I like to call my style of cooking International Modern Comfort Food. I take the mystique out of what you think might be difficult and show you, the everyday cook, that you can do it, too! I love cycling and hiking and am an avid world traveler. Keviniscooking is where I share my favorite recipes that I've been creating, adapting and collecting on my culinary journey as well as travels.  I live in San Diego with my partner of 33 years, Dave and their two Labradoodles Oliver and Kodi.
