Tram Nguyen

Hello! I’m a writer and illustrator based out of Chicago, Illinois.

My work has been featured in: Adobe’s 99U, Bon Appetit, Cherry Bombe, Elle, Food & Wine, The Guardian, Kiplinger, Lucky Peach, Nylon, Saveur, Serious Eats, Travel + Leisure, The Washington Post, and more.

I co-wrote and illustrated a food memoir, Pen & Palate: Mastering the Art of Adulthood, with Recipes (Grand Central Life & Style).

You know that long rambling bit at the top of recipe blogs that everyone scrolls past? My book that is just that part, stretched across roughly 80,000 words.

Recognition and Awards: American Illustration 35, 3x3 International Illustration Competition, Saveur BFBA Editor’s Choice for Best Writing, Bucktown Apple Pie Contest (16th place)
