Chinese New Year Spotlight: Tra Vinh

The days are counting down, the lanterns being strung and the red packets being stuffed. Yes, Chinese New Year is almost upon us and that means one thing in my eyes. Food.  If you haven’t seen my previous posts,…

Chinese New Year Spotlight: Good Fortune Roasting House

In my eyes, one of the most magical ingredients to grace our palates is duck. Juicy, delicious, tender and oh so tasty pieces of slightly pink meat with crisp skin hugging a thin layer of fat. It’s glorious, and…
