My Little Expat Kitchen

Greek people revolve their social lives around the kitchen table — regular family dinners (extended family included) are the norm, and the food (simple yet unique) is served in abundance. So, when it comes to food, you can definitely trust someone Greek. Magdalini, a Greek expat in The Hague, has dedicated her blog My Little Expat Kitchen to great culinary expeditions. Maybe you still haven't secured your accommodation in Netherlands or signed your employment contract, but you will satisfy your appetite with Magdalini's flavourful invitations.

An American in Rome

An American in Rome food blogger

When in Rome, do as the Romans do (aka eat fresh food, drink exceptional wine, and look after your style). Natalie shares practical information on how to settle in the Eternal City and takes you into Rome's hidden corners in her blog An American in Rome. More improtantly, you will find answers as to where to treat yourself to a nice meal (or ice cream, wrap, pizza, coffee or dessert) in Rome. Rome is Natalie's favourite city, what about you?


If you are more of a visual eater, which means that you find the ambience more attractive than the tastes, then Hélène's food blog Tartelette is just for you. Hélène, a French expat in the USA, has translated her love for food and photography into a blog that perfectly combines both worlds. The world is full of opportunities, and the kitchen too!
