This easy-to-make marbled Meyer lemon matcha cake is a blend of fragrant Meyer lemons and Matcha green tea and would be perfect with coffee or tea. (Jump directly to the recipe for Meyer Lemon and Matcha Green Tea Bundt Cake.)

I’m an odd mix of Asian heritage coupled with Midwest roots and California cuisine sensibilities. I grew up in St. Louis where my Taiwanese mom cooked every meal for us, often something Asian inspired. My Thanksgiving dinner was a mix of traditional Midwest American dishes like roast turkey, Stove-Top stuffing, and those instant mashed potatoes that came from a box, as well as Asian dishes like sticky rice casserole and napa cabbage with dried shrimp. After college I moved to San Francisco where I quickly adapted to the fresh, local and seasonal food movement that is so pervasive here (thanks to Alice Waters). Even celebrated food writer John Birdsall noticed it when he bought my recent cookbook Marbled, Swirled and Layered and commented on Facebook. “The recipes are all polish and rustic edges. They apply fruit and other produce in a way that marks them as Northern Californian, part of a tradition.”

So I’m thrilled that I’ll be at Macy’s Basement in San Francisco Union Square on Thursday, May 25th at 6pm for the celebration of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month! I’m even more excited about this event because I’ll be interviewing and talking to Top Chef winner Kristen Kish about her Asian heritage and how it has impacted her life. If you’ve watched the show or know Kristen at all, you know she has an interesting heritage similar to mine, born in Korea but adopted and raised in Michigan. I can’t wait to chat with her about her own story and Asian heritage. There’ll be some tasty Korean samples there, as well and a chance to get a photo with Kristen! I might even have a few cookbooks to sell there (or you can just bring a copy of a cookbook you already own and I’ll sign it). You can find details about the event at the Macy’s website or follow along with the hashtag #MacysAPAHM.

In the meanwhile, here’s recipe for a Meyer lemon and matcha green tea marbled bundt cake. It’s vaguely Asian (matcha green tea), slightly Northern California (Meyer lemon) and a little bit of a nod to my Midwest roots (bundt cake). Basically it’s me in dessert form. Just go with it. Hope to see you at Macy’s!

sounds like a good mash-up to clone yourself into cake form (oh, and i guess it sounds pretty tasty too 😉). i didn’t realize apahm was so big; there was a free concert in la last weekend for it in front of city hall, and they had a lot of great acts.
