About the blog
Welcome to Leena Eats, a big old helping of food, travel and gastronomy with a side of baby stories, a dash of bacon and a friendly butt pat. But only if you’re lucky.
The blog was originally created as a way to document Leena’s move from Chicago to Australia (where she earned a masters in gastronomy from the University of Adelaide). After graduation, Leena and her blog moved back to Chicago for a tasty but arctic year. These days, you can find her in warmer San Francisco Bay Area, eating, writing and teaching cooking classes.
