The ” Recipes ” of my Smile


365 Days of pandemic experienced by Chef and Traveler Cristian Marino

This book is not meant to be a cookbook, but rather a way to share what I have learned from this unusual year. 

Confirming that, the optimistic approach to life helped me to overcome an unpleasant situation experienced as a victim of human rights violations at Kuala Lumpur Airport. 

My journey retraces the 12 months spent across: Indonesia, Kuala Lumpur, Bucharest, Dubai and Calabria. 

The 12 recipes cooked during the quarantine period lived in Bucharest represent the symbol of a year of pandemic and how important it is to keep the smile factor in every “Recipe”. 

I am convinced that my story will help you to look at things from a different perspective, to learn some secrets of my life and my cuisine. 

Above all to remind you the importance of Smiling.
