A PASSION + A FOODIE TRAVELER = ME This line sums up who I am in very few words. I love to travel and I love to cook! I bring inspirations from my international travels to your plate. Growing up on authentic home-cooked Vietnamese food while eating American food in school cafés, and extensive traveling experiences bring many flavors to my kitchen. As an art director by trade, I am constantly thinking outside the "spice" box and love coming up with fresh new twists on the classics. When I'm not cooking, I'm being a culture soaker by checking out new places/cities and food to try, and also writing recipes and food blogs. I hope you enjoy some of my creations on here!
What spice defines you, and why?
My Vietnamese background brings a lot of fresh herbs to my kitchen, fresh cilantro, basil, culantro, lemongrass, and shiso leaves to name a few. For other spices, I am a fan of aromatics, such as coriander, curry and turmeric, and of course...(ahem) Fish Sauce and Sriracha (Shocking, right?!)
