Hi there! Julia and Philippe here.

We are all about teamwork in the kitchen. Although we both grew up around great food, we discovered we love cooking together a few years ago while living in New York City and started this blog in 2012 out of our tiny apartments there. Today we live in beautiful San Diego, California and find ourselves cooking more than ever, using local ingredients, having friends over for dinner parties, and just generally enjoying good food.

For us, cooking is about spending time together and trying new things. Neither of us has any dietary restrictions, but we love to make mostly healthy, plant-based recipes using seasonal and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. We cook pretty much anything and everything, always looking to try something different and delicious. When we’re not cooking, we’re typically running around outdoors in any variation of exercise and adventure with our dog Elizabeth.
