My entire trip in Vietnam was centered around food: the first thing I would do before going to a new city was doing research on what and where to get the best food. And before taking the train and bus to Hanoi I had already booked two cooking classes to learn how to make some of the refined Vietnamese dishes the cuisine is known for.
I was eager to learn, but unfortunately I was a bit disappointed. The cooking classes, not surprisingly though, target audience are tourists who are looking for a fun activity during their travelling, not necessarily people who love cooking and do it regulary. So in the “hands-on” cooking classes I barely did any cooking myself, but luckily I learned a lot of new things, like the big spoon is called a tablespoon and the small spoon is called a teaspoon..
Every morning I check out the new posts on all the foodblogs I’m following, but I never get as excited as when there’s a new post on my all-time favorite blog: So Delushious – a new post always makes my day. Delicious food, sarcastic humor, a love for fried chicken and spicy food and all written by the gorgeous Chrissy Teigen – I don’t know how anyone could not be a fan.
This salad is one of the mouthwatering recipes on her blog. It’s crazy ass spicy, it’s authentic Thai and (thus) incredibly flavorful, and not unimportant, also very healthy – it’s just so delushious.
