About me

Hi there!

I’m Leno, author, photographer and recipe developer of Crazy Cucumber Blog. In this project, you’ll find some of my experiments with amazing food ingredients and my culinary research. Cooking is my passion.

My food philosophy is to eat seasonal, natural, whole foods and maintain good portion control. While this has never been a vegan or gluten-free blog, most recipes fall into these two categories. This blog is not about any one diet, this blog about balance. Food is an important part of a happy balanced life. And I hope my recipes will help you find your own way to balance.

My culinary journey has begun in Bali (Indonesia) where I’ve found a lot of new ingredients and inspiration. After 3.5 years in this beautiful place, we decide to move to New Zealand. Here I’m currently living. One of the purest place in the world with own food traditions. So as result two worlds mixed in my blog. And I’m happy to share some of my best recipes with you.

Another part of my soul belongs to photo art. As a fashion photographer in past, I really love this magic of light and color. Video shooting is a new thing for me but I really enjoy learning this tool. Really hope you’ll find my videos helpful.
This is very important to have feedback from you. Please leave your comments and subscribe if you like my recipes.
Welcome to my blog. Hope you will enjoy it!
