a small announcement & a little break

This is me on the street of Hoi An around this time last year. It was my very first week with my very first professional full-frame camera.

Today, I’m so happy to share with you guys that I’ve just signed a Vietnamese cookbook deal, which means I’ll be writing and photographing my book full time. I’ll have to take a break from this blog for a few months, which upsets me a bit but at the same time I’m so excited to turn my love for food and photography into something tangible. My book will be in English and published worldwide, which is an incredible honor and an unbelievable dream to me – a home cook and a self-taught photographer.

Thank you for your support on this blog from the beginning and I’ll see you in at the end of December.

  6. Linh,
    My name is Jeffrey Gates. I am a restaurant operator in the greater Boston area. I am building a Vietnamese restaurant concept here in Boston. I read your book for inspiration. I loved it!
    I am looking for a chef here in the greater Boston area.
    Do you know of anyone?
    Do you have any thoughts on the best way for me to find a chef with your drive and enthusiasm for Vietnamese cooking and culture?
    Thank you and best luck!
