DiepLicious Blogging

I have finally decided to start a blog about food, recipes and  some favorite advice on health and kitchen tools. Some of my friends have asked me about my recipes, and you will find them here in my blog.

I get my inspiration from friends and family who cook for me, but also from great restaurant dishes.

I am not a follow-the-recipe type of person, partly because I am too lazy to measure. I also I think that everybody has different preferences and it is just a matter of adjusting spices and herbs for what you like. I tend to make my recipes a bit spicier than required.
My dishes are usually made with few ingredients and what I have in my refrigerator, although I do tend to have my refrigerator full of food so it makes it a lot easier to be creative.

I hope you will follow me on my blog and try out some of my dishes. Feel free to send me your favorite recipe.

I LOVE FOOD and better yet I LOVE TO COOK.

I can thank my Vietnamese roots. Vietnamese people use a great amount of time cooking and eating, traits which they have learned from their families. Everyone seems to know how to cook, and they are adept at picking fresh and quality foods from the market. Food is a priority in Vietnam – if you eat well, you live well.

I was born in Denmark, and in my mind I am a true Dane. Danish people cook a lot as well, but they prefer to spend less time in the kitchen and more time at the table. I consider myself Vietnamese from a culinary standpoint and Danish from a cultural standpoint (and I live in New York, which is a Mecca for foodies).

My mum is a great cook, she taught me how to chop vegetables and how to just randomly throw things together and somehow get an awesome meal. She makes cooking seem like art, and she is my inspiration for DiepLicious cooking.

My husband loves food as well and he has a great appetite. Cooking for him is a real joy. He has a great interest in everything that concerns health, and loves to point out specific foods and why they are good for you to eat. I will share his knowledge with you. He makes my cooking more challenging, but also a lot healthier.

I offer you one Golden Rule: to enjoy food fully, always taste the food even if you don’t like it. For me it takes a couple of tries to get to know the real flavor.
