I was born and raised in Slovakia (formerly 1/2 of Czechoslovakia), living my life both in the major city of Bratislava and even in the country. Some days were normal with school and work, and weekends were spent gardening and sometimes working my father's bee farm (I hated that). I was never much into cooking until I met Alex, although I did have a love for decoration. He even showed me my own inner talent in plating and hosting, as he would rather I plate the food for photos over him. Still, I support him in his love of food whenever he cooks, and am happy our friend Stephanie is there to help on this site as well.
