Welcome to a matter of taste 

It’s a website about food & travel where you’ll find recipes, hotel, flight and lounge reviews, trip itineraries, travel tips and honest opinions about restaurants (and other foodie-places) from all over the world.

Who are we?

Me. My name is Aga. I was born and raised in South-East Poland and ever since I remember I loved spending time in the kitchen with my Mum and grandmas. At the age of 6, I mastered my first cake – a basic vanilla pound cake. My Mum is the one to blame (or to thank rather) for my other love – travel. She took me for my first trip to Paris on a plane when I was only 3 years old and actually my earliest childhood memories are of that event.

I’m a cat person, have a weird obsession with alpacas, drink too much coffee and take too many pictures (you can hire me to take photos for you!). I’m an entrepreneur and would love to show you Poland. I enjoy cocktails by (or in) a pool, champagne breakfasts, preparing awesome itineraries and good design. I can’t imagine my life without travel.

“You go away for a long time and return a different person – you never come all the way back.”

Hubby. Great travel companion, my private driver & photo assistant. Often appears on photos as the hand model but prefers to stay anonymous. Takes care of the backend side of the blog and sometimes contributes to the content.

Fan of good coffee, private pool villas and well-designed Android apps. Reads terms & conditions in his spare time.


In 2010 my husband and I arrived in Australia with our life compressed into 2 suitcases. Currently, we’re based in Melbourne VIC.

A matter of taste came to life in December 2011 as a way to keep all my favourite recipes in one place. I soon discovered I also enjoy sharing my food & travel adventures and the blog started growing.

The website is frequently visited by readers from Australia, USA, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore & Japan and has some 35  000+ page views each month.
