Glamorous Bite: Food, Wine and a food blog to love!

I am so excited to introduce you to the ladies of Glamorous Bite , a mother and daughter team who live in Santa Barbara, California.  Judit {the mom} and Corina {her daughter} enjoy sharing healthy and indulgent foods infused with a touch of wine. Their recipes are easy to follow, good for you, comforting, and reflect the taste of the region. On their gorgeous food blog they take us on a culinary journey with stunning photos, wine pairing suggestions, reviews, and videos. Their passion for cooking with wine is inspired by living near the California wine country and ocean and from their many travels throughout Europe. I have been a big fan of their site and their delicious recipes for a while now, and I am certain that you will be too!


Judit and Corina were kind enough to give us a peek into their delicious world, I know you will enjoy meeting them if you haven’t already!


1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
Judit is the mom and Corina the daughter behind the food blog called Glamorous Bite . We bring a little of both of our personalities and flavors to each dish. No matter where we lived, our life always centered around good food. We find joy in preparing meals with fresh local ingredients and sharing that with family and friends. Our family has always been interested in good wine and food and finding great pairings still completes our meals today.

2.When did you realize you wanted to write a food blog together?
We are so excited to share our recipes on because eating foods that are good for you should be joyful and fun. We add a touch of wine to many of our dishes because wine gives an extra layer of flavor. Our love for the Santa Barbara wine country brought us to the region and after we were invited to give several cooking classes together we discovered how wonderful it is to teach people how to live more deliciously.

3.What other jobs did you have before that?
Judit: In Germany I worked as a Commercial Graphic Designer and after moving to Scottsdale, Arizona as well as in Santa Barbara I was fortunate to combine my two great passion for home design and home sales as a Real Estate agent.
Corina: Web Design and graphics for an International software company. I love being creative in an artistic way and designing out of the box.

4. What inspires you?
We are inspired by fresh local ingredients and just completed our free eBook E Cookbook that has a variety of indulgent and healthy recipes. It is alright to sometimes indulge in moderation! We are also working on our next book, where we share more healthy alternatives and a better way of eating right, that we hope will inspire others to eat more consciously.

5. What are your three “go to” recipes?
Good food & wine makes a every day special and if it is easy to prepare well then we even look forward to spending some time in the kitchen. Our Lemon Rosemary Chicken Santa Barbara and  Pea Tendril Salad are easy and good for you and the Meringue Tart with Wine Poached Pears makes a lovely finale to any busy or hectic day.


Please Give us a peek into your life, loves and inspirations:

1. My favorite colors are:
Judit: Mostly natural harmonious colors because it is very soothing for me. For accent colors I love to use red or pink and a touch of gold, which transforms everything to glamorous.
Corina: Magenta, blue, neon green, violet. Bright vibrant colors make me happy and I like to combine them uniquely.

2. Right now I’m reading:
Judit: The Success Principles by Jack Canfield.
Corina: The Golden City, a historical fantasy novel.

3. My favorite place is:
Judit: Now this is a difficult question, because I love to visit places filled with beautiful architecture and old world charm. Right now top of my list are Salzburg, Oslo, Geneva, Villefranche-sur-Mer and of course Santa Barbara. Sorry, but perhaps I should have mentioned Florence as well. So many beautiful places and so little time…
Corina: There are many favorite spots and I do love to travel and learn. In general I like to be out in verdant nature or exploring an architecturally exciting city.

4. I can’t live without:
Judit: Champagne. It does make me feel more glamorous!
Corina: Gelato! I can simply have it daily in Europe.

5. FrenchGardenHouse items I love:
Judit: Your French Garden House shop is filled with the most beautiful and authentic items that makes it very difficult to select just a few. As a proclaimed Francophile I love the gorgeous ELOQUENCE St. Remy French Reproduction Tressel Table with the ELOQUENCE Provence Linen Dining Chairs because they are absolutely glorious!

Corina: Do I have to choose just one? I adore the Hand Painted Enamel Portrait Bonbonniere, it is an item to be cherished. The Vintage Filigree Ormolu Perfume Bottle has such delicate detail and the 19th Century Silk Champagne Blonde Floral Lace Shawl would tempt me to wear it. For a daily touch of France, your L’amour C’est la Vie glasses would be perfect to grace an antique table setting.

    I love it~ I’m always looking for new recipes, as well as great wines to try. If you love them, I’m sure I will too. Thanks again for making sure all of our wine tags from FrenchGardenHouse arrived on time, Lidy. They were a big hit at our wine auction!

  2. Jayne, you are so welcome! I’m glad the wine tags worked so well for each bottle in your auction, and that you were able to raise so much money for your charity, too. Let me know what your favorites are on the Glamorous Bites blog!

  3. Pauline

    Thank you. Always up for a new recipe to try, especially now that I’m trying to eat leaner and lighter. Your blog is the first one I read when it comes to my in box. Can you pm me on Facebook about the miniature paintings I enquired about last week? Pauline
