Minh is a second generation raw & living food chef, she was born in Viet Nam in 1950 into a humble and loving Buddhist family, she is the youngest of eight children. At a very young age Minh began learning which plants were edible and which were not, how to find food and medicines in the jungle and how to use them. She spent her youth helping her mother grow, gather and prepare food for their family. They used simple and ancient techniques without electricity to prepare nourishing and great tasting food. In this way the art of preparing raw food was passed from generation to generation without even knowing what “raw food” was, to them it was just food.
In 1963 one of Minhs’ brothers was kidnapped by the North Vietnamese Army, her mother was devastated and sought guidance through prayer and from Buddhist Monks. Minhs mother was already a vegetarian but she received a revelation that if she gave up cooking and ate only uncooked vegetarian food her son would return to her, she did so and a year and a half later her son retuned to her unharmed. Minhs mother continued to eat only raw food until she died in 2005 at the age of 93. Minh carries on with the lessons she learned from her Mother and now creates some of the most original, beautiful and unbelievably delicious raw & living you will ever encounter.
