Contrary to popular belief, Michelle Tam’s Chinese name is not “Nom Nom Paleo.” She is, however, the cheeky food nerd behind the award- winning blog and bestselling iPad app by that name. In 2012, Saveur recognized Michelle’s site as the world’s Best Special Diets Food Blog. When she’s not cooking or writing, Michelle can be found chasing after her two young sons or slinging drugs as a nightshift hospital pharmacist. She earned a nutrition and food science degree from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Doctorate of Pharmacy from the University of California, San Francisco.
Henry Fong is Michelle’s husband and co- conspirator. An attorney by day, he’s responsible for Nom Nom Paleo’s design and photography, which won a 2012 Homies Award from Apart- ment Therapy and The Kitchn for Best Food Photography on a Blog. Henry is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and Yale Law School. “Nom Nom Paleo” is not his Chinese name, either.
