Welcome to my kitchen!
My name is Thanh and I love food, cooking and photography.
I am an Australian-born Vietnamese, married to a Frenchman and living in Switzerland. By day, I work full-time in the corporate world. And the rest of the time, you can find me in the kitchen, a place I escape to where I can unwind and relax.
I spend a fair amount of time on planes, travelling to different destinations whether for work, to visit family members across the globe or for little getaways. While I probably travel more often than I would like, I am always grateful for the opportunity to visit new places and to meet new people, eating different foods along the way and creating special taste memories here and there.
This blog will be devoted to reviewing recipes, most notably from my vast (and growing!) collection of cookbooks. And of course, it will also be a place for me to do some show and tell through my food photography, a skill which I hope to fine-tune with each post. I have been saturating my friends and family with my food photos over the past few years that perhaps it is only fair on them to start widening the circle a bit!
The phrase, “eat, little bird”, was discovered a few years ago by my husband on a Hallmark greeting card which he sent to his brother as a comic (but brotherly) gesture. Since that time, the phrase has been thrown back and forth between them and has somewhat developed into (teasing) words of endearment at the dining table to encourage others to eat.
As you may have noticed, I also love illustrations and have been a fan of Megan Hess ever since I first bought her book, “What Friends Are For”, many years ago in a bookstore in Brisbane, Australia (where I grew up). I am super-thrilled that she agreed to create some illustrations for my website and I hope you love them as much as I do!
