Welcome to Rice & Kai!
I am an English teacher who loves to cook (and eat!). I was originally born in Malaysia but have lived in Auckland, New Zealand for most of my life. I am married and have a gorgeous little baby girl, as well as a big grey cat who brings home dead mice, burnt toast and fried chicken. I also come from a rather large family and am the middle child of five children, so I’m used to meal times being rather chaotic but fun.
This blog is all about recipes, food ideas and places to eat at that I want to share. I love to try new ingredients, different recipes and cuisines, and I also love to celebrate those who take the time to cook good food at home. Most of what you see on this blog is cooked by me and hubby takes the (great) photos before we tuck in!
I hope that this blog challenges you to try some new things and also gives you a few good ideas in a uniquely Kiwi way. Enjoy your rice and kai!
