Hi! I’m Sofia. Papaya Pieces is my personal project which is not about papayas.

Five Facts

1. Mission

Dedicated to homemade cooking and travels. With an approach to appreciating traditions, nature and slow living.

2. {Multi} Culture

I am from Australia, Indonesia and Spain in alphabetical order and have lived in eight countries. I currently live in Barcelona, Spain. My fiancé is French. The best values of all these cultures are reflected in my recipes and lifestyle.

3. Qualifications

Even though I don’t currently work in a pharmacy, I am a qualified pharmacist with nutritional studies included. This is why sometimes I might get a bit nerdy. This is also why I don’t easily buy into all the health food obsessions that everyone else may be raving about.

4. Name

The name Papaya Pieces is a nod to when my mum used to cut papayas into pieces back when we were living in South East Asia. I couldn’t stop eating them.

5. Caution

I have a problem with writing recipes. I’m not big on measuring. The amounts in my recipes are approximate. Not all ingredients are the same -one orange can be juicier than another. Not all stoves, ovens and utensils induce heat equally. It’s best to look, smell and taste to know if it’s right.
