My name is Susan Holland. I am Australian, but have lived for over 20 years in Europe, that is England, France and Ireland. With my husband Ian Parr, we were owners and operators of Customs House, Seafood Restaurant, in Baltimore, West Cork, for over 11 years. In 2005 we sold our restaurant and are now living in the Charente Maritime in South West France.
This blog is a diary of my continual discoveries in Food, Travel and Art.
Before taking up cooking as a profession, my first studies were in Fine Arts,which have continued to be influential in my ideas of the aesthetics and cultural roots of food. Art and travelling complement these ideas.
This blog will be about a city, a place, an exhibition,a building, restaurants and always a recipe or two.
