About MeHi, welcome to Diverse Dinners, my name is Viella and I’m a food enthusiast and here’s a little about me.

I started cooking at the age of 8, mostly dishes and drinks for my family, until I found the confidence to handle dinners. As I grew older I developed my skills in the kitchen and became quite adept at catering family dinner parties.

I grew up in London but New York is now my home. Both cities have very diverse food cultures, so I enjoy creating recipes that pair ingredients from far flung places. I feel at home in the kitchen, and the only place I am as comfortable, strangely, is in the arrivals terminal in a new city, so, I enjoy meeting new people and eating foods from around the globe. I decided to start a blog to share my recipes, thoughts and experiences and I hope you enjoy.

If you decide to try one of my recipes, or have a cool twist on something I have created, drop me a line and let me know.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
