Linda is a food writer and photographer who hails from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is a Nyonya Peranakan with family roots from Taiping. She grew up with a mixture of Peranakan and Cantonese food at home and learnt some of her favorite recipes first hand from her mother, grandmother and aunts. Later on, she travelled the world and came into contact with Japanese and Western cuisines that she enjoys cooking. However her culinary heart will always be Malaysian Chinese with a lot of spices!
