Hi, I’m Lauren. I’ve recently returned to the U.S. after a long time away, mostly in Bulgaria and Bangladesh, and have been making my home in Foodie Central in the U.S. – Portland, Oregon – since September. I’m a roving cook who likes, and likes to write about, mostly-vegetarian, mostly-unpretentious, and mostly-unfussy food. I’m slowly filling this blog with stories about my life and my kitchen and I hope you’ll like reading it. Leave comments, tell your friends, support root vegetables.
