Michelle Tam and Henry Fong are the James Beard Award nominated creators of Nom Nom Paleo, the critically acclaimed website and award-winning cooking app. Their first two cookbooks, Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans and Ready or Not! were both New York Times bestsellers.
Dubbed “the Martha Stewart of Paleo” by the New York Times and CBS News, Michelle is the food nerd behind Nom Nom Paleo’s recipes and personality. She has a degree in nutrition and food science from the University of California, Berkeley, and earned her doctorate in pharmacy from the University of California, San Francisco. For over a dozen years, she worked the graveyard shift at Stanford Hospital and Clinics as a night pharmacist.
Henry is a lawyer by day but moonlights as the photographer, illustrator, and designer of the Nom Nom Paleo cookbooks, blog, and app. Henry is a graduate of the University of California, Berkeley, and Yale Law School.
Michelle, Henry, and their sons Owen and Oliver split their time between Palo Alto, California, and Portland, Oregon.
