About

Pescetarian Pleasures – what’s it all about? Well, first up, I’m a foodie: I love cooking and there are few things I enjoy more than eating, and sharing a meal with the people I love.

Then there’s travelling! I got the travel bug quite young and have made it a mission in life to see as much of the world as possible. You only live once, right?

I’ve been pescetarian (a vegetarian who eats fish) for 25 years now. Cooking without meat has meant I’ve learnt to get creative with food and I’m always trying to find new and exciting ways to prepare, cook and serve dishes. Although this doesn’t make me an expert, my cooking has come a long way in that time. I cook a wide variety of dishes but usually love dishes where high quality vegetables, fish or seafood are the star. I focus on great tasting food, that is healthy, sustainable and seasonal.

I am lucky enough to live in the wonderful city of Barcelona, and boy is this city great for food-lovers. For would-be chefs, it’s a veritable paradise, with great food markets and fantastic produce all over the city. There’s nothing I love more than picking up some unfamiliar ingredients and experimenting with them at home.

You are going to love some of my recipes because they are fresh, tasty, appetizing and (usually) pretty healthy. I don’t like making overly complicated, fussy dishes, so you should find the recipes easy to follow. If not, please contact me to let me know!

My last kitchen was a total nightmare. It was small, triangular in shape and very dark! At last, finally I have a kitchen which has lots of light and is big enough to actually cook in! This blog gives me an excuse to share some of my homemade creations, as well as some of the exciting dishes discovered on my travels. All recipes and photos are my own, unless otherwise stated.
