about us & contact


“Our most common and momentous encounters with nature occur in the kitchen. The most common way most people in industrialized world encounter nonhuman nature is as food. Eating puts us in relationship with animals, farmers, watersheds, and countless of people and places, most of them far from our home places. Reflecting on consumption, especially of food, opens up new ways of thinking not only about relations to nature but also about relations between values and practices.” – Anna Peterson

About us

Marco and I started a small cooking workshop back in 2012 when we were still living in Hong Kong at the time.  Our purpose was rather straight forward.  We wanted to promote a healthy eating culture and by doing that, we used to invite friends over for dinner.  Neither of us are trained chefs but we both love to cook and eat good food.  Since we are from two different (Chinese and Italian) food cultures, our dishes often resemble a hint of fusion and most of them are vegetarian based recipes.  This is a food journal of what we make and what we eat on a regular basis.  I hope through some of our meals, we can inspire many others to enjoy and pursue a home cooking culture.

Thanks for stopping by.
