Hello, fellow Sweet Tooth Traveler!

Whether it’s creamy German quark cheesecake, traditional English scones slathered in jam and rich clotted cream or a simple bowl of fresh berries with a sprinkling of vanilla sugar, I love dessert.

Hi, I’m Cate, a former expat with a life-long global heart and sweet tooth. When I travel, I love exploring local culture through food, especially a country’s sweet treats.

When I’m not traveling, I feed my global heart by making desserts from around the world in my own little kitchen in North Carolina.

If you’re a (wannabe) traveler with a sweet tooth, you’ll love the International Desserts Blog. My goal is to share my best travel tips and experiences, cultural insights, and delicious recipes with you.

Be sure to grab my two free ebooks: Easy Mini Tarts and European Christmas Cookies!

And check out my Sweet Tooth Travel Guides! Get the inside scoop on what to eat in Amsterdam, Budapest,  Cuenca and more.

Cate in the Netherlands

I’m smiling because I’d just had a really good Dutch apple pastry.
And who doesn’t love huge Dutch clogs? 🙂
