We hope you enjoy our blog. We travel, we cook, we eat, we shop, we read and we observe. We’re always on the hunt for an authenticity, whether it’s food, surroundings or the experience itself. It brings us to the small towns and the gleaming metropoli, to the divey dumps and the hoi-polloi white linen tables.
We’re a married couple, with two grown daughters, living in Ottawa, Canada. Rob’s background is software and music, and Maureen’s is garden design and hockey, and it just so happens that we’re totally excited by good food and we are passionate about photography.
Often when we travel and post daily updates on Facebook, or just update our status with what we’re cooking for dinner, friends and family have suggested we should start a food blog. So this is it. On these pages, we’ll document our experiences in searching out authentic food experiences from our own kitchen to where in the world life takes us.
A word about the name of our blog: “Happy Mouth” is a term we’ve used with each other for years. We often declare that we have “happy mouth” at the end of a terrific meal and the taste of the food, with its spices and textures and all of its accompaniments, are lingering in a haze of joyful satisfaction.
