I am Caro Blackwell a passionate foodie, french wine lover and photographer. I live in the Haute Savoie, Rhone Alps region of France. Originally a Cordon Bleu and Culinary Institute of America trained cook and I hold WSET (Wine and Spirit Education Trust) certificates I and II. Working as a professional cook on-board a luxury charter yacht based both in the Caribbean and Mediterranean for several years fed my thirst for travel and seeing the world. My hobby of photography, I turned into a profession by studying which I really enjoyed. This meant that I graduated from The Photography Institute with a Diploma in Professional Photography in 2014.
Taste of Savoie
My blog enables me to indulge my passions of both photographing and eating my way around this wonderful region of France and the Genevois area of Switzerland, trying local dishes, testing recipes, tasting local wines and cheeses, travelling and eating in some superb restaurants! This is a region that has many wonderful food traditions. It is a region steeped in foodie history with a plethora of local produce. I am lucky enough to get the opportunity to travel throughout France and occasionally further afield.
