I’ve been meaning to start a food blog forever. I spend way too much time thinking about what I’m going to cook, where I’m going to source some new ingredient, or what restaurant to go to next. My culinary style can best be described as eclectic, with a strong tendency toward Southeast Asian food. I’ve moved around a fair bit in my life, but several years in New York stamped my approach to food. Living close to a proper Chinatown, with markets full of amazing vegetables and every ethnicity of restaurant under the sun within a short subway ride convinced me that learning about the world’s most delicious cuisines was a basic pleasure of life. The aim of this blog is to share my explorations: in Vietnamese food, Malaysian food, Indian food, Mexican food, Brazilian food, even some Italian food to prove I’m actually a European. (I’ve been told I have an Asian mouth and I really do think fermented tofu seems less icky than blue cheese…)

The lemurs? Usually they’re the human and feline family members who demand food on a daily basis. Sometimes they’re friends who might get a teensy bit bored with my culinary obsessions but are generally happy to be lab rats. Perhaps you, dear reader, will join my delightful lemur audience, skipping across the jungle floor and searching for tasty morsels.
