I have lived most of my years in Paris, France, but I have stayed a short period of time in Shanghai before moving to Hong Kong, the city I have chosen to be My Home, 7 years ago. During these years I have done a bit of traveling in Asia, made terrific friends that I call My Family and have developed an addiction to intense workout (crossfit, yoga) that I call My Fix !
Cooking & baking are part of my daily routine and I love it. I started to bake at a young age and never stopped since. I picked up on cooking later as I grew up, watching my mom cook : her influences are mostly from South-East Asia – where she was born and raised. My influences are therefore from her and from French cuisine.
There are countless reasons why I love cooking and baking. To name a few among many : the company of friends over a homemade meal that makes them happy, trying out new recipes to constantly challenge myself, understanding the chemistry in baking and because this hobby makes me happy, obviously ;]
I decided to start this blog to share my favorite recipes and encourage as many people as possible to adopt healthy eating habits with a bit of indulgence. I am health conscious so you will very likely find recipes calling for superfoods and lots of greens (green-juicing has become lately another hobby of mine, yum !).
My other faves (randomly) include :
- Music : I spend most of my time with music in my ears – while working, while commuting, while working out, while cooking. I also play the piano and the drums
- I worship my Kitchenaid stand mixer a.k.a. the best gift I have received yet or My Precious. My oven comes close second.
- Dark chocolate
- Fruits – especially berries and tropical fruits : if I was forced to be anything but an omnitarian, I would probably be a fruitarian
- Surfing : although I haven’t practiced a lot, I had the chance to experience one of the best feelings one can have while surfing a wave – freedom and embracing the power of nature under your feet. I keep telling everyone this is a unique feeling they should all experience at least once
Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to read. Looking forward to your feedback/questions/challenges.
