Some people eat to live, I live to eat

My name is Birgit, 26 years old. I am studying Communication in Tilburg. Was born in Steenbergen, but I live in Bergen op Zoom now. My passion for food started growing only a few years ago, in contrast to a lot of other people. I grew up with the well known Dutch potatoes, meat and vegetables combination. We didn't have a lot of variation in our meals, so my mum decided to do something about it. A few years ago, we started experimenting and trying new things. I think it is important to eat varied, even when you don't have much time. I try to taste everything, and I really dislike people who say that they don't like something without trying it first. 

I don't believe in food that comes out of packages, I think you can easily make everything fresh yourself and it tastes a lot better too. I try to make healthier choices in cooking, but I also like to eat some fast food every once in a while. But only if it is fresh and home made of course, I really like baking too, especially sweet baked goods. I like to cook, but I also really enjoy going out for dinner. I love trying different restaurants and exploring the menu. 

Eating should be a party and not a boring everyday obligation.
