Welcome to the Gourmandee Blog!

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, I started this blog as a way to share my love of food and wine by exploring recipes, reviewing restaurants and trying new wines. My love of food started as a child watching my Jamaican parents cook. They never followed a recipe. They liked to just create meals and I thought that was amazing! As an adult, I started exploring different cuisines by trying new restaurants. I then decided to see if I could recreate some of my favourite meals in my own kitchen. The journey has been fun! The Single Serve Series caters to those that want to make one or two portions instead of a large batch of food. The recipes are portioned for one with leftovers for enough for 2. I also began learning about wine by going to wine tastings with friends and realized that I don’t have to be expert when choosing wine. I just have to like it!  

In 2023, I started the Gourmandee Tees apparel line. The Catch Flights Not Feelings collection was designed to express appreciation for beer, champagne and wine in a witty way. These fun t-shirts can be worn to create fun conversation. You can wear it to a concert, picnic, travelling to other countries or even wine tasting. Why not wear it with friends? Get a group together to wear it to a bachelor/bachelorette party, birthday outing or girls/guys night out. Have fun with it!
