Three things you should know about me - I'm Burmese, I'm a Japanophile, and I love pork.
My first book NOODLE! - 100 Great Recipes (Absolute Press) is out now and can be found in larger bookshops such as WH Smith, Waterstones, Foyles and also online at all those stores, as well as on Amazon, and the Guardian Bookshop. Randomly, it's even available on eBay.
As for this blog, I started in February 2009 to spread the word about my beloved Burma and Burmese food, and because MasterChef was winding me up.
You'll also find restaurant reviews, Burmese recipes (and other cuisines) as well as the occasional product review.
I am available for freelance commissions - for more information, please contact my agent Juliet Pickering at Blake Friedmann.
Oh, and my name is MiMi (two big Ms).
"Meemalee" is the nickname my best friend at college gave me. I have no idea why. It's pronounced mee-muh-lee.

You can email me here. Be nice.
