LittleMousyCanCook

by noreply@blogger.com (Nhung Duong) @ Vietnamese traditional food blog

As a truly food lover, I have an intense passion for cooking. My aspiration is to bring cooking lovers together to share experience, recipe and valuable techniques. Food is not about a physical thing but it relates to the spiritual world where we seek for absolute satisfaction and enjoyment. For me, to cook a delicious dish is to conquer a summit of achievement and perfection.


Little Mousy Can Cook is where I introduce you my favorite dishes from all over the world, especially Vietnamese cuisine, together with some techniques that I have learned and collected from experience and other sources. This page may also act as a guide book for any foreigners who wish to visit interesting places and enjoy Vietnamese specialties. Hope you like and support me by giving comments for my every post. Thanks in advance!
