Hi, I’m Angi. I live in San Francisco with my husband Nathan and our black kitty Toro.
I’m obsessed with what people are eating in exotic, faraway places. Show me a dish with a barely-pronounceable name or a recipe with an unheard-of ingredient and I am immediately in love!
I started this blog in 2007 as a sort of 30th-birthday present to myself, as a recipe journal to help me remember dishes I’ve made and liked. Over the years, I started noticing a trend in what I tend to cook and I realized it’s time to admit my addiction. I want to be eating what people are eating far away from here!
Until I get my own private jet, I try to recreate these deliciously time-tested recipes at home and turn my kitchen into a pretend-Thailand (…or pretend-India…or pretend-Mexico…). More often than not, this means improvising substitutions for crazy ingredients and bumbling around techniques I can’t pull off in my little apartment kitchen. It’s always a fun time and I would love to share that with you.
If you get a chance, drop me a note to say hi!
