A Beloved Wife with A Culinary Degree

Hi, I’m Isabel. Let me utter a few words to describe myself. I am not into cooking as a professional. Then why did I pursue institutional education in this field? To be honest, I didn’t want to be a typical woman who cooks to eat without putting much sense to the culinary factors. My husband and I’ve been conscious of our food habits (of the taste actually) since the time we tied the knot. Our primary goal has always been to tongue delicious and nutritious recipes. Although I’m not a nutritionist, I do care about those life-saving agents. I got immensely familiar with dishes, especially the ones based on meats and the different tools and ingredients that make what our senses desire the most. Do you want my experience to guide you through any of these? Follow my posts on this website!
