About Michelle Tam
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 Webby award-winning iPhone® & iPad® app by that name. In 2012, Saveur Magazine recognized Michelle's site as the world's Best Special Diets Food Blog.
Michelle is the working mom and food nerd behind Nom Nom Paleo's recipes and personality. Her obsessions include dark chocolate, trashy reality television shows, and miniature toy food from Japan. Michelle has a degree in nutrition and food science from the University of California at Berkeley, and earned her doctorate in pharmacy from the University of California at San Francisco. For over a dozen years, she worked the graveyard shift at Stanford Hospital and Clinics as a night pharmacist.
Michelle, Henry, and their sons Owen and Oliver currently split their time between Palo Alto, California and Portland, Oregon.
