Looking to Exchange, Share and Learn with & from You!

Hi everyone,

My name is Carmella Lanni-Giardina (aka Macaroon). I was born and raised in New York City. My husband and I co-write a vegan food blog called "The Food Duo" (www.thefoodduo.com). Having grown up with family in the food industry and later marrying the son of chef with a long lineage in the culinary arts, I LOVE and exploring new trends and styles of cuisine from across the globe. As a vegan, I find I've truly opened up my palate and willing to try almost any meat-free and dairy-free creation out there, which has been interesting, to say the least.

Though my "real" life has me in a career in e-commerce and as grad student of Management & Systems, it is my wish to become a food and travel writer. I've always loved to write and tell stories about the new places I've discovered or just expanding upon tales that have popped into my head. Through my experiences, I've really missed not dedicating as much time to my creative side as I would like. BUT, I'm hoping and working to change that.

I'm hoping to connect with my fellow bloggers, vegan or omnivore! Let's connect here on BlogHer, my blog or social media! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Best regards,
