Occupation: Business Master's Degree student at the world's northernmost university Passions: Cooking, baking, language, business Fave cookbooks: The Best Recipe, Baker's Apprentice, Cookwise Pet peeves: Lack of fresh ingredients and healthy alternatives in the far north, people not rinsing out or soaking things they leave in the sink, perfectly good food being thrown away Fave dishes to make: anything yummy and nutritious, be it quick and easy or time-consuming and labor-intensive. Famous for: Cali - Hamburger Nights, salsa, creme caramel (flan) Japan - mabo tofu, chinjaoroosu, chicken mushroom fried rice Norway - puddings, breads, "Hot Pockets" Fave restaurants: Cali - Shinsengumi Ramen, Outback Steakhouse, CPK Japan - 105 yen sushi bars, the red ramen shop in Beppu Norway - none... Norwegians sadly don't seem to take advantage of the fresh seafood, berries, and other such foods native to the land. Dining out = disappointing and sodium-laden
