Spicy Sesame Zoodles with Crispy Tofu

My life truly revolves around food.

Not only do I work in the food industry,  in my spare time I also blog about food, I cook (and bake) as a hobby, I photograph food when I eat out and I even like to spend my evenings sitting watching food documentaries and television shows. Don’t worry, I watch other things too, but foodie shows are pretty awesome I must say!

A couple of years ago, my friend got me hooked on a Chinese series by the name ‘A Bite of China’ which explores the history and culture of food in various different locations within China.
