The Gourmand Traveller

May 2013 

A Gourmand is a connoisseur of good food. Someone who takes pleasure in exploring different combinations of ingredients and flavours. He is passionate about food, wine and everything that surrounds it. He enjoys going out and discovering new food heavens, whether a trendy restaurant, a local market or a new recipe. He will always be surrounded by the best company. 

I am Teresa la Maltesa, born in Malta 25 years ago, of English & Spanish nationality.  A law graduate, a Gourmand and a Traveller.

The Gourmand Traveller was born in Italy as a way of documenting life’s adventures through food and travel. Life has since taken many different turns, the blog remained open  but with prolonged periods of silence. It comes back today under complete different circumstances,  yet hoping to preserve and further develop its unique essence.
