Hi. I'm Isabel Twanmo, also known as Wontwans (ya catching on yet?) 

Wontwans started as an Instagram page in 2017 to showcase my favorite restaurant food finds. I knew I loved to cook, talk about food, and learn about anything related to food, but I was still stuck in the unproductive “foodie” mentality posting any food I ate that looked “instagramable”. When I was laid off from my job back in March 2020 due to the pandemic, many of the restaurants I loved to support closed too or were offering limited take-out options. I started cooking everyday, creating comfort and a means of creativity during a seemingly unstable and unpredictable time.

Today, Wontwans has become so much more than a foodgram. It's a place to record recipes I've enjoyed putting together at home during the pandemic, a motivating space to share my self-taught cooking and amateur food photography journey, and a way to reconnect with my Chinese roots through cooking, ingredient exploration, and technique. 

The recipes and photos I share are all of foods I like to make on a regular basis, some that remind me of home, and some that I just think other people might enjoy learning about too. And I really want to learn about them with you! Please don't hesitate to shoot me a comment, email, or question using the channels below, and make sure to follow @wontwans on Instagram and TikTok for more.
