Sooo, you like food, eh? We’re going to be good friends then.
Hey guys, my name is Alicia and I live in Ottawa, Ontario .
Let’s make this clear right away,
I’m all about
f o o d.
It might have started when family members began reciting recipes to me before I knew what a spatula even was. Or, perhaps it was when I finally had the chance to actually contribute in the kitchen by being on ‘official mixing duty’. Either way, something woke up inside of me and 24 years later, Little Girl, Big Eats is now my super-hero name.
In all seriousness, I don’t think I’ll ever stop being curious about all things food. As a kid, the Food Network was my all-time favourite program which sounds so cheesy and overdramatic, but literally just ask my mom. I’m fascinated by it all: ingredients, basic but reliable cooking methods, old-school preparations of cuisines, the science of cooking, the simplicity of food-sourcing, you name it. Seeing a concise meal or dish come together after many steps is just magical in my eyes.
The thing I admire the most though, is the way food brings people together from all lifestyles and culture. Food is the foundation of many memories and definitely a universal language of showing you care for someone. From a young age, I saw food in a completely new light, and well, I rolled with it.
I first started this blog in 2013 and boy, was it rough looking. In the past few years though, my appreciation for food, as well as my writing style, has matured greatly, and all I want to do is share that with others. Little Girl, Big Eats is getting a much-need makeover and I can’t wait to show you all what I can bring to the table.
As always, peace and good eats.
