Welcome to join the culinary adventure of an Eastern girl in the Western World! This is a food and photography blog. My name is Qin. It was almost fifteen years ago since I set foot on the ground of Europe. Since then I never stopped either of my passions: good food and photography. Being back in Germany again after two years living in Norway, I am having some exciting projects for my future life here. This blog is a part of it. It should be a place for me to document my cooking experiments. Further more, it should give me the chance to get direct feedback from my readers. I chose “East meets West” as the main direction for my culinary creation, because I got the fantastic chance to get to know the tastes from both side of the world quite well, through my first years living in China and now in Europe.

I do believe the Eastern and Western ingredients and flavors can be combined very harmoniously, and the new interpretation of classics of different countries can also be very exciting! There are no borders for my cooking creativity! This is the story behind the name of my blog.

I hope you will enjoy reading my blog and have fun with trying my recipes. I will be more than happy to get feedback from you! Please contact me via qinskitchen(at)gmail.com and find me on facebook (qinskitchen).

Welcome to my culinary world between East and West! 🙂

      Dear Maddie, thank you so much for the nomination and I am so happy to know you like my blog. I feel really flattered. Right now I am working on my first cook book project. That’s why I haven’t updated my english blog for quite long time. I will be back soon after finishing the book project in one or two months. Then I hope to share more great recipes with you. 🙂

      Hi Manoj, thanks for stopping by. I am more than happy to meet another “soul mate” for spicy food. 😉 I guess, that is one of the biggest reason for me for having this blog. Looking forward to reading more about your spicy food experience on your blog. Have a nice day!
      Cheers, Qin
