Who am I?
A girl who enjoys great food.
Why is this blog called “journeys of a gourmand”?
I think of my experience with food as a journey, in which I explore different cuisines and learn to know what I like.
As for “gourmand”, let me refer to the Oxford English Dictionary:
gourmand |ˈgʊəmənd, ˈgɔː-| noun
• a person who enjoys eating and often eats too much.
• a connoisseur of good food; a gourmet.
I’ll leave it to you to decide which one I am.
Where do I live?
Currently in Shanghai.
Am I a full-time restaurant blogger?
How I wish that were true… But alas, I have a day job 😦
Do I get paid for my reviews?
No, I don’t write paid reviews. I do accept tasting invitations sometimes. My standards for tastings are the same as any other meal, and for those reviews I always put a note at the top.
What camera do I use?
Canon 5D Mark II with a Carl Zeiss Distagon 1.4/35 lens.
