Welcome to Follow Me Foodie! I’m Mijune [mē-june (like the month I was born in)] – the founder and writer of FollowMeFoodie.com. I’m a doe-eyed Foodie in the City with an infectious excitement and passion for food. That’s why I started this. I wanted a public space to share, interact, learn and celebrate all that is food.
I’m born and raised in Vancouver, BC, but have always let my taste buds guide me across the world and even so far as to dictate my work and life. I am a food and travel writer, culinary enthusiast, cook, published author, public speaker, social media director and honourary media judge for BC Chefs’ Association. I am also a weekly food columnist for WE Vancouver with my own column called “Follow Me Foodie”.
I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to travel and explore this world of food and I only hope to share my experiences with you. I am inspired by the culinary scene and hope to deliver the best in local and global gastronomy. Foodie or not, I invite you to Follow Me Foodie!
