Cooking Therapy is a blog curated by Becca, where she combines her personal stories with food and aims to inspire everyday home cooks. Becca's culinary repertoire draws from her Chinese/Vietnamese American background and her upbringing in the vibrant city of Los Angeles. On this platform she writes about a mix of traditional Chinese and Vietnamese recipes passed down from her mother and grandmother, as well as dishes influenced by the diverse communities she has lived in, such as LA and San Francisco. Regardless of the origin, all the food shared on Cooking Therapy is crafted with love. Becca is excited to share her stories and hopes to engage with readers who are willing to share their own experiences.
