Hi and welcome! I am Juliette, an Italian girl living in the Netherlands (for the long version read below).
Details, naturally is where I gather and share my love for traveling, exploring, styling food, nature, and good music.
I live with Roberto, my boyfriend, who every now and then logs in too and shares a recipe on Details, naturally. He is a cook, loves to travel and take his longboard and cruise across the canals.
Juliette: “Despite being one hundred percent Dutch, I feel Italian just as much. I grew up in the middle of the nature of north-western Italy and I moved to the Netherlands with Roberto only two years ago, after graduating. I am extremely passionate about photography and table top/food styling. Nature always inspires my photography, therefore I tend to use natural pallettes, lights and props. I have been a vegetarian for a long time and I find it very important to eat healthy, and nourish your body with wholesome, organic food. I love to travel and whenever I can I pack my bags and leave.”
Roberto: “When I was little and nonna was making homemade pasta, I used to sneak in the kitchen and watch. I grew up surrounded by people who loved food. At dinner the whole family gathered and every night it was a feast of wonderfully fresh and amazing food. When I moved to the Netherlands with Juliette, I started having nothing. I didn’t speak any Dutch or English, and it was pretty predictable that I would have been looking for a job in an Italian restaurant. I started off as a dishwasher, I worked in different restaurants and despite the environments often not being very friendly, I developed an unconditional and intense love for food. I worked 6 days a week, 13 hours a day, but I learned. I learned so much. I became assistant cook first, then I became responsible for starters and desserts, and eventually I became all-round cook. I am now working at a wonderful restaurant and I learned to speak Dutch; I plan to keep working hard and learn more to maybe one day be able to fulfill my dream of becoming a good chef.”
We both love the travel and explore cultures, being active and have a positive attitude towards life.
