Melissa is also a blogger at Dash of East. Melissa has always been a fan of Asian food and culture. Blame it on her parents who owned a Chinese restaurant or the countless kung fu movies that she watched as a child. Okay, not exactly. She wasn’t always a fan of Asian culture. Melissa was one of maybe three Asian kids growing up in Southwest Virginia. It was rough being different in a rural Appalachia. Can you imagine?
Now, almost 15 years later, Melissa has come to adore her heritage and Asian culture. In this gal’s humble opinion, you can’t find tastier (and healthier) food than in Asian cuisine. And where are you going to find something that so deftly combines grace and athleticism than martial arts? At Dash of East, they explore tasty recipes, martial art fitness benefits, healthy living and community events among many, many other things. They also produce and coordinate cooking demos, restaurant events and Asian market tours. Go see Dash of East in action at The Whistle Stop Farmers Market in historic Norcross, Georgia on Tuesday evenings, starting in June!
