For me, being able to connect and build a community around food has been and is a very important part of my life for me. Living far from home makes me miss Peruvian / latin food and the feeling that this gives me, so cooking makes me relive those moments! I always say that 'Love is made in the kitchen' and it fulfills me to be able to connect with my followers and teach them that they can show love to others, build attraction and even flirt through food!
