Hi, I’m Ribana. I was born and raised in Romania. A beautiful country with a lot of problems. After I’ve met my husband, I went to live in Italy, a wonderful country that went deep into my heart.
I am a nutritionist, pastry chef, recipe developer, food writer, and ultimately a passionate home cook. I curate and develop recipes that are high on nutrition. I develop and test cost effective, nutritious meals using quality ingredients to help people improve their everyday eating experiences.
I love Mediterranean cuisine and I am an advocate of using fresh, hyper local, and seasonal produce. I am dedicated to helping people better understand nutrition and have a healthier relationship with their food. I am on a mission to help spread the real food message to as many people as possible through my blog Popsicle Society. My food philosophy is:
“Eat a little bit of everything.”
Some years back, we left our home, our family, our full-time jobs, we left everything behind and traveled more than 10,000 km away in a city where we did not know anyone, without a job, without a home, only us.
Today, are more than 9 years that we have been living in Singapore.
I love traveling, cooking, and enjoying this beautiful nature. We have a wonderful world.
Life is not always easy, but it gives us the opportunity. It is a continuous experience, a journey with no map and no rules.
We’ve engaged in this never-ending adventure! Let’s enjoy the trip and see where it will take us.
