For my wonderful husband, Frank and my two amazing children, Nicholas and Thomas. It is their presence in my life that made for such inspiring travels and cooking for them is a tremendous joy. They were there to always remind me where to find the taste of life when I was struggling with cancer. I thank my son, Nicholas especially, for his wonderful photos and his time and dedication to help me create this e-book en my website.
Thank you to my loving parents, who gave me the taste for traveling and especially my mother who taught me how to cook and gave me the taste for sharing food with family and friends.
Thank you to my wonderful parents-in-law, who helped create some of my most amazing travel experiences. Their open mind and eagerness to discover was always a welcome support. I will always treasure the memories of traveling with my father-in-law, pepe, who passed away in August 2012.
Thank you to all my family and friends, without whom many memories would not exist, without whom my stories would not be the same.
It is the love that binds us that creates the inspiration, that creates the real taste of life.
