About Me

I am the proud and brown mama of two young boys, raising them with a loving partner in Washington DC. My day job focuses on equity in public policy, specifically at colleges and universities. My evenings and weekends, however, are spent poring through cookbooks, roaming the aisles of craft stores, finding the perfect cardigan, and making cheeseboards for friends and family.

Gifting to all my nieces and nephews. Beautifully designed and chock full of information. Love that this represents an authentic experience and is pan-India. I can see kids getting excited to see their favorite foods. I can also see reluctant eaters be encouraged to try new foods.

This is such a wonderful book! My daughter loves it. The pictures are beautiful, and it shares such a beautiful journey of Indian food. I can’t wait to see what Julie does next.

We love this book! The illustrations are beautiful and the information is concisely presented in a way that’s engaging for both adults and children! Please make a very Asian guide to Chinese food!
