2010-10-31 12.06.44Hi my name is Kayeon, (pronounced Kei-Yawn) and I am a recent graduate of Architecture. What am I doing writing a blog on food, you say? Well. I love it. Hence the title, I eat and I eat a lot. Usually 3 times a day, sometimes less and sometimes more. Every time that I do eat, I take pride in making sure that it's something juicy, flavourful, succulent, tangy, crispy and very near perfection. 

I love to share my food creations too. Living in Toronto, I used to be able to call up a friend and ask them to dine with me at any hour of the day or night. Even as a student, I was fortunate enough to live in an area with great butchers, producers and fine cheese makers,  so I really ate very well and my friends thanked me for it. People would drop in at 1am and say,  "I'm hungry!" and I would most often have something that I had just made to feed them with. Whether it be pizza (I made that a lot) or spaghetti, soup, stir-fry, risotto, steak, or kimchi stew, I had it on hand and ready to feed.

I love food so much, I did my entire architecture thesis on food! I will probably blog a lengthy description about it later. 

All in all, I want to share my recipes that I have collected in hand written journals in multiple volumes, as dictated by my talented mothers. Yes plural. I have a birth mother (Korean) and my best friend's mom whom I have known since the age of 6, who is my other mother (Peruvian). This makes for an interesting mixed influence on my palate and food adventures. Other recipes I have collected are derived from watching an excessive number of shows on the Food Network, from other blogs, from cookbooks, or just my imagination. I usually put my own personal twist on recipes, and sometimes I stay tried and true to the traditional fare. 

I also love to travel, and although I haven't travelled to many places, I make damn sure that I have done thorough research on the best restaurants to go to. That can be found under "where to eat".

I was based in Vancouver, BC but as of 2011, I am back in Toronto, Ontario. Yeah, I know I live split lives in both places! Regardless… I am ready to share my food experiences with you, and hopefully, you'll like it.
