C’est la vie, such is life. As a self proclaimed foodie, I’ve come to really immerse myself in a culture of food. I find myself an avid and active member of what they call the “foodie revolution”. People blame the millennial generation for changing the way we view and consume food. Somehow along the way, us millennials have developed a our fascination of foods through discussion and visual documentation. For me, I embrace this “stigma” given from the older generations.  Food is something that truly engages all our senses and should bring people from all walks of life together. That is the reason why I created this blog. I want to talk about memorable and interesting experiences I’ve had through eating. Hopefully it will inspire you to go out and create your own foodie adventures!

My name is Carmen and I’m currently located in sunny southern California! I started this blog to record in detail all the interesting food destinations I have visited. Though I have most of my food pictures stored in a Dropbox account since 2012, it all started in 2015 when I decided to share these images and create my first food Instagram account- thatgirlwhotakespicsoffood. Since then, that account has evolved to cestlaviefoodie. Follow me on local and global foodie journey.
