Hello and welcome to Isak’s table! I’m Sandra and this is my creative space where I, with a little help from my friends, will be writing a food, travel and lifestyle journal. My day job is as a designer – and this food blog is my little bit of fun on the side. I am not a chef! Being creative I don’t like to follow recipes; people’s tastes and cooking equipment are so different anyway. Sometimes I plan our meals if there is something new we want to try and often I make something up from the ingredients we have. What we stick by is a non processed, wholesome, good quality healthy diet.

This is our family journey. Exploring through food whether that’s foraging for edible leaves in our neighboring woods, cooking up what we can grow in our own garden or experimenting with exotic food brought back from a trip. When we can’t travel physically we travel through food, explore new dishes or ways of cooking. After all, we all have to eat and what better way than to make it fun and tasty and to share it with friends?

After living in the UK for 14 years, I have now relocated with my family to Hong Kong. I grew up in Sweden and have spend the last 20 years living, travelling and working in other countries; 49 to be exact. I lived in Southern Europe, Scandinavia, Latin America, North America and the West Indies before settling in the UK to set up my design business and to have children. Since the birth of our three boys they too have become adventurous travellers with countries like Belize, Guatemala, Mexico, Tanzania, Mongolia, Panama, Australia, Philippines, Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakstan, Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam under their belt. Now, being based in Hong Kong my persona, and our aim as a family is to use HK as a hub for eating and travelling our way through Asia.

Follow our journey!
