Many years of travel and working in the service industry led me to Santa Fe, where I found my home in 1990. I find inspiration in hiking + camping and in my yoga practice; these help me cultivate groundedness and presence. Feeding my family and friends continues the legacies of my grandmother and mother, and carries them on to my daughter, Lila. It also connects me to the nourishing force of the Divine Mother and the ways we ALL can serve each other with love and compassion.

From Soma:

Shaker Hymn

I will bow and be simple.
I will bow and be free.
I will bow and be humble.
Yea, bow like the willow tree.

 

My life changed when I moved to Santa Fe from Singapore and became a mother. I became aware of how my Chinese culture valued food preparation as emotional engagement and communication. I take great joy in feeding my son and husband—and growing much of the food I cook. Early one morning as I watered my garden’s zucchini and marveled at the light on its leaves, I felt deep fulfillment in knowing where this plant came from and whom it would nourish; and I realized I wanted to feed people healthy food.
