Hi there! I’m Marissa. Welcome to Marissa Makes Food, a blog that highlights international foods and travel tips. Sharing my travels and recipes with the world has been a dream of mine for a long time, and it became a reality when I launched this blog in 2018.

I believe that food is more than just protein, carbs, and fat. What makes food interesting is the stories and culture behind it, whether it’s a family recipe, a favorite restaurant, or the way that food has shaped cultures worldwide (and vice versa). The flavor combinations are endless and so are the stories.

The goal of this blog is to cook foods that I’ve loved in my travels, and traveling to discover new foods and recipes. I hope you’ll follow me on my international culinary journey!
