LAST UPDATED ON
Way back when I have started “Through Oana’s Lens”, earlier this year, it was all meant to be a blog that was supposed to reflect life seen through my lens.
I am a photographer.
I live and breath through my lens.
We all see things differently and I wanted to showcase what I am truly passionate about: life, colors, shades, moody images and excitement! I was trying maybe to rediscover myself through what I was shooting.
Little did I know that what has started as a challenge, My World Cup series will really change the whole play. I just wanted to push myself during the Soccer World Cup Series to see what I can achieve having really tight deadlines, experiencing and showcasing different culinary styles and a totally new world for me.
So, what was meant to be my life and experiences seen through my lens became more and more about various fresh dishes and cultures all mixed up and highlighted week after week from my kitchen.
I have always been really passionate about food, devouring episodes and series on Food Channel, MasterChef and always buying magazines, just to actually find myself collecting them and never trying more than 1-2 recipes.
This short but intense journey have helped me discover that not only I do adore food – good, fresh and healthy food, but I love the process of cooking, preparation, staging, shooting and presenting recipes.
So, months have gone by and now both me and my site have outgrown the concept that ” Through Oana’s Lens” was meant to be in the first place.
It is time now to embark on the second leg of this journey and rebrand, refocus, change the name of this site to better reflect the ideas, the concept, the content. What it really stands for. It’s core.
Starting with December 1st, I present you – ADORE FOODS!
So what will be ADORE FOODS?
Everything you have all came here for and much, much more.
More information, more content, more focus.
ADORE FOODS will try to connect better with you. So it can better represent what you need.
I am a busy mum, not a chef. Have never been one. So if I can cook a meal- SO CAN YOU.
ADORE FOODS will tell you how long every recipe takes to make. From prep time to serving on a plate.
All coming- again- from a normal person, a normal mum and wife with a normal life. No chefs, no professional cooks in professional kitchens. No pretentious cook shows on fancy TV channels that no one can do. Everything is done in my small, normal, yet appropriate home kitchen.
ADORE FOODS- will tell you exactly how much it will cost you to make a recipe. For a family of three or four. Because I know how important it is to be able to serve your loved ones good, fresh and healthy food, all packed with flavor when you are on a budget.
ADORE FOODS will concentrate on ingredients that are local. That your everyday person can buy from the local grocery shop.
On ADORE FOODS you will find 10$, 20$, 30$ recipes. That will take 20/30/45/60 minutes to make. That will look and taste great. That will keep your family healthy and full of life and energy. That you can have time to prepare, cook and serve.
Because I just showed you I could. So you know you will too.
WELCOME TO ADORE FOODS!
