A little about myself: I was born in Turkey and I am half French and half Turkish. Gastronomy was all around me during my upbringing. My dad is a consultant in gastronomy and my mom and her family in France have a soft spot for fine food. Even though I never pursued a gastronomy career, I kept it close to my heart and sought after great cuisine wherever I went and traveled. I moved to Canada for university where I would live for 11 years. During that time, I met my ex-wife, a wonderful girl of Chinese origin that made me discover the very wide and incredible Asian cuisine. One day, I decided to quit my engineering job in Vancouver and travel New Zealand in a van. Two things were essential for my van during my purchase: comfortable bed and a great, fully stocked kitchen. I started a travel food blog after I made my first bread in my van and people started asking me all over the place how I did it in such a small space without and oven. It dawned on me that I had been eating pretty well already and that I was learning heaps from other travellers about cooking in a van. I fact both bread recipes I learned were from fellow travellers. Funny story: I learned how to make the flat bread because I locked myself out of my van at night close to where Rohan was in LOTR and I asked for the help of the van next door. They were cooking the flat bread at the time :) I started my blog to empower fellow travellers to cook more fancy or to just give people ideas about what to cook with they don't feel inspired. It makes me so happy when I receive messages from followers telling me how good some of the recipes were when they tried them. ???

This feta orzo salad is great for prepping in advance. Ideal for taking on picnics or trips to the beach. The feta and orzo work really well together and the pepper, onion and cucumber give it a lovely crunch and some colour.

Feta Orzo Salad

Just an amazing summer cold dish, full of fresh/raw ingredients prepared in absolutely no time. The main ingredient is orzo, which is basically pasta in the shape of rice, which pairs perfectly with the vinaigrette & fresh veggies.
