Writing my first book was quite a journey.
It was liberating, joyful and healing, but also frustrating and scary at times.
Of course there were bumps in the road,
like when I had planned to publish on December 2nd, and everything
started working against me to get it done, or like when I had planned to write
for a full day and not a single word came out!
I have learned through all this that everything happens at the right
time and I had only to accept that the book would be ready and published when
it had to be. No reason for forcing it, it would not work anyway.
Well, apparently the time was right now! I am so proud to announce
that my first book “Tasting Life Around the World” has been published as an
e-book on Smashwords.com and is available for the whole world to download! It
is an immense feeling to know that people everywhere have access to my book! I
gave a large piece of myself in this book and I can only hope that you will
enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed sharing my stories and emotions with
you. I can only hope that you will feel
and experience the love and joy I am bringing to you through my words.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,
What is "The Taste of Life"?
The Taste of Life is about finding joy in the smallest thing you do. The Taste of Life is feeling the love for this beautiful world flowing through you, making your toes tingle and your head spin. It is the art of finding Heaven on Earth… The Taste of Life is passion, it is freedom, it is about being you and loving every single bit of it.
I taste life when I cook for my family and friends, creating dishes that will make their mouths water, smelling the delicate flavor of fresh herbs from my garden, inventing combinations that are intriguing in their simplicity. I savour the Taste of Life when I see my loved ones sitting at a candlelit, cozy dinner table, enjoying every bite, sharing stories and laughter. Letting my artistic side go wild in combining spices and oils, creating artistic food arrangements that show my love for food, for color, for… life.
I taste life when I travel with my family. We explore new destinations, new food, new cultures and feel the pull of the unknown. We step into the adventure of life with both feet and with all our heart and that is the only way to do it. We open our heart and mind, look through the eyes of a child, with wonder and imagination and feel the love filling every cell in our body. All we need is a curious and open mind to taste that delicious, sweet, tantalizing, super satisfying, joyful Taste of Life.
For those of you who like to read more about me tasting life during my travels and culinary experiences, I invite you to read my book “Tasting Life around the World “. While we are waiting for it to be published you can get a “taste” in my blog. I hope I can inspire you and bring you joy and I look forward to hearing from all of you. Ciao…
