About Me!

by Anna on June 6, 2008


First I would like to thank you for coming and visiting. It makes me very happy to read your lovely comments and have the chance to visit you back; I have found amazing people through this blog.

My name is Anna, I write and photograph the Chefwanabe site. I’m a Brazilian expatriate living in New york City but was lucky enough to have already lived in Sydney Australia for 3 years (I miss you terribly Ozzys) and in Los Angeles for 2 .

I love to travel and try different country foods. I love to cook; as much as I love to eat, I love to cook things like pizza, pastas and breads made entirely by scratch. And that’s probably because of my Italian ancestors. I’m a cookbook addict I can’t resist them I own more than 850 recipe books ( and this number just keeps growing somehow).

The majority of the recipes here are my original recreations. There are a few family recipes and some adaptations of existing recipes. I’m not a chef or professional cook.But I have studied the subject extensively.  My approach to food is use seasonal, fresh products. You can totally spot me at the  Farmer’s Market  photographing and choosing my next ingredients for my meals. Because I believe the best ingredients make the best food.

Here are some of my paintings. That’s how I relax and help myself  get rid of my  Tantrums.
