About Fabulous Food Fan

My name is Alexandra; born and raised in The Netherlands (Europe) and a mother of three. I have a passion for local and seasonal produce, culinary traditions and nutrient-dense foods.

The kitchen is our favourite place at home. Here I prepare hearty soups and stews, fermented foods and drinks, home made artisan-style breads and many many cakes. Fruits and vegetables are the stars in my menus, and I try to limit the use of wheat, and sugar in my recipes.

I have organised three Fabulous Food Festivals (for photo impression click here) and several sustainable food dinners ( where young people (aged 12-18 yrs) prepared local seasonal food for their guests in a professional kitchen.
