In 2012, I took a trip to Hoi An, Vietnam and attended a cooking class at the Red Bridge Cooking School and Restaurant. The day started early with a trip to an organic farm where we picked up our herbs and learned about the different type of herbs in Vietnam and their role, both culturally and culinarily. Then we went to the morning market where we bought noodles, vegetables, fish sauce, herbs, spices, and meat. Then to the beautiful cooking school where we made friends and cooked up a storm. Many of these photos come from my friend Susanne.
