Hi you all!
My name is Tam Nguyen (my full Vietnamese name is Nguyễn Lê Phương Tâm) and I’m currently a Chemistry PhD student at Arizona State University. I live far from home for my study so I constantly miss Vietnamese food. Even though there are a lot of restaurants selling my home country’s food but the flavor is not the same. There are few restaurants but, you know, PhD students cannot eat out at those restaurants everyday, so I chose to recreate them myself… within my budget. I’m happy to share those savory and modified recipes, all the resources that help me get better at cooking as well as my food experience at local restaurants. This blog will be where I can store all of these as memories (and leave space for new photos in my Dropbox as well as my phone, haha!).
A little side note on my blog’s name: my current research is involved with Titanium and its related compounds, the number 22 represent the Z number of Ti in the periodic table, so I think Titanium 22 would represent my work and how nerdy I am!
Glad to know you all and thank you so much for support to my little corner!
