Hello! My name is Natalie and I have been working in the restaurant industry for many years. What I have come to realize is that besides a few really spectacular “restaurants”, my favorite places to eat are actually the tiny little family owned spots that are hard to find unless you know someone who knows someone. One of my biggest hobbies is eating at these little spots and trying to find the most authentic meals that inspire my own cooking and flavor developments. I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy writing it!
