#FBbloggerseries: @CeciliaFabert


Welcome to the Food & Baker food blogger series, which every blogger, vlogger, tweeter is welcome because what human being doesn't like food(!?) This is a just a simple, quick and fun series of food related questions to just to get to know each other and meet new bloggers!

We are super grateful to everyone who are involved! Let's get started!

INTRODUCTION

Hi! My name is Cecilia, I’m 29 years old, and I live in Berkshire no very far from London. I’m a self-help, happiness, and food blogger all wrapped in one!

WHY DID YOU START BLOGGING?

I started blogging because I have been figuring out a whole lot of things these past few months regarding how to look and feel great without giving anything up (and I do mean anything), and definitely without compromising on either mental or physical wellbeing. The thing is, when you have an idea no one seems to have seriously explored before, it must mean that it’s either a stroke of genius or the silliest idea anyone’s had in a while – that’s how I feel at least! So I’ve decided to put it all in practice on myself, all my delicious, practical, happy theories, to see if it really does work!! Hopefully fellow foodies and bloggers will join me and share in my entertaining cooking adventures.

THREE RANDOM FACTS

1. I’ve drowned 3 times, and nearly died on 7 different occasions! So if I always seem overexcited and bouncy, it’s probably because I feel like I’m on my last life now! (EXCLAMATION MARKS EVERYWHERE!)
2. Speaking of life, my family is French, and I spent the first half of my life in France. I know it’s a cliché, but I did actually grow up in my mum’s kitchen. I made my first dressing before I even went to school, and to this day no matter where I am in the world, all is well if I can get my hands on a jar of Dijon Mustard - so expect many dressings and sauce recipes on my blog!
3. I have a bit of a Japanese food obsession, and I have been learning Japanese to get my hands on authentic recipes and techniques from the land of the rising sun.

ARE YOU ALLERGIC TO ANYTHING?


I’m allergic to wheat and physalis, an unusual exotic fruit. My face swells like an overgrown potato if I have wheat, and physalis is a trip to the hospital. I have discovered (accidentally, I admit) that Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate and certain fancy brands of gin contain physalis. I stopped drinking Starbuck’s hot chocolate. It didn’t stop me from trying new gin though!

ARE YOU MORE OF A SAVOURY OR SWEET KIND OF PERSON?

Give me all the sugar. Wait. What you think you heard was, give me a lot of sugar – but what I mean is, bring me ALL the sugar you have.

DO YOU HAVE ANY WEIRD FOOD/EATING HABITS?

My index finger is quirky and cannot flex for very long, so I have developed a strange chopstick technique which draws me looks in Asian restaurants. I’m just ahead of the curve really…

IF YOU COULD TRAVEL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD PURELY FOR ITS FOOD, WHERE WOULD YOU GO?

You’re right if you guessed Japan! Whilst most other cuisines around the world use methods which are either similar or inspired from French cooking, Japan has developed so isolated for so long, and with such a variety of native ingredients, that it has created some of the most intricate kitchen techniques to reveal the most subtle of flavours, allowing food to be enjoyed in its purest form.

SIMPLY SOMETHING YOU'RE PROUD OF

I love this picture I took of some duck I cooked on a Monday night.  It’s a simple duck breast, rendered in a frying pan, served with salt and (drum roll) my first ever harvest of micro-herbs. I have a post in the making about growing your own unusual flavours. These were red radish seeds, and they tasted so wonderfully peppery and crisp, it was a heavenly contrast with the meat. I was so proud of myself because if I’ve inherited my mum’s talents in the kitchen, I don’t normally have her skills in the garden. The picture came out so well too but doesn’t fit with my theme, so I’m grateful to have a chance to show off share it with the world.


WHATS YOUR FAVOURITE POST OF OURS?

The breakfast! No hesitation there!! My gosh that avocado is on my to-do-list (as soon as I can find a few ripe avocados and hide them long enough from my dearest husband Mr J) But seriously, I think all of your posts are really sweet, and Mr J gets an extra cuddle thanks to your blog because of all the good vibes shining in everything you do. And I mean, Date Nights!
