About me

I’ve published cookbooks, magazine articles on food and wine, a Rome guide book and, most recently, a book on Dutch wine.

I’m back in my hometown of Rotterdam after having spent years in the U.S., Italy, and Germany. The Netherlands isn’t known for its exhilarating cuisine, but I’m still amazed at the speed with which interesting food businesses pop up around me.

On this blog, you’ll find my personal ramblings on wine and food, and the occasional travelogue. Plus, recipes whenever possible. I discovered through my in-laws that Indians are equally food-crazed as Italians, so there’s another subcontinent of regional cuisines waiting to be explored.
