The last time I stepped foot in beautiful Vietnam was 7 years ago! Wow, now 7 years later I am mother of two gorgeous boys (who make wonderful kitchen helpers) and I have embarked on the dream of setting up my Vietnamese street food business.
Today I make the long awaited journey to revisit the motherland. I’ve been told much has changed and I’m both nervous and excited.
One thing is for sure, I will be experiencing, and of course eating some of the best and healthiest food in the world! Which obviously means I get to eat LOTS 😋😋😋
On Tuesday, I will start my culinary journey at The Saigon Cooking Class in Ho Chi Minh City http://www.saigoncookingclass.com
