Doris is a food and wine afficionado who is so passionate about food that she spent a year learning French culinary skills at Le Cordon Bleu, while completing a 6-week internship in a bistro in Paris and in the only Scandinavian restaurant in Hong Kong before graduation. She is also an advance-level wine professional, with a Level 3 Award in Wine and Spirits from WSET London. Since 2014, Doris has been a columnist with the leading financial daily in her birthplace, Hong Kong Economic Journal, sharing her insights on food, wine, travel, and culture. Multiculturalism is a subject that continues to intrigue and captivate her, ever since her student days at the University of Chicago where she obtained a Master of Liberal Arts. A self-appointed global nomad, Doris has published several books on culture and local history, and contributed personal essays to English-language writing anthologies.
Doris holds a CELTA (Certificate of English Language Teaching to Adults) of Cambridge University, UK and is a regular translator and transcriber for research companies and publishers in Australasia.
