About Me
Hi everyone... I am very happy to discovered this. I enjoy so much cooking for others and trying new recipes that others cook for me. I love to have people over for pot lucks (shared cooking dinners) and I really enjoy cooking events. However, I have a small studio and I can comfortably host on a few people at a time. So, I would be pleased to exchange, invite people over for dinner and come to yours as well. I am currently learning German and actively participating in my course, tandems, language exchanges, etc. I would be very happy to practice with you! -------------- I am vegetarian (no meat or fish), but I do eat dairy. My home is also vegetarian, but I am willing to go to homes that are not, as long as I'm not consuming any meat :) -------------- I cook everything from Italian, veggie based dishes, Thai food and many other things! I simply LOVE good food filled with flavor and company (good conversation) to share it with. -------------- I look forward to getting to know you and sharing some food. -------------- me... photography * music * being artsy * my mandolin * my herbs * skiing * rain * traveling * meeting strangers * penguins * teaching * meaningful, non-selfish conversation * being occasionally feisty * hiking * camping * playing tin whistle * gadgets, electronics, computers * stickers * hammocks * sleeping * smiling with people * teaching art * my djembe * spontaneous trips... just get in the car and drive and figure it out later * frisbeeee * good food with no meat * learning languages * second hand shops * my sleeping bag * my plants * my whistle * my banjo * my tent * teaching * fall leaves * sunshine * my new balcony herb garden * snow * rice cakes * movies * books * bubbly water * and of course, my wonderful, beautiful, amazing dog, Timber!
Why I Share Meals
I want to meet people, learn new recipes, share recipes, share stories.

What I Read, Watch, and Listen To
I couldn't begin to list everything. I love movies very very much and I have a LARGE collection. I enjoy many types of music and have a large collection there as well.
A Memory of a Home-Cooked Meal

I can't say enough about the quality of her food, as well as the hosting in general. Jess really likes to cook, and has many great stories to tell. She made me feel very welcome my first time in Germany, and lives in an awesome neighborhood.

I tried numerous meals cooked by Jess In Bratislava and Berlin and I have cooked for her too on many occasions. It was always very tasty, pleasant moments and I can´t wait to continue our tradition of cooking for each other!

Jess is awesome!! I'm seriously glad we got to talk and share a meal. It was short, but really sweet. Her cooking is really good and healthy and she's a pleasure to talk to. I'm really looking forward to hosting her soon. (By the way, her lemongrass tea was incredible).
