Hi my name is Hali! (pronounced “hel-ee,” like “hali-copter.”)
I live in San Francisco but I’m often on the road, whether for work or personal exploring! I’ve visited over 20 countries, including many months living in China, an archaeology dig in Mauritius, and a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago in Spain. I love bringing all the creative flavors and foods I encounter abroad back to my own kitchen and recipes.
I started blogging in 2018 because I felt like my life had been reduced to just work. Travel four days out of the week for work. Cram in meals around work, without any enjoyment of food. I love traveling and food but somehow those just became ways to spend more time at work, and I felt trapped by my own career ambition. My blog was a way for me to claim back the things I loved – food, travel, and living a creative life. It’s a way of forging an identity beyond a crazy work week ☺️💗
So if you like to see the world and eat good food, then join me on my adventures as I share recipes, travel guides, and new experiences.
