She quit her Silicon Valley job in 2005 to pursue a career in food: the writing, reporting, and basically anything interesting thereof that comes her way. Her recipes, writings, and photographs have since appeared in the New York Times, Food & Wine magazine, Bon Appétit magazine. She's also moonlighted as a judge on Iron Chef America. Chez Pim chronicles her globetrotting adventures –and misadventures- in the world of all things edible, from vibrant street-side fares in Asia to the refined world of Three Michelin Star restaurants in Europe. Pim also cooks a mean pot of curry. Her first book, The Foodie Handbook: The (Almost) Definitive Guide to Gastronomy, was released in 2009.
