28 Cooks recently asked the following:

“Have you ever visited a food blog, day after day, and stopped and wondered what the chef behind the magic looks like? I often wander through my Blogroll and wonder who’s on the other side of the computer”.

That’s where this “Behind The Apron” round-up comes in. Starting January 5th and ending January 31st, post a picture of yourself on your blog, revealing as much (tastefully, of course) or as little as you want. Introduce yourself, show us your family, do whatever you want.

Send a link to your post to 28cooks AT gmail DOT com, and I will round them all up, posting the final tally on February 4th. Please make sure you place a link to this post in your entry. You can also feel free to snag the handy button up at the top.

Ok, so here’s my contribution to “Behind The Apron”. As my blog says, I’m a Canadian living in Hong Kong and now entering my 9th year in Asia! This city has such a buzz. Over the past 20 years, my cooking styles have changed/improved and being in Asia has had a positive affect on how I cook. I love the way Asian spices and herbs add oomph to a dish and before coming out here I didn’t know what turmeric, coriander, tamarind, fish sauce etc. was nor how it was used. My family are my best food critics as they don’t hold back on their comments. Although I am relatively new to this internet phenomenon, I enjoy being involved in the blogging world and there’s satisfaction when people give me feedback on what I’ve just posted. Cheers!
