We are a family of four: Spanish father, Russian mother and California-born daughter and son (Bilingual family living in a different language environment), using One Parent One Language (OPOL) strategy.

Our core is exposing our daughter to languages through culture immersion to create an emotional bond with her heritage languages.
This blog is our view on parenting and our cultures though mostly food.Why concentrate on food? It has an enormous influence on us. It is the interconnecting point in our couple as in Spain and Russia people cook and eat a lot, for our family meal preparation is a process when we fill all the ingredients with our love and energy that is transmitted to other family members. And in spite of dining out and dropping in for tapas to bars we do believe that by cooking and sharing a meal at home is the key to enjoy family company and raise children.
