“Really? White people don’t usually order that…” I’ve heard this a lot in restaurants. I’ve been told I have an Asian mouth. I crave spice and bright flavours in complex layers. I hate bland food and my idea of comfort food is bánh hòi, yam som o or xnipec. But I grew up in Scotland and don’t have a Vietnamese, Thai or Mexican grandmother to teach me to cook. What to do? This blog recounts my attempts to learn about the cuisines that inspire me.
