If music is the food of love, what is the love of food?
Chinese people first ask if you're full, before anything else. It is equivalent of saying "how are you?"
I tell my friends that I'm a food hacker. I try to suss out the ingredients and then imitate the result. To cook the best food, I need to eat at the best restaurants.
Some of the best food are served in some of the worst environments. For instance, I had a simple Thai meal in an alleyway in Bangkok. Beneath my bench was a hungry dog. For me, it was the most authentic sticky rice, Som Tom papaya salad, and stir fried pork with fresh sweet basil and chilli.
