Holiday Gift Guide for Foodies who Love Asian Food
Disclosure: This post is not sponsored at all. Just wanted to show off some Asian-owned businesses for your holiday shopping.
Hi everyone! Everyone seems to be getting ready with some holiday shopping, so I figured I’d put together a guide to help you out by featuring some items that foodies who love Asian food would love all together in one place. I initially thought about this because I was trying to figure out how to tell people about my new Jen’s Food Lab sticker line.
Announcing my new sticker line!
Looking for the finishing touch for a holiday gift? Love cute stickers and Asian food? Well, you’re in luck because I just launched my line of Asian food inspired stickers with 2 super cute ones:
1️⃣ Inspired by my Dim Sum Board creation (think dim sum x charcuterie board), this sticker is full of adorable animated dim sum favorites. See if you identify all the emojis in there!
2️⃣ For my next sticker, FOOD, but make it Asian! Showcase your love for food with this sticker with a cute bao and egg tart in place of the Os in FOOD!
Unfortunately, right now, I am only selling these within the United States (but trying to figure out international shipping)
A little bit on the why:
As you may know, I love sharing Asian flavors, fruits, dim sum and bakery traditions that I grew up with to everyone! For example, every year for my Microsoft work anniversary and my birthday, I bring in a huge cake that is always made up of different Asian-inspired flavors, such as my latest one, which was black sesame and persimmon marbled cake with salted egg yolk buttercream frosting.
I figured that I’d introduce these new unfamiliar Asian flavors (persimmon, black sesame, salted egg yolk) in a familiar way (cake!), kind of a reverse fusion. The awesome reactions that colleagues had to my cakes, many who have never even heard of these flavors before, inspired me to work on self-publishing a cookbook as a side project!
While I’m still working on this cookbook that will be full of Asian-inspired recipes and unique flavors, you can support me by buying my stickers!
