Getting to Know Alisa

Hi!  My name is Alisa.  This blog is all about my love of food.  But there’s so much more to me than just food.

I’m a born and raised Southern California girl.  But my roots are in Thailand.  My parents immigrated to California over 40 years ago from Thailand.  And though I may be a California girl at heart, I am also proud to be Thai, and that conversion of two wildly different cultures and lifestyles influences who I am as a person.

In addition to my love of food, I also have a great passion for travel.  I joke all the time that I work so that I can travel.  To some extent, that’s a very true statement.  My mind is always looking ahead to the next trip, the next journey.  Travel is such an adventure, in seeing different cultures, meeting different people, opening your mind to so many different possibilities.  You can view some of my travel photos on my other blog Ducky’s Travels ‘Round the World.

In many ways, a food journey is just like a travel adventure.  Though, I admittedly am still a very picky food eater, that doesn’t mean that every once in a while a cat can’t change its stripes…

I’m generally never caught without a camera in my bag.  And anytime I come across tasty food, interesting looking food, or when I’m just cooking at home, I always have my camera ready to take some snap shots.  I’ve been trying to find a way to turn the food photos I take into more than just random photos, but rather as a tool for the photos to tell the story of the food, people, or places that make up these shots.  This isn’t a cooking blog, or a travel blog or a recipe blog; but rather a food journey.  Follow me on my journey as I live my life through food…
