When I first met Trang, we didn’t talk about food at all. We were in a housewarming party and we discussed about our jobs because we were both working in the hospitality industry, we discussed about our husbands playing rugby, we discussed about being french and living in Sydney. In short, we had a lot in common, we actually had so much in common that we didn’t get to talk about food… What a pity!
But we had friends in common who kept speaking well of her cuisine and then I discovered she was a food blogger. So we were meant to meet again! and this time we actually talked about food…
Can you introduce yourself?
I am a French girl who moved to Australia 5 years ago. Doing Procurement and Hospitality stuff as a living but enjoy cooking and entertaining friends and family as a hobby!
Since I moved to Australia what amused me the most is this surprise face on people when I tell them that I am actually FRENCH!
How did you start blogging?
I started my blog back in October 2014 – very casually, not very prepared I just opened a WordPress account and started to type in! I knew I wanted to share my food experience and passion but I also wanted people to identify themselves in my everyday life stories. Food is full of excitement especially when there is a story around to share! I would like to post once every week but I found myself to be posting once every 2-3 weeks… 😉
What is your cooking story, what kind of foodie are you?
I am a social foodie, I love cooking – of course for my taste buds – but also I love cooking for my friends, family and future husband 😉 It is so rewarding to see all their faces (and stomachs) so happy thanks to the food I cooked! It is a personal accomplishment to be able to light up someone’s day just by doing what you like the most!
Describe your cooking style in a few words?
I would spend hours and hours cooking. I love recipes where it requires hours of prep and cooking. I know my friends sometimes think I am crazy because I’d spend the week end cooking! I am into Traditional French and Vietnamese but also comfort food and family dinner. Although we are only two of us at home I would always cook for 6 (just in case of…)
What is your favourite restaurant in Sydney?
Very hard Question – however my best dining experience was at Tetsuya’s one of the best restaurant in Sydney. It was a 10 courses lunch with the finest food you can ever imagine eating! Bring me back!
What recipe did you choose to share on Food is all. and why?
It’s a traditional Vietnamese recipe called Bánh xèo that I used to eat a lot when I was living in France! I would often go out with my parents for dinner and lunch and would always order this dish! When I arrived in Sydney, I was still new to the Vietnamese food community and started to learn how to cook Vietnamese food myself – and I started with this one!
