About

This blog is a reflection on food, marriage & life.

When we started dating over 10 years ago, Ben was a picky eater. Iris made her own version of ma po tofu which involved pan-fried egg tofu. Ben loved the shrimp and pork sauce, but didn’t touch the tofu. After a mild scolding, Iris laid out the ground rules for our relationship: “Food is very important.” followed by “If you want to keep dating me, you’re going to need to learn to eat different foods.”

That was the beginning of a long food odyssey that continues to this day, and in many ways food continues to define our marriage. A good meal can turn a tough day into a wonderful evening, and if dinner is a bit late because Ben’s running late getting home, well… at least we have a decent couch to sleep on. This blog is an invitation to join us on our journey as we travel the world and discover good food: cheap eats, iconic meals, great recipes… oh, and ice cream. We definitely like ice cream.

Read on, enjoy the blog, and help us get going by sharing our URL, or any posts that you find interesting.

Thank you and eat well,

Ben & Iris
