I am a recent retiree from professional sport in NZ and I have now taken the challenge of starting life in the “real world” as I call it. I have a passion for travel, culture and language and with this I am on a journey that is both culinary and cultural. Along the way I want to discover the most authentic dishes from the places where I travel and bring those recipes to my table in NZ.
I have chosen to plant my kiwi/Irish roots here in Vancouver, Canada as I pursue my love for sport, cooking and my passion to one day work as a sport psychologist. So the purpose of this blog, aside from connecting family and friends to my venture, is to help me in my pursuit to discover Genevieve the cultural culinary genius, Genevieve the intrepid traveller, Genevieve the social athlete and Genevieve the Canadian local. !viva Genevieve! ¡viva la vida!
