Named for Malulee Pinsuvana, author of Cooking Thai Food In American Kitchens, Malulee's Kitchen is a celebration of Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Asian Immigrant food and community funded by the Y. L. Hoi Memorial Award. In providing platform for API creatives of all kinds to tell their food narratives, Malulee's Kitchen seeks to both strengthen AAPI community and highlight our diverse experiences. 

Currently, Malulee's Kitchen produces cooking lessons, recipe cards, zines, print goods, pop-up libraries, and zinefests in collaboration with sites such as R HouseSmithsonian's Freer and Sackler Galleries, and the Walters Art Museum and creators like Sunmi and Dinner on Demand B'more. I love drawing food, so I also produce all the promotional and poster illustrations!!
