Hi there! I’m April, the head chef/photographer/travel-enthusiast behind Food n’ Focus. I have always had a passion for food and cooking ever since I was a child, but it wasn’t until I traveled to Paris in 2011 that I realized how beautiful food could be and decided that I wanted to start capturing that beauty. I told my then-boyfriend-now-husband that I wanted to start a blog and he rolled his eyes with a bit of doubt and let me run with the idea.
Fast-forward nearly 6 years to today where we regularly spend our time at home in the kitchen together cooking, styling and photographing delicious recipes that I share with all of you! I remind myself every day of how blessed I am to have my small passion grow into something so much larger where my life revolves around cooking delicious meals and taking fun trips to experience sweet and savory cuisine around the globe!
When I’m not in my kitchen making a giant mess (which often includes a glass of wine in my hand), you can find me hopping a plane to travel to destinations around the world. My husband and I love to become immersed in different cities and culture and experience cuisine prepared by street vendors and master chefs. Our favorite city is New York City and on my bucket-list is Australia, Japan and Greece. You can check out more from our travels in the Travel section of the blog.
Food n’ Focus features a mix of recipes ranging from quick and easy meals for weeknights with more elaborate recipes for the weekend and for entertaining. If you’re someone who loves food and travel or just likes to look at pretty pictures of food and travel, then pull up a seat with a glass of wine and stay for a while!
If you have any questions, comments or concerns or just want to chat, drop me a line!
Thanks for visiting!
