Kat Lieu

Kat Lieu, formerly a doctor of physical therapy, fell in love with baking. Radii China has dubbed her the doyenne of Asian-style home baking. King5 New Day calls her the 'Queen of Asian baking,' and Good Morning America has named Kat as one of their 2022 AAPI Inspiration List Changemakers! Kat is currently a full-time author and recipe developer at modernasianbaking.com. Originally from New York City, she now calls Washington state her home. Lieu is also the founder of a popular online baking group called Subtle Asian Baking (SAB). Kat's first #veryasian baking cookbook, Modern Asian Baking at Home, will be out on July 26, 2022. When she is not developing recipes or posting a viral reel or TikTok, she is playing with her Shih-poo, Panda, or playing video games (currently Fortnite, Overwatch, and Heroes of the Storm) with her son and husband.
