New Beginnings: Mechanic and Cook

Hi everyone it's been a while since my last post and in good reason...I've made a few tweaks to the blog to freshen things up and wait till you hear where I've been!

One day in August '13 my father told us that we're moving to Yangon. T and I looked at each other and hoped we knew someone from there. When I finished college I thought maybe I'll live in Singapore or Jakarta...not once had I thought Yangon was an option. But hey, we're young and quite adventurous so why not. Myanmar lifted its sanctions not too long ago and it's dubbed "the last frontier" so you can imagine the opportunities and possibilities. To be absolutely honest, I had no idea what I was in for, what the living conditions were like, people, culture, amenities...anything! T and I went in blind but now 6 months later we're nearly calling Yangon home. 

 I'm starting this post to mark a semi-new blog. Like ferme a la table, I will still be featuring my food and recipes but now with more travel and adventure. I call us mechanic and cook, he's a mechanic from Boston and I'm a chef from Jakarta. We met at a lodge in Lake Placid New York and now living in Yangon, Myanmar. Hope you'll join us in our adventures!
