Hi, I am the Eating Monster, also known as Vee, and this wordpress site is dedicated to all the food, whether homemade or eating out. I am from Taiwan but I am currently studying in Pittsburgh. I have come to love different types of cuisine and appreciate non-Asian food as well as my love for Taiwanese food. If I had to list off my favorite cuisines, I would probably go for French first, then Taiwanese, Japanese, and then possibly American. I like to try new restaurants, new flavors, and new foods because these are experiences that I cannot have in Taiwan. I love being surrounded by the multicultural cuisines that the US has to offer, and I hope travel to many different places to actually taste different cuisines from their home countries one day.
As much as I love food, I do not like cooking. Perhaps it is because I spend much of my time cooking when I’m hungry, but it is something I do out of necessity rather than desire. Also, I am usually on a diet about 80% of my time/life, so I’m not into cooking extravagant foods either. If I’m going to cook, its going to be healthy and quick.
The thing that I have come to love, though, is baking. I love sugar, I love butter, and I love cream, and I love all of it coming together in my baked creations. I am not a fan of super easy recipes, however, so rarely would you see me make a cookie or a quick bread or any of that. I like to spend my time beating egg whites, or kneading bread, or assembling pastries in general. I find it very relaxing and rewarding, especially when people like what I bake.
