken me to over 110+ countries, and still counting.

Food connects people and I want to share my knowledge with everyone to show how joining a cultural food experience can be the best souvenir you ever buy.

I grew up on home cooked food in Central Europe (Slovakia), without the opportunity to try any other major world cuisine.

Travelling around the world has allowed me to taste and learn more about food and different cultures and to find a real passion for it!

Food brings people together.  My favourite is street food or home cooked meals based on family recipes.  A travel enthusiast and blogger, I’ve visited over 110+ countries and keen to discover more.
