My grandmother, who I lovingly called Mimi, was a passionate cook! All of her meals were made from scratch, and boy was she one heck of a cook! I wanted to use one of her classic recipes as inspiration for my illustration, and to share her wonderful recipe with everyone!
Zongzi (粽子) is a traditional Chinese rice dish made of glutinous rice stuffed with different fillings and wrapped in bamboo leaves, generally of the species Indocalamus tessellatus, sometimes, with reed leaves, or other large flat leaves. They are cooked by steaming or boiling. In the Western world, they are also known as rice dumplings or sticky rice dumplings.
One of the dishes that reminds me of home is Lumpia Shanghai. It's a Chinese-Filipino fried spring roll that is often served at get-togethers. Ever since I was little, my mom and I would sit around the kitchen table and wrap them together.

A popular Vietnamese dish in my family's culture. Great for cookouts!
Three recipes in one! First make the Mexican adobo, then the roasted tomatillo salsa. Combine with some pork to make delicious Pork Chile Verde. This recipe was inspired by the many versions of this incredible dish that we had during a winter trip to beautiful Colorado.
These noodles are tossed in savory, sweet minced pork and mushroom, Chinese cabbage, beansprouts, beef balls, topped with fried shallots and spring onion. Personally love to add chilli mixture, don't put so much if you cannot stand the heat. Oh, so yummy!
"Pork Steak with Soy Sauce" or "Hmu See-Iw",in Thai, is my favorite food. It is inherited from my grandmom to my mom. It's so easy to make it. It just has 3 steps to cook and use just 3 ingredients to done it. Although, it looks so easy but the taste is very delicious. I suggest to eat "Hmu See-Iw" with boiled rice because you can taste more delicious. Enjoy it :)
‘Tam Rice’, or broken rice, once known as the poor’s rice as the farmers used to collect the fractured rice grains that broke during the milling and sold them for cheap. However, over years, people have become rather fond of this dish and it’s now served as an everyday meal.
The basic Tam Rice includes grilled pork chops, fried egg and vegetable aliments such as pickles, tomatoes and cucumbers.
We also take steamed egg cake (chả trứng)shredded pork with pork skin (bì), meatballs (xíu mại) or braised beef (bò kho) as optional toppings.
At some places, we also fry pork fat with sliced scallions to make a sauce for extra flavor.
