I am a surfer girl. I travel, surf and film locals cooking as authentic as it gets. I have filmed gypsies in a desert in India cooking on camel droppings, village people in Sri Lanka making amazing curries on coconut shells, muslim family cooking rice in banana leaves in a village in Indonesia. I simply witnessed food preparations the most authentic way and filmed and collected not only loads of recipes but interesting information about ingredients from their homeland too.

It was amazing to see in which conditions it is possible to make incredibly mouthwatering delicacies. With no stove, no electricity, no special tools for each step of food preparation like we are used to in the “West”, where we have a special knife for bread, different one for meat, different one for cheese, different one for vegetables. Blender for this, a slicer for that, egg cooker, water kettle, coffee maker… And tens or even hundreds of other tools.

The countries I have traveled, filmed in and surfed recently are India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malay part of Borneo and Morocco.
