Hi, I’m Katie Chin and welcome to The Sweet and Sour Chronicles!  I’m a chef, food blogger, cookbook author, spokesperson and YouTuber.

My cookbooks include “Everyday Chinese Cooking” and “300 Best Rice Cooker Recipes,” the award-winning best seller, “Everyday Thai Cooking”  and my newest cookbook, “Everyday Chinese Cookbook: 101 Delicious Recipes from My Mother’s Kitchen” is coming out on April 26th!

I also co-hosted the national PBS cooking series in 2003, “Double Happiness,” with my late mom, the legendary chef Leeann Chin.

I’ve been so lucky to have made appearances on national television including The Today Show, Nightline, Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family Show, as a judge on Iron Chef America and specials for The Food Network and Cooking Channel. I’ve also been featured in Glamour, Family Circle, Cooking Light, Bon Appetit, Self Magazine, Angeleno Magazine, Hampton Magazine, Elle Magazine, Daily Candy, Daily Variety, Real Simple, The Wall Street Journal and The Los Angeles Times.

In 2013, I was a featured celebrity chef at the White House for the annual Easter Egg Roll (Yes, I met Obama and Michelle)!  I recently competed on Food Network’s Cutthroat Kitchen which was a total blast.  I’ll be appearing on another Food Network competition show in the fall so stay tuned…

I am currently a spokesperson for the national restaurant chain, Noodles and Company.  Check out one of my Noodles and Company videos here.

I’m also a mom to seven year-old twins, Dylan and Becca, and stepdaughter, Kyla, who love to help test and try out all of my new recipes.  When I’m not working, I love to throw karaoke dinner parties and collect all things Hello Kitty!
