ABOUT US

CHRISTINE FRANCESCA HALVORSEN

 Founder & Owner

 

IT ALL STARTED WITH A ONE-WAY TICKET AROUND THE WORLD IN 2017. ON THIS JOURNEY I FOUND MYSELF SURROUNDED BY AMAZING PEOPLE, BEAUTIFUL PLACES AND GREAT FOOD. MY FONDEST MEMORIES FROM THIS TRIP WAS THE FOOD. IT WAS HERE I REALIZED HOW MUCH OF AN IMPACT FOOD HAVE IN OUR DAILY LIVES. 

I COME FROM A THAI FAMILY, AND IN OUR CULTURE EATING A MEAL IS ALWAYS SHARED AND USUALLY DONE IN A 'SABAI SABAI' WAY.. IN THAILAND WE HAVE A HUGE FRUIT CULTURE, SOMETIMES WE'LL JUST SIT TOGETHER ON THE FLOOR AND INDULGE IN 10 DIFFERENT KINDS OF FRUIT. WHEN MY MOM SAYS "LET'S GO SHOPPING", WHAT SHE REALLY MEANS IS "LET'S GO TO THE FOOD MARKET". 

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN BALI AND AUSTRALIA I FELL IN LOVE WITH SNACKPLATTER AND SMOOTHIE BOWLS. AND THAT WAS IT. 

ON THE LAST LEG OF MY JOURNEY I CAME ACROSS A NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY CALLED THE MINIMALIST. IN THE DOC THEY'D DONE A TEST TO SHOW WHERE PEOPLE SPENT MOST OF THEIR TIME. THE HEAT SIGNAL SHOWED, TO NO SURPRISE, THE KITCHEN. THE KITCHEN IS THE HUB OF THE HUB, WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS. IT'S WHERE ALL OUR MEALS ARE CREARED TO FUEL OUR BODIES, SOUL AND SHARE ABOUT OUR DAYS. 

 

BEING THE FOODIE THAT I AM, MY MISSION IN LIFE IS TO SHARE MY PASSION FOR FOOD, CONVERSATION AND GRAZING TABLES. LET'S PUT OUR PHONES AWAY AND LET'S TRULY RECONNECT OVER A SNACK.
