Why I write about food

Hello dear reader,

My name is Zaira Asis, I go by Zai, and I write about food and the world we live in. I’m constantly inspired about food - the making, cooking, buying, and eating. The challenges. The warmth. The creativity. The political act.

I was born in Argentina, grew up in Brazil and currently live in San Francisco, California. Being from everywhere has helped me understand that food is a permanent interpretation of life - it helps us sense and make sense of our surroundings.

I’m thrilled to start sharing my food chronicles with you, but have to admit, I’m unsure about exactly what I will tell you. But I promise you honesty and humor.

Thank you for being here.
