Gourmanda – an amalgamation of Gourmand and Amanda.
Melbournian feminist food fanatic. Fan of organisation and order, planning and purpose. Tinkers with words for a living. Married to K, cat mama to Mr Darcy, and soon-to-be High Expectations Asian Tiger Mother.
As of late 2017, Gourmanda is less of a chronicle of my food adventures, and more of a chronicle of life. Such is the adulting life – we’re paying a mortgage, expecting to raise a child, eating out less, cooking at home more and devising bulk meals on a budget.
Before all that though, we did have some adventures – check out posts from our eight-month European honeymoon linked below!
