Who is Lucina Cucina?
I´m Lucia Plankova alias Lucina.
Lucina-Cucina.com is my realm where I am passionate about cooking and photography .... I write about things I love, who move me, meet me, I deal with and inspire me. My blog is still quite, very fresh - it has been online since 1.4.2017 and I run it with my friend myself. We love to live and explore the world and of course also we love to eat. Our blog is very versatile and interesting, as well as our lives and our likes are. I was always a passionate, imaginative, creative person who was interested in everything. The joy of contact and my way of being cosmopolitan are also reflected in my recipes.
Originally, I come from Slovakia from a very small town called Krasno. I've always been a city man, I've lived in many different big cities, and I've had a lot of experience. A long time ago I studied at the Pedagogical and Social Academy and my dream was always to be a doctor for people. That is why I have strictly pursued my goal and have moved to Innsbruck / Östrreich. At first as a Slovak child-girl without a knowledge of German, in order to become powerful in the German language.
However, unlike planned, life had provided for me a different way.
To put it briefly: I have for a while a small, modest Beauty & Health Center in Innsbruck's old town, which gave me the wonderful feeling of being happy and fulfilled. But this happiness was not of long duration. Through two heavy destiny events everything changed in my life. (The whole story you can read shortly in my book ;-)) Now I live not in the city, but in a small rural hamlet consisting of just 4 families in the middle of the Tyrolean mountains at 1400 meters above sea level. The stark contrast to before, however, this peace, the country life, the animal world, the view into the valley, the great, peasant neighbors ...... all this I would not miss any more.
What is Lucina-Cucina.com?
I am an enthusiastic hobby cook and I share with my friend the love for cooking, eating and photographing. We love fresh, high quality food and good homemade food. We appreciate the hospitality and the jointly celebrated food and drink culture. Here you can find our recipe creations, illustrated mostly with many photos, everything delicious. If you are an enthusiast who loves to experiment, a notorious health and well-being or a person who loves good food, we will be happy if you´ll share your passion for good food with us.
Some of our recipes are traditional dishes, but we also like to be creative and cook with what is right there. Our recipes should serve as inspiration and should not be strictly adhered to.
"Creativity and fun in the kitchen is the most important thing"
I would like to motivate and inspire my readers, instead of giving them fixed guidelines. Give yourself enough room to vary the recipes according to your own ideas, according to your own taste - this blog should motivate you.
I also tackle topics about fruits & vegetables, cooking, baking, drinks, spices .... An important aspect for me is the origin of the food. Bio does not have to be, the regionality is clearly worth for me. In the case of animal food such as eggs, milk and meat, however, I only buy bio. I love being creative in the kitchen, trying out new recipes or creating ones. My recipes are usually uncomplicated and easy to copy.
Give me Feedback!
For me it´s very important to be in contact with my readers and other bloggers. I especially like that my readership is already very international. That is exactly why there are three languages on my blog - you can always choose between German, English and my mother tongue Slovakian. The international, English side is intended for our foreign friends.
Trilingualism means not only triple effort, but triple receipt of messages, so I ask you for understanding, if your mail i´ll not be replied promptly.
However, I process every mail by myself and personally. So forgive me, if it will take sometimes more time for your personal Lucina-Cucina-racing pigeon to find you.
