Personal Information

Biographical Info:
To predict what you’d become when you grew up, the Chinese have a fortune-telling game where a baby selects three things from a spread of items. She had chosen: a toy oven, a notepad, and a plastic Medieval-looking sword. Ignoring that last item (which suggest she’d grow up to be a knight of some sort), the rest were surprisingly accurate predictions of Amy’s life as a food writer. Nowadays, Amy is a regular contributor to the South China Morning Post and Wall Street Journal amongst other publications. She’s lived abroad in 4 countries, speaks a wide variety of languages and dialects, and has zero food allergies. On her last stop before hitting Hong Kong, Amy lived in New York, where she graduated from Columbia University and trained as a Pastry Chef. She cooks often…really.
