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.

Thank you and eat well,
Ben & Iris
