Her recipes tend to be whimsical and playful with many nods to her Vietnamese-American heritage. With a career rooted in her love of eating that started off in a small college town in eastern Washington working as a dishwasher, to more than a decade in New York working as a food stylist on the set of fan-favorite shows such as Iron Chef America and Sandwich King, Susan is forever grateful that she gets to play with food as her job.
