Michael Nazarovech

My ancestry is Italian and Russian. I have spent many years cooking dishes from both my parents’ heritage. A few of my relatives married into different cultures and through them I learned about Jewish and Irish cuisine.

I joined the army at a young age and during my three year tour of duty in Europe, I visited Germany, Austria, Italy, Spain, Denmark, Holland, England, France, and Ireland. My passion for cooking inspired me to read and study the different culinary techniques these countries have. Many of the things I learned came from the kitchens I visited in Europe.

When I returned to the United States my opinion about food and people changed. I became obsessed with learning about the food and culture of all the different countries I visited. I collected books, attended cooking classes and tried and tested many different recipes.

Due to career relocations and my love of traveling I learned the different regional cooking styles of the United States. I found that our country is so diverse that those simple things like chili can be entirely different between the West Coast, East Coast and the Mid-West.

I know this sounds like a paradox, but to me, food can be so simple and then so complex at the same time. Our site is designed to make cultural food easy for everyone who has the desire to learn ethnic cooking.

Wherever I visit it seems most people have this in common; they all love to celebrate life through eating and sharing with family and friends. I find that even though there are many cultural, political and religious differences, when we sit down at the table to eat most differences seem to be trivial.

I hope this web site opens doors for our visitors and inspires them to explore the foods and cultures of the different countries we plan to visit each month.
