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 Magazine 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.
Michelle is a big fan of trashy reality TV shows, and was once blacklisted from call-in radio contests because she won too often.
