I am Helmi. I have a passion for cooking, traveling and photography.
Originally from Holland, I now live on the beautiful island Curacao in the Caribbean. When I arrived here 18 years ago, I started working as a lawyer. Soon however, I picked up my pots and pans and started a catering business.
Every dish that I serve is homemade with fresh ingredients. Initially I mainly served Mediterranean dishes, but over the years my palate became more and more induced by the bright Caribbean flavors. Gradually, I started developing my own recipes with a modern Caribbean twist.
Today the Caribbean cuisine is still very traditional. Most recipes are passed on from generation to generation. This is where I would like to make a change. The area has so many flavorful spices, delicious fruits, healthy vegetables and fresh fish, with lots of possibilities.
I am going to explore the Caribbean and develop new and tasty recipes with everything good the region has to offer. This blog is a journal of my tasting tour.
