Cookbook deal announcement!

Excited news to share with ya all!

Yessssss! I am publishing a cookbook. For real.

After months of negotiation and lots of headache, I am happy to announce that I will be writing a baking book with my partner in crime, Chi Anh from Door To My Kitchen.

This is a dream collaboration between two girls, living thousand miles apart. We share the same hometown, same first name, similar interests in food and all pretty things. Yet, we have never actually met! And now we are writing a cookbook together. CRAZY? Yes, I guess it’s the essential element that brings us together.

A bit about Chi Anh. She’s an amazing modern Viet girl, who has quit her corporate job to open her dream kitchenware and studio in Hanoi, Vietnam. The store, Kitchen Art, features a lot of restaurant grade kitchenware and a lovely kitchen studio overlooking West Lake. It is all about promoting the art of cooking as a lifestyle choice and loving it.

Our cookbook is all about baking, with a touch of Asian inspirations. We are crazy about Western cakes and pastries, but also love Asian desserts that we grew up with. Combining these two interests have been great fun with amazing results. It involves a lot of research, experiments and failures, but fingers crossed we will get there.

Our book is going to be published by Page One Group, based in Singapore. There will be two versions of the book, English and Vietnamese. It is absolutely amazing that the publisher understands our missions and passion. Our editors, Min Kok and Inez have been greatly supportive!

There are A LOT of things left for us to do, it’s overwhelming. I and Chi Anh will document our journey to write this book on our blogs. Hopefully everything will be ready in no time! Please support us in this new journey in food!
