MiMi Aye is the British Burmese writer of meemalee.com and author of NOODLE! 100 Great Recipes (Absolute Press). She is also the founder and host of Burmese Food and Beyond, a supperclub and online community which celebrates Burmese food and culture. Recommended by Lonely Planet, the Times, the Mail on Sunday and Time Out, she has been interviewed on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour and The Food Programme, as well as by the Telegraph and METRO. Her recipes have appeared in the Guardian and the Evening Standard amongst other publications and on Channel 4 Food to accompany Gordon Ramsay’s TV show “Gordon’s Great Escapes”. MiMi was born at the English seaside, but brought up with Burmese sensibilities. Having read Law at Cambridge, she qualified as a solicitor at a City law firm before going into publishing. An obsession with food led to MiMi starting meemalee.com where she shares her culinary thoughts, recipes and reviews. Due to her eloquent and often wry turn of phrase, her blog is popular worldwide, although particularly in the Netherlands for reasons she has never been able to fathom. MiMi lives in Kent with her husband, her daughter, and a collection of gashapon.
