What you'll do
We will meet early in the morning near Hoi An market. We’ll get to know each other over a vegan breakfast in an ancient traditional coffee house. After that we’ll walk to the market and I will introduce how we choose different kinds of fresh & seasonal ingredients. The market plays an important role in Vietnamese vegetarian lifestyle and we will explore this aspect of local cuisine. Ingredients in hand, we will grab a car to our Joi Garden in historic Tra Que herbs & vegetables village, a ten minute ride away. There you will learn how to prepare my interpretation of three Vietnamese vegetarian dishes, using the fresh produce we bought earlier. Cooking done, we can share stories over a family style lunch on the banks of the Hoi An river. During the meal, I will share about my joiful practicing on how to enjoy the meal in happiness and mindfulness also. After all, our garden and river view space is yours to be relax while having a complimentary Vietnamese coffee or fresh herbal tea as your choice.

My name is Jean. I enjoy being in the kitchen since I was a child. Became a vegetarian for more than 3 years until now just brought me to a new page of my life by nourishing myself, developing my heath, my awareness about what I eat & drink, sending my love, my healing to the food & sharing to people around me through cooking. ‘Eat light, live light’, I live with that spirit. I have a strong belief that with my cooking, I can heal myself, nature and people around me. The more I cook, the more I learn, the more respect I gain for Mother Earth & Nature, and the more grateful I feel to everyone around me as well.
