I often send this bio to editors when they publish my articles:

I started wedesserts.com because most people love desserts, sugary treats, and pastries. Desserts are way far more appealing, photogenic, and crowd-pleasing compared to the savory siblings. It seems that they have plenty of friends!

Do you like desserts a lot? How many do you eat daily?

I am not really a sweet tooth. In fact, I like savory snacks more than sweet treats and cakes. I can easily trade off a muffin for a bag of salt & vinegar potato chips. Having said that, I made my first chocolate “salami” at the age of 8! Somehow, desserts seemed easier to make with the eyes of a child than big, intimidating dishes. I continued making sweet treats throughout my teenage years. During my early adult life, I gave up cooking as I enjoyed food in the premises of restaurants, cafes, and bars. I occasionally went back in the kitchen to test something “interesting” or just to produce the mundane dish.

If you had to pick one dessert, what would it be?

Chocolate mousse. Smooth and velvety. The French style.

What’s your favorite cuisine for desserts?

French. Asian.

I traveled in nearly 50 countries where I had the chance to experience local foods and dishes. I wrote about food for several publications from CNN.com to Huffingtonpost.com. I wrote about the cruffin in Australia and the Mango festival in Miami. The treats in Nepal to the trends during the Fancy Food Festival and street food in Singapore’s Hawker centers.
