About Me

.

While I was going through my old travel photos one day, I realized that I had just as many food photos as I had travel ones. I am constantly taking pictures of food, and I truly believe that that is a big reason why travelling is so much fun…the experience of tasting new flavors in exotic destinations and settings. The main reason for starting my blog is to have a central collection of all of my food adventures. Instead of just looking at past pictures as I used to do, I now have a personal diary of my food journeys.

What does Nooschi mean?

Pronounced noo-shee, the name is a true portmanteau, and is combination of mine and my husband's cultures: Persian and Chinese. In Persian, the word for bon appétit is noosh – e – jan, and the word for eating in Chinese is chi. You put the two together, and you get Nooschi!

Hope you enjoy the blog, and bon appétit…or in my world, Nooschi!

It just occurred to me that your worldliness, blogging skills and connection to Australia might uniquely qualify you for The Best Job In The World! Just a thought... :)

Funny...I've actually been trying to get on their website to check it out, but their site has crashed! You're not the first to tell me that.

Your San Diego adventures make me want to go back!!! But the assortment of Ottawa restaurants will keep me busy for now!
PS: Song Ha has the best Pad Thai in town. Nothing fancy, but its amazing.

I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to come across your blog but i'm glad I did (thanks to Don from foodiePrints).

Your blog looks amazing and i'm looking forward to following on your food adventures in Ottawa and abroad!

hi... i'm looking for a bit of advice re: food blogging. I have questions about propriety of taking food/restaurant pictures - do you ask the establishment first? do they ever hassle you at all?

Rachelle said...

I don't. But I don't use a flash or get in anyone's way or ask for anything from the staff. And I do my best to do it discretely, as much as possible anyway.

You must remember Turkish Bread from your time in Australia. I used to be able to buy it in Toronto (Manoucher) but so far haven't found it in Ottawa. Have you seen it here???

Took a peek through the blog - great reviews and you've featured some restaurants in Ottawa that are unknown to me - can't wait to check them out myself! Love your "spotted" feature also! We also noticed that our travels revolve around food - we're more likely to go somewhere if we hear about a new dish or a cuisine we want to try out! Our last taste adventure was to Montreal this summer to try out Kouing Amann and Fish Tacos!
