Getting in the mood for Vietnam and Cambodia
Images from a recent Travel Companions Club gathering in Christchurch at a Vietnamese Cooking School.
Here participants firstly learned about the herbs and vegetables used in Vietnamese cooking, then had the chance to make their own dish with the expert tuition of the Cooking School staff.  Not to mention sampling the finished Spring Rolls.  A fun night enjoyed by all
