Bonjour! I am Aiste. A few years ago, I used to be what is commonly called a “top fashion model”, working in Paris, New York or London for major international brands and designers. It’s a known fact: top models don’t eat, do they? Well, I did! I loved to eat, and still do! I’m passionate about good food and fine cuisine, and love to travel around in quest of great restaurants, gourmet landmarks and gastronomical trends. I also have a camera grafted on my left hand, and can’t help taking and sharing pictures of my best food discoveries! Yes, I’m what you could call an enthusiastic world “food-trotter”. And I would like you, dear readers, to be my first-class travelling companions...
