Ethno, my blog, follows my travels around the world and the food I encounter wherever I go. I love finding national specialties or local traditions and I really like trying to replicate these things back home in the UK (with very mixed results).
The main area I focus on is the Balkans, Turkey, the Caucasus and the Middle East but the blog is always evolving so this may well change.
I got to a point in my life where I felt like I was getting stuck in a rut and work was dominating all my time and energy. That’s when I decided to follow my interests and not neglect them anymore.
I’m never happier than when I’m exploring new places, eating national/regional/local food specialties and speaking foreign languages. Rather than keep this to myself I decided to start sharing my adventures with other people and I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the amount of interest I have received. You wouldn’t believe how many people read my post about Azerbaijani vegetarian food !!
