What you'll do
I specialize in authentic and healthy home-style dishes, making use of universal ingredients available the world over. I focus on a menu that requires no special tools to prepare or cook ensuring that you have no problem repeating the cooking process in your own kitchen. I use high quality ingredients, exclusive of MSG and I can tailor traditional menus to vegetarian/vegan palates, gluten-free, lactose-intolerant or special diets, etc. We will start from scratch. I will advise you on how best to prepare the food and guide you step by step through that cooking process with my cooking experience/tips to ensure you to get the best results. I also enjoy sharing insights into Vietnamese culture and life with you. The below is a SAMPLE MENU to give you an idea of the types of dishes I offer. The menu might vary. If you would like to learn to make something specific, please let me know at the time of booking. 1. Gỏi cuốn – Fresh summer rolls with pork, prawn, fresh vegetables, herbs and peanut butter dipping sauce; 2. Phở bò/gà - Beef/chicken noddle soup with spices, herbs; and 3. Chè - Sweet potato and mung bean pudding with coconut milk and peanuts.
Xin chào! I’m Lua Le. After 10 years working for law firms, I decided it was time to try my dream job as a home chef, which makes me excited to wake up each morning and know that I will be welcoming new friends into my home and show them how to cook Vietnamese home-style cuisine. When I'm not in my kitchen.... I love to travel, to practice yoga, meditation and dance for a healthy mind and body. An experience in my cooking class is not just about cooking and eating home food but also about spending time together to talk, share stories, traveling experiences and cultures.
Meal Sample menu: 1. Chả giò 2. Phở 3. Chè *Please refer to the ingredients mentioned above.
