We happily announce Pim Techamuanvivit of Chez Pim, as a featured speaker at IFBC New Orleans! Pim will speak during the Writing about Food and Culture and Travel Writing sessions!
Pim grew up in Bangkok, was shipped off to study in other places, and somehow found herself living and loving it in the San Francisco Bay Area. 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, and more.
She’s also moonlighted as a judge on Iron Chef America, been profiled on Gourmet’s Diary of a Foodie, Food(ography), and cooked Pad Thai on the Martha Stewart Show, for Martha, natch.
Chez Pim chronicles her globetrotting adventures –and misadventures- in the world of all things edible, from her kitchen in Northern California, to the vibrant street-side fares in Asia and the refined world of Three Michelin Star restaurants, on her blog, Chez Pim. Pim also cooks a mean pot of curry.
