One of the greatest things about living in a country that has so much diversity is the ability to eat foods from all over the world. Thanks to the internet we have access to culinary ideas from all over the world right at our fingertips. We can search for recipes, order ingredients from different places and learn how to make food thanks to amazing food bloggers that share beautiful blog posts and how-to videos.
Through this site our goal is to celebrate that diversity – so we wanted to highlight some of the best multicultural food bloggers out there.

Joan Chen, a Chinese American actress and film producer and her daughter, Angela Hui, a published writer of poems and short stories, have come together to create delicious dishes based on healthy and simple ways to prepare food. They declare they are “not food experts, nor are we professional cooks, but we are passionate beginners and curious outsiders.” I particularly love the way the talk about recipes and cooking, sharing their experiences and feelings about cooking and food, like this insight: “Cooking is universal; it makes you feel at home wherever you are.” Joan also discusses what her life was like in China and what her journey in America has been like.
