Hi and welcome to Electric Blue Food! My name is Eva and I am a photographer and food enthusiast based in the middle of Sweden. I have a real passion for desserts – my favourite foods to prepare! My other interests include travelling, landscape photography, live music and writing. Although I’m mostly focused on food, I like to blog about my other passions here and there. I have been keeping on and off blogs (mostly in Italian) for the past 10 years, but I got a little more serious after I moved to Sweden in 2014.
If you’re familiar with the concept of “picky eater”, I can describe myself as quite the opposite. In fact, I am a food enthusiast blessed with the most positive of attitudes. Food makes me happy. Making food makes me happy. Being offered food makes me happy. Most of all, I have this incurable positive attitude towards all food. I come to appreciate even the saddest and poorest meals. Just to make my point I even love airplane food. You know, that overcooked and tasteless microwaved stuff that comes in tiny boxes along with a chewy bun and freezing water? I love that.
I was born and raised in north-western Italy from a Polish mom and an Italian dad. I was raised bilingual, the best thing my parents could gift me with, and have picked up a few more languages along the way – currently in the process of learning the sixth. During my university years I spent six months in Norway and another six months between Canada and the United States. After graduating I have also lived in Poland for two years, where I met a wonderful guy who shared my same passion for Northern Europe. Together we decided to move to Sweden.
Along with completing my university degrees and taking the time to develop my passions, in the past I have worked a variety of jobs that have taught me even more skills. In no specific order, I have been the person who delivers your lunch to your office; the voice at the other end of the phone solving (big) customer service problems; the ski resort mascot you’ve taken a selfie with; the one who took your wedding photos; the person who fills your glass with more wine at cultural events; a middle school Home Economics teacher with her clothes constantly stained of flour.
I have lived many exciting lives and I love to tell stories. Welcome to my blog, I hope you have found something you’ll love.
