Hi, I’m Julia! I’m the recipe developer, photographer, and writer behind this food blog. I currently live in Boston, but am originally from southern California.
Savory Tooth is a food blog that is all about tasty savory meals, and my dishes often have bold and spicy flavors. I strive to use healthier ingredients and I avoid overly processed ingredients as much as possible. I also try to keep my recipes straightforward and simple with short prep times. Many of my recipes are vegetarian/vegan friendly.
The name of this blog is a play on the phrase “sweet tooth,” since I love creating easy recipes with bold flavors that satisfy my savory tooth. Sweet is good too, but I’m usually craving savory much more often. When I do make the occasional dessert, I use as little sugar as possible.
Three things that have influenced my cooking:
- I’ve lived all over the US, spending years living on the East Coast, Midwest, West Coast, and a stint in Hawaii, as well as time spent on international trips. My travel experiences have influenced my food preferences the most. As a result, I love merging cuisines.
- I’m of Asian and Polynesian (Pacific Islander) ancestry, and growing up I ate a lot of ethnic food as my parents often cooked traditional Asian dishes.
- I love to garden year-round. My dishes often contain vegetables from my garden like ripe jalapeños and freshly harvested herbs. I am also inspired by seasonal produce at the market.
