Hi there! I’m April, the head chef/photographer/travel-enthusiast behind Food n’ Focus. I have 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 through my camera’s lens. 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 more than 7 years to today, and you’ll regularly find us spending our time at home in the kitchen cooking together, and then styling and photographing our delicious recipes that I share with all of you! I remind myself every day of how blessed I am to have my 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 creating a beautiful recipe (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 cultures and experience cuisine prepared by street vendors and master chefs alike.
As I enter my eighth year with Food n’ Focus, we are about to set out on our most elaborate adventure yet. On September 1st we say bon voyage and set up shop in the French Riviera where we will begin local coverage of the culture and cuisine of many of Europe’s picturesque villages. 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!
