There are no big grocery stores or even a Bodega around the corner. But there are plenty of open markets selling produce, meats, and prepared foods all around us. So in Hoi An, we took up a cooking class which includes a bike ride to organic farms where herbs, papayas, and taro are beautifully grown in rows and rows behind the farmers’ house. It is a beautiful and peaceful moment watching workers tending the land the old fashion way. We were fortunate to have an animated and talented cook My Linh to be our guide for the day. We learned how to make Mi Quang (rice noodle soup with pork, tomato,and crispy chips), Banana blossom salad, and poached fish in banana leaf. She was a lot of fun and wish she could come work with us!
