“Julia taught me what it takes to find your way in the world. It’s not what I thought it was. I thought it was all about - I don’t know, confidence or will or luck. Those are all some good things to have, no question. But there’s something else, something that these things grow out of.
It’s joy." Julie Powell, Julie &Julia.
We met a short time ago, both new to San Francisco and originally from Argentina. We were amazed at our very similar backgrounds and interests.
Coming from Argentina, where food is delicious, but not very diverse, we immediately fell in love with the variety of cuisines we tried here in San Francisco.
Also here we learned how bad processed foods are and how we needed to find a way of making our own delicious, natural, home-made food.
Since both of us are passionate about cooking, he came up with the idea of having fun while experimenting with this new world of flavors, fresh ingredients, food photography, Internet… So here we are, with a video blog!
Julieta first moved from Buenos Aires, Argentina, to New York City, where she lived for two years.
Curious about good food, she attended several cooking classes.
Julieta is a lawyer in Argentina, but since she moved to the US she figured it was a great opportunity to re-think her career and start something new.
So she enrolled in a Photography program, finding Food Photography a fascinating way of expressing her creative side. She does the video editing and photography of this blog and she also has another photography blog De aca y de alla (in Spanish).
Julia came from Buenos Aires to San Francisco in 2008 after a year of painfully romantic and very expensive long distance relationship with her then boyfriend, now husband.
Julia always loved cooking from a very early age, after observing her granny waking up at 6 AM to prepare hand made pasta, or roasting her ultra delicious chicken, amongst other dishes. She pretty much tried all the recipes in the Bible of argentinian cuisine, “Doña Petrona C. de Gandulfo” (very similar to what Julia Child was here in the US).
A few years ago, she attended Pastry School at IAG (Instituto Argentino de Gastronomia), where she had a lot of fun and learned very good techniques.
Julia also writes on her personal blog Jules’ Diary (in Spanish).
We hope you enjoy our video blog!
