About The High Heel Gourmet
Some of my friends call me globetrotter, photographer, gourmet investigator, culinary art obsessor, foodie, kitchenista, macaronista, or other cool names that I have to look up in the dictionary…You can call me whatever you like; it doesn’t matter to me…I just like to cook, bake, eat, read, travel, take pictures and other things that I don’t know about it yet…
I’m a Thai born and bred, grew up in Bangkok but rebelled myself out of the country some decades ago and reside in beautiful Manhattan Beach, California now.
Of Course “The High Heel Gourmet” is an owner of “The High Heel Gourmet”, a custom confectionary design, just recently found on the 2/2/2012. I used to be a personal chef who cook a special dinner at your home (not the every day cook). My specialty is Thai cooking but I cook many other different cuisines as well. However, I love small pretty little things, so I do custom design French macarons and chocolate bon bons for special occasions. Also several courses macarons tasting which starting from appetizer bite size macarons, an arrey of savory sweet macarons then finish with desserts macarons. The High Heel Gourmet also consults for recipe and menu developing when not traveling to sample delicious foods all around the world
I love to cook and entertain at my house and sometimes the guests will ask for the recipes. So I put recipes up with pictures on Facebook but that didn’t go well. You know, I have to accept their friend requests, then point them to the right album. And of course they still can’t find it! Here I am, trying a new platform to get my recipes out there to my friends and to you too.
I also travel and eat out a lot. So this blog will serve as a true Asian-style dining table: I share everything I like. If you see restaurants show up here those are the ones I like. I won’t critique foods because I don’t like to do so. You go there yourself and taste the food for your own experience.
Thanks to my wonderful husband who as my editor makes my Thinglish sound closer to English…
By the way, “The High Heel Gourmet” is really cook in high heels. I’m not making any fashion statement here. I’ve struggled all my life to put 5 feet, or 150 cm, as my height somewhere officially. I finally successfully have it on my CA driver’s license BUT that didn’t really make me taller, you know. So I do NEED my heels in the kitchen–not stilettos but sensible platforms. However “The High Heel Gourmet” who’s glamorously traveling to eat all those yummy foods, never leave home without the heels. This time the sensible heels won’t make it out of the door…Who want to be seen in them?…Fashion statement is needed there. So, if you see someone on the unreasonable platforms or stilettos, standing in line by the famous food trucks or street vendors’ food carts, that might be me.
