About The Bon Vivant Club


Welcome to the Bon Vivant Club! This is a space to explore Food travel destinations, Recipes, Gastronomy History, Culture, Food Science.

Everyone loves food, let’s be honest! But it might be a difficult topic for some, because of health issues, because of lack of time, some might think they don’t have cooking skills. But food is such a big part of our culture, human history and, of course, our everyday lives. We are very much in love with Gastronomy and everything there is revolving around it. And we want you to fall in love with it too! So welcome to The Bon Vivant Club!

You are what you eat, as they say, so what do you choose?

This is not going to be a blog where we discuss the newest diet fads, that are terrible for your health in the long run, detox days or weeks, weird “diet” recipes.


Our intention is to share gastronomic tourism experiences, local and traditional foods, enjoying and having fun while cooking, socialising, learning new things, going through our grandparents’ recipes, looking through old and new gastronomy themed books and just have fun!
