Chef, Educator, Speaker, Content Creator, Recipe Developer, Food Consultant, Marketer
Food is my love language, my channel for creative expression, my cultural celebration and connection to Mother Earth. It is my obsession. My foundation and core strength comes from my deep connection and knowledge of Asian food, ingredients, techniques and dishes. I am deeply inspired by my travels around the world and it has enriched and matured me in my food journey. Food is an expression of my connections, relationships and memories. Baking is my form of meditation. I cook to nurture and bake to delight.
