Naming and defining my cooking style turned out to be more difficult than I thought it would be. So following my modus operandi in other areas, I asked for help. I put the call out to my family and friends, and their responses surprised and humbled me.
As you see from the name of my blog, I settled on Exotic Meets Comfort Food. Thank you to my wonderful niece, Kim, who described my cooking as drawing influences from different countries and cultures, yet always ends up feeling like the comfort food mom made.
(All my relatives are wonderful, by the way.)
I'll post some of the other takes on my style tomorrow.
