New podcast – Alexandra Carroll (Alex Craig), New York and Paris

They’re two of the dining capitals of the world and they’re explored (and beautifully photographed) by Alexandra Carroll in her books, New York: An Inspired Wander Through Manhattan and the Brooklyn Boroughs and Paris: An Inspired Wander Through the City of Lights. So it’s no surprise that we talk about memorable bagels and croissants in […]

Highlights of Paris

Highlights of Paris

If I had any control over clockwork, I’d rewind my life to the five times I’ve been to Paris or hit hyperspeed to some future trip where I’m there again. Even hearing the name of the French capital sparks an express trip in my head – a memory carousel of patisserie windows, park strolls, hours […]

The best

Like most ordinary diners, I haven’t been to many restaurants in the world’s top 100. I always like reading the list though – in the same way you might enjoy reading a catalogue of beautiful art you can’t afford. I also like how it’s a great chance to trade front-row stories with people who have […]

Sweet relief

Yep, this is a guilt post. (I’m hopeless, I know …) I wanted to sort the traffic jam in my head into something coherent and bloggable but, with a case of start-of-week tireds, that seems unlikely … So here is some eye candy. It’s a box of sugar – literally. My very kind friends Tabitha […]

Kick Out The Jams

Kick Out The Jams

It was knives out on Saturday morning when I had friends over for Kick Out The Jams 2008. The name sounds like an outdoor festival dedicated to anthemic guitar-shredding, but really it was an excuse to grill some bread and slather on the fruity spreads and weird condiments that I bought overseas. (How punk, I […]

On holiday

On holiday

Right now, it’s looking a bit sad on the blog front because I’m on holiday (and struggling with this German keyboard!). There will be LOTS to write about once I’m back though – so far, I’ve had everything from laksa pesto in Singapore to macaroons snatched off the baker’s tray in Paris, and the traditional […]

Well-travelled food

Travel always triggers a tripwire of startling experiences. When you’re not lucky enough to be away, it’s still great to be treated to the animated anecdotes of a passport-wielding friend. Recently, my friend Tabitha came back from a North American trek with presents and many a good food memory in tow. I was presented with […]

About

Hi, I'm Lee Tran Lam. When not blogging with my mouth full, I'm usually writing, presenting Local Fidelity on FBi radio, making zines, producing podcasts or continually breaking promises about how I really am gonna get through my book pile one day.

All the good pictures on this blog are by photography ace (and patient boyfriend), Will Reichelt, (all the dodgy ones can be credited to me)!

The lovely banner is by friend and ultra-talented illustrator Grace Lee.

This site redesign was made possible by the next-level generosity and expertise of Daniel Boud, whose code-tinkering ways are only outranked by his seriously inspired way with a camera.

You can read more about my co-conspirators here.

This is a blog I do for pure fun and zero influence – there's no sponsorship, sneaky advertorial or advertising. I pay for all the food mentioned, 'cos it seems the ethical thing to do.
