Hi, my name is Nadia and I am a Mama In Love with Food. I am also a chemist, cook and wine/tea enthusiast living in Montreal.  I celebrate & cherish the art (and science) of cooking. After working in the environmental industry I dabbled in two (informal) restaurant kitchens, this took me to an awesome journey in the tea industry. I wanted to share some of the things I’ve learned along the way.
My longstanding love affair with food started a long time ago when I was a kid, staring longingly at my mom while she made magic happen in the kitchen. I was born and raised in Mexico by a French/Chilean mother whose cooking was greatly influenced by her nonna. At a young age I marveled at the ability and the process by which ingredients come together and transform into something utterly delicious.

At kitchenani you’ll find recipes {expanding from traditional family recipes – Bacalao a la Vizcaina – to guilty pleasures – Lavender Macaroons, Mousse de foie}, restaurant reviews, and information about food & wine that will hopefully inspire you to cook! I love learning something new everyday, whether it is discovering a new place or ingredient, and sharing that info!

Hope you enjoy!


I am eternally thankful to my sister and husband for their endless appetite, patience and support.  Toni, for her unconditional love, her superb cooking and creativity in the kitchen! My father for his endless love and support.  To my friends and family whom I love… I am blessed to be a part of your life!
