I’m Alex and my two biggest passions in life are food and travel.
I started cooking when I was 14 years old and only got more and more passionate about it with my various food and traveling experiences. My Russian background gave me the skills and basis of home cooking appreciation and my proximity to New York City as well as various world travels, have opened a world of wide culinary experiences and inspirations. I love everything savory – the unique mixing of spices and flavors is what truly makes an excellent dish for me; that moment when the world stops for a few seconds as you achieve flavor nirvana.
I also fell in love with climbing volcanoes when I first tried it in Bali and have since embraced that traveling for me is a must, not simply a hobby. I have been to over 30 countries and have many more on my list that I would like to visit. I love sharing my travel and culinary experiences with the world as a form of autobiographical documentary with which I can hopefully inspire and motivate, as well as encourage my generation to explore the beautiful world around them.
