Thank you for visiting my blog!! My name is Sonila Zarate and I was born in Albania, a Mediterranean country in South-Eastern Europe. I’m married to a wonderful man who I first met 17 years ago in Miami, Florida and we have two beautiful children, a 7 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. My husband was born in Bolivia and came to live here in Miami at a young age. We relocated to New Zealand for work in 2009, where we got married and we are back in US, raising our family in Miami.
The main reason I want to start a food blog is to teach our kids about our heritage through food. I want to expose them to different dishes from our countries of birth and hopefully get them to appreciate a different culinary experience. In this journey, I will enlist the help of family members on both sides for recipes and cooking tips. I’m very excited to document this experience and hopefully it will be something my kids will enjoy looking back at when they are grown up!
As a family we love tennis, travel and food so occasionally I will try to share additional blog posts besides recipes. If you would like to read more about me, please check out my post about Anthony Bourdain’s shows and their impact on my life.
Thank you for being part of this journey with me!! If you have any recipe suggestions or ideas for improvement, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
