Natasha McGarrell

English-born Natasha has been travelling from an early age. Formerly a fussy eater, her travels have given her a passion for food and now loves trying new things. On a student’s budget, she can often be found at home eating her Dad’s paella or at her local Thai restaurant. Lover all things spicy, Natasha also has a massive sweet tooth, which didn’t help her waistline much during her time living in France!
