DEAR DIARY...

I want to tell you about my experiences through my memories…

We will go on a journey. The flavours that emerge from my kitchen will captivate your senses and make you travel through to the cultures and adventures that have made me the person I am today: a brave, empowered woman. I am a traveller. I am free. I am proud.

I am Katalina… Bendita Katalina!

THE ENVY OF THE TANGO BOY

I remember when, on my visit to Buenos Aires, I met Hugo.

He was a tango singer who taught me the rhythm of the most passionate dance in the world and the reason of his country´s fame.

But in the end, I ended up loving tango, good Argentinean Meat, and forgetting about Hugo altogether.

DON’T FORGET TO KEEP AN EYE ON WHERE I MATURE MY MEAT!
