I found it. I found it! I have moved 3 times across borders and there was something that has gone missing. Well not missing, but just hidden.

This was a very vital piece of paper as it had Christine's fantastic recipe for Vietnamese Chả Giò. My teenage boys have been begging for this yummy recipe for years and I just found it folded neatly in one of my other cooking books that have sailed the great seas from America to Asia.

I would like to introduce a very lovely lady, Christine from whom I met 8 years ago in Ann Arbor, Michigan. My husband and I took a Vietnamese cooking class together and had a wonderful time and learned so much from Christine.

If you happen to visit Ann Arbor, Michigan, be sure to book a cooking class with Christine as it will be a very memorable experience.

Vietnamese Chả Giò is a lovely roll that is stuffed with pork, mushrooms, shallots, jicama, cellophane bean noodles, carrot, shrimp, bánh tráng (rice paper). These little treats are fried and it makes the exterior crunchy and glistening. I love to dip my Vietnamese Chả Giò in Thai Sweet and sour sauce.
