Kathleen Kiebler

Hi there, I’m Kathleen. I am a Hapa (a person of mixed ethnic heritage) who grew up in a family that loves to cook and loves to eat! My food is a reflection of me and I am a reflection of my food. My mixed background has given me multiple perspectives throughout my life. Those perspectives have left me open to not just exploring the beauty of my own cultural backgrounds, but others as well – and at the heart and soul of them, is food. Hapa Nom Nom creates a culinary environment where foods from multiple cultures are integrated into recipes that can be shared and enjoyed by everyone.
