ABOUT THE BLOG
Welcome to Foodies Cucina!
Who are the people behind the blog?
Foodies Cucina is a joint adventure by James Xin Lee and Tina Lee, two of Australia’s longest operating and reputable food writers and professional taste-testers who are still active today since 2008. Having been in the food and wine industry since 2008, James and Tina has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and experience of the Australian food scene.
FoodiesCucina.com was transformed from the ever-popular and successful food blog Adelaidefoodies.com. The blog was also a founding member of Food Bloggers Australia in 2012, the only professional association for Food Bloggers.
Grown up in Adelaide, James has genuine interests in food and its revolution, in Australian produce as well as in social media promotion of Australia landscape. Being a ex-wine professional with many other hats, James writes articles with taste analysis to show readers what he experiences with food. James is especially interested in how food and drink can pair together to improve the taste sensations, whether it is wine, cider, tea, coffee or any other types.
Tina is a self-taught chef and professional photographer for the site. She has been in cosmetic and beauty industry since 2006 and was the writer for a million-reader blog with several published books.
James and Tina are travel addicts and would love to share their experience and tips with the readers of foodiescucina.com on destinations they have been to.
Where is Foodies Cucina based?
James and Tina are currently located in Canberra, ACT and frequently travels around the country and internationally.
