Hi, my name is No which means Blooming Flower. I was born in Hue – an old capital of Vietnam with unique cuisine. My hometown was known for old imperial, diverse cuisine and the famous royal food. If you have got chance to visit Hue, you should not miss out Bun Bo Hue – a very famous kind of noodle soup in Vietnam cuisine.
When I was 20 years old, I got married and moved to Ho Chi Minh city with my husband. After 10 years living in Ho Chi Minh city, my family came back to Hoi An- my husband’s hometown to settle down here. Hence, I had opportunity to learn different cuisine from different provinces. I’m not a professional chef but cooking delicious and heathy food for family is my happiness. When my daughters said “Mommy, it’s so yummy”, I fell as the world is blooming. As time passed by, my princesses grew up, they got married and lived with their own family. I haven’t had many chances to cook for them any more but I have discovered my passion for cooking. That is the reason why I would like to share with you a Vietnamese traditional meal at my house where I live with my husband. Join us, you will feel a real Vietnamese family’s atmosphere.
