Carmen’s Organic Kitchen

Carmen’s Story

Iwas born in Cordoba, Spain. I am the youngest of six siblings. My memory of family and food comes from my early years. I remember when the milkman came to our street, the small green grocer in the corner, where all seasonal fruits and vegetables looked and tasted beautiful, our local butcher and the small fish shop. I loved going grocery shopping with my mum. Food was simple but very important. I have always being interested in food and started cooking from early age, although I wasn’t very successful at the start.

In my early adulthood, I decided to follow my dream to learn to speak English and further my University studies. I then embarked in my first USA adventure.

Two years later, I ended up going to Australia, where I graduated as an MBA and met my husband. Yes, LOVE… isn’t it what moves the world? We met in a blind date believing that we were from the same town. And we are, but from different countries in different continents…
