Moving to Lanzarote was just a crazy dream a few months ago… The day we took this picture of the amazing Famara beach, we knew we wanted a radical change in our lives and that change would happen here, in Lanzarote. We had no idea how or when we would make it but we knew we wanted to call this peculiar island “Home”.
The volcanic landscape is breath-taking from the white sanded beach of Papagayo to the beautiful sandy coves of Orzola. La Geria’s vineyards, the first European grapevines to be harvested every year, produce a unique volcanic Malmsey white wine. The Fire Mountains of Timanfaya National Park are like a piece of Mars on Earth.
And, as if nature hadn’t given his island enough beauty, artist Cesar Manrique left it a huge cultural legacy. Lanzarote is full of surprises whether you’re on land or under water visiting one of the island’s numerous diving spots.
Lanzarote’s special beauty got us hooked while its rich agricultural landscape that produces mini veggies full of flavour gave us the inspiration for a culinary-oriented professional project…
Here we are. We left Paris and our old professional lives behind and we now call ourselves “Conejeros”. What started as a crazy dream now feels pretty realistic. We’re having such a good time working on the recipes we’ll share with other food passionate like us… No doubt, we just took the best decision of our lives 🙂
Now, we still have a lot of work ahead until Cook In Lanzarote starts offering a (great) food experience to the island’s visitors but we’re on it and will keep you updated.
In the meantime, we’ll be sharing with you on this blog our adventure and tell you about the people, foods and things that make Lanzarote such a special island.
