About Margaret Vasileva

Margaret Vasileva was in born in Sofia Bulgaria, a beautiful country nestled in Eastern Europe right above Turkey and Greece. Her heritage has left her with a passion for authentic and colorful foods as well as an obsession for fresh produce. "I can spend an hour picking just the right tomatoes for my evening salad, and I really mean an hour! Good food is all about the ingredients. Europeans have always known this, and I am glad to finally see this trend coming to the United States." From the endless produce markets of Bulgaria to the "Wild West", at first the move to Oklahoma eleven years ago was a difficult one, but now as a staff writer for TulsaFood she is out to showcase how diverse the Oklahoma cuisine scene has become!
