Yeah, I am so exited you are here! Welcome to Culinessa.com

WHY Culinessa.com?

I am not a size zero,  nor a food guru
But just like you: I love good food!
Oh wait, No!
I am obsessed with eating good food
So why not share that culinary passion with you <3

In case you didn’t notice, I am extremely passionate about food, making food and better yet enjoying good food. After working for the big old G, it was time to spread my wings and be more creative. This blog gives me that and a lot more. In this blogpost I share with you a little bit more as to why I started this blog. Still want to know more? Check out my Welcome 2 Culinessa post.

To me food needs to get as close as I can get it to be authentic. That means that the dish tastes like it would when having it in the country of origin. To me authentic means I got it from a native or someone who is an expert at this cuisine or because its been in my family like that for ages. Not to worry, I will let you know in a blogpost weather its authentic or not.

I started writing this blog in English, but now I offer my content in Dutch. Old articles and recipes stay in English for now. Bear with me, I am only human.

Don’t forget that all content is produced (styled and photographed) by me unless stated differently. I put a lot of love and passion in to creating qualitative content. If you want to use recipes or pictures, please contact me and don’t use anything without my permission. We will sort it out together. Oh and please do not post original recipes elsewhere, Google doesn’t like duplicate content.

If you have an idea, a comment or a tip to improve this site, please don’t hesitate to contact me! I will try to answer you asap. 

You can also follow me on Instagram [@culinessa] for some everyday culinary inspiration or like my FB page to stay up to date on whats happening here.
