About Claire Idhammar

Born Italian, here I am much later in USA, after living a long time in France, married to a Swedish fellow. Definitely a citizen of the World. I do not have a dog but would love to have one, a cutie to cuddle, unfortunately we are away too much. So no doggie in the house for now. I really do love music, a long list of favorites from classical to Norah Jones, Annie Lennox, through Pink Floyd, Simon & Garfunkel, Dire Straits and many others.

My husband says that when my day goes sour, I go and cook, like a solution to all problems. True, I firmly believe that cooking is a soothing soul process, the best I know. So here is a collection of recipes, from one side of the Atlantic to the other, coming from long rooted Italian culinary family traditions through the years practicing the amazing French cuisine to the New American food creations! All coming together in this blog story, plenty of food, travels, plenty of life!

  3. Love your sight. I am forwarding it to my dear friend in Athens, Georgia who is a chef. She has a little bistro called Lindsey’s Culinary Experience and your receipes certainly fall under that category.

  4. I’ve only started perusing your blog, but am just blown away. I have a fondness for Italian food especially and can’t wait to explore more.
