Switzerland, Jungfraujoch - ice melt

Some years ago, my mum recorded in my baby book that Fiona was ‘enthusiastic about chocolate blancmange but isn’t keen on strained carrots’. Nothing much has changed. When I’m not pushing carrots to the side of the plate or picking out capsicum, I’m eyeing off what’s on the dessert menu.

In my other life, I’m a Project Manager in the service of out great nation’s public. This funds my travels and the chance to spend stupid sums of money on meals and cooking equipment that I was sure I needed at the time. My blog ‘TIFFIN’, traces my bite sized food adventures and gives me an opportunity to connect with people all over the world.

My partner in travel and eating is my husband Anthony or, as he has been dubbed, Mr Tiffin. Between us we have racked up enough air miles and selfies in front of historic monuments to put the most seasoned traveller to shame but in the end, there’s no place like home. Still, the story of eating crisp guinea pig in Salta, Peru is something we shall dine out on for a while to come. When we travel, I always make time to visit local markets, specialty shops and to hunt out dishes and treats that have been recommended to me.
