“By the time she turned 4 she was making some pretty awesome spring rolls (Vietnam)”

She said “My goal is to make international cooking approachable and fun. My husband and young daughter are eager guinea pigs. We live smack-dab in the middle of Middle America and face many of the same challenges as our community – a picky family member, finding ways to spice up dinnertime on a dime, and a desire to teach my child to love her world. We can’t travel right now, so bringing the world to our kitchen was a great solution for our family.”
