Hello, there! My name is Maryanne. Welcome to my food blog. I started The Little Epicurean in 2011 as means to share my baking and traveling adventures with my friends and family. Since then, this blog has grown and developed into something I’m quite proud of. I am very thankful to my readers, followers, and visitors. I appreciate you all so much!
To me, sharing food is the best way to show love. Food is such a large part of every culture. Many of my family traditions and memories involve food. I can’t remember a birthday without the cake and candles, a summer without barbecues and gallons of iced tea, or a Christmas without my mom’s beef bourguignon.
My idea of a perfect meal involves lots of noodles, dumplings, and rice. Yes, I am all about carb-loading. I am lactose-interolant, but I am more than willing to endure the pain and bloating for a scoop of Straus brown sugar banana ice cream with chocolate chunks.
I live in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles with my adorable pup Charlie. Currently, my world revolves around him and baking.
