FoodieWineLover - Gina (Martino) Zarcadoolas
South Florida

Bio: My name is Gina (Martino) Zarcadoolas and I'm the name behind the blog, Foodiewinelover. I am of Italian and Middle Eastern descent, and spent part of my childhood in the Caribbean. I'm married to a Greek and I live in South Florida, where there is a big Cuban influence. As you can see, I am multi-cultural, and enjoy traditional and authentic dishes. I am a vivacious woman with a zest for life and enjoy living La Dolce Vita. I am a wine enthusiast, a passionate foodie and a world traveler. In between blogging, I sell and invest in Real Estate. I have been inspired by many different cuisines during my travels abroad, and it fascinates me, the way food plays a major role in cultures all over the globe. I have had the pleasure to visit many countries and cities in my lifetime, and savored many delicious ethnic cuisines. I am really excited to discover WordPress and share with you my passion for food, wine and travels around the world. I feel blessed to have visited so many places such as Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Mexico City, Taxco, Acapulco, and Cancun in Mexico, The Bahamas, St. John, St.Thomas, San Jose, Guanacaste in Costa Rica, Rome, Naples, Capri, Florence, Venice, Lake Como, Milan, in Italy, Lugano, Switzerland, Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Rhodes, in Greece, Turkey, Corsica, Monaco, Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes, Barcelona, Spain, Palma De Majorca, USA, in which I now live with my beautiful family. In 2013 I visited wine country, Sonoma and Napa Valley, and had the time of my life. I cook passionately and love to entertain family and friends while sipping on some amazing wine. I will share with you some of my delicious culinary creations, and some beautiful pictures I captured, during my travels. I hope you will sit back, relax and enjoy My Food, Wine & Travel Lifestyles.

  1. Thanks for the follow, fellow “Gina!”. My website “Gina’s Inspirations” had been divided into two separate sites, so you may want to follow me at one or both of those sites instead. Gorgeous photo, btw!

  2. Thanks for sharing your recipes and knowledge. You’re sure to open a lot of people up to new food adventures. With this blog, you have really created a treasure chest and wealthy resource bank. I like that you are so open about your background and how it is an obvious influence on how you see food. I look forward to delving into some of your recipes and trying out some new dishes. Or just learning how to make some of those dishes on my own as opposed to going out…

So in 2016 I turned 50. I was in Italy for my 21st, 30th and 40th. To keep this birthday tradition going I always knew I'd be in Italy for my 50! This blog starts with my 5 week adventure in Puglia but my love affair with Italy continues.....
