Welcome to Cravings in Amsterdam!
My name is Paola. I am a freelance recipe developer, food/lifestyle photographer, food stylist and content creator.
I am from Lima, Peru and currently live in Amsterdam with my husband and 2 cats (Mandu & Nip). I have moved around a bit since my childhood. I’ve lived in the U.S., France, Venezuela, and love brought me to the Netherlands.
As long as I can remember my life has revolved around food. I love recipes that evoke memories. From helping my mom cook, watching cooking shows, to finally embarking on a mini culinary adventure on my own. Right after I finished hospitality management, I moved to Lyon for four months to take a cooking course at L’Institut Paul Bocuse. Those months were a feast for my taste buds.
This blog started as a way to share my cravings. My husband always jokes that I might be pregnant because I’m always craving something very specific. If that were the case, it has been a 30 year long pregnancy.
The recipes I share are easy to make, some very healthy and some more indulgent. For me it’s about balance and what’s life without some cake?
