Eating, Asian-style

Asians love food. Well, most people love food, but Asians seem to be obsessed by it.

Growing up in a Chinese family in Australia, having pizza for dinner was a special occasion for us. About once a month, when my parents decided to treat us, we would order two large pizzas from the Pizza Inn up the road.

It’s a new year and there is a full year of glorious food ahead of us. We may have ended the past year with a few weeks of holiday feasting and more cake and pudding than is sensible, but it’s time to wipe that slate clean and think of the all the upcoming eating and … Continue reading
