Dale and Valarie Nat, a husband and wife team of foodies started Unstoppable Foodie in 2018. Valarie’s gifts center around cooking great food. After years of cooking for a foodie husband, four kids, three exchange students, friends and family, Valarie has transformed herself into a fearless home chef who loves the challenges of cooking with a new recipe or ingredient. Dale loves reading, writing, photography and sampling new food. At the intersection of their passions for creating and sampling new foods, writing, reading, traveling, and photography, Unstoppable Foodie was created.
Our approach is simple, as stated by Julia Child; “Learn how to cook – try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless and above all have fun.” We do not take ourselves too seriously and always have fun around discovering and preparing amazing food. We want to use our passion to discover great recipes and food and share them with others. We love the simple pleasures in life; great food, great friends and great conversation.
We believe a “recipe” is a metaphor for life. How much time, quality, ingredients and effort you put into it, determines how amazing it turns out at the end. Come join us as we pursue great recipes, ingredients, and cooking techniques to produce a “five senses” appreciation of food. We use sight, sound, smell, touch and most importantly taste to create and experience amazing food. We love the quote by cookbook author Gesine Lemcke, “eating is a necessity, but cooking is an art.” We hope you enjoy our blog as we pursue of the art of cooking.
We are all born with God given gifts, talents and abilities inside of us. It is our responsibility to discover and develop those gifts. We believe Unstoppable Foodie is at the intersection of our gifts; cooking, photography, traveling, reading and writing. We love discovering new food, meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. We invite you to share in our food journey. Come explore the world with us, one dish at a time. Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think.
