Busy with a job as an accountant in the field of construction, but Ms. Song Anh (45 years old, Hai Phong) is still very hard at work in the kitchen every day. The mother confided that cooking was a hobby before, but now it has been “upgraded” to a passion. “Because according to me hobbies can change over time, but passion will multiply the day exponentially.” she says.

7X recalls, right from the age of 7, Ms. Song Anh began to practice cooking rice with an oil stove. The first time cooking rice burned an aluminum pot because it didn’t give water, only rice. When the rice was burnt, she removed the burnt part, put the yellowish part in another pot, poured boiling water with the thought that a child would still become rice… but in the end it turned into roasted rice water. Since that time when I accidentally cooked fried rice water, I started to enjoy the cooking game, working hard to cook rice even though it was just simple vegetable rice at that time. However, cooking a pot of rice with a wood stove must also keep in mind what kind of firewood is rich in so that it can give little or a lot of firewood to avoid the rice being burned or raw is also a problem.
“When I was a kid, I confess that my parents worked as workers all day and night, and didn’t have time to teach me housework. I lived in a dormitory, so when it was time to cook, I kept watching how my older brothers and sisters cooked. Then learn from it. Then there are dishes that my brothers and sisters witty, “hide my job” from seeing, then I imagine the process of processing and make it my own way. but when I was 8 years old, I cooked fish in that way, while the whole neighborhood cooked fish and had to fry it, I didn’t. Later, when I was 19 years old, my mother opened a rice and rice cake shop in the morning, I was a “chef” I bought cookbooks for self-reading and cooking, and my customers are “guinea pigs.” They give me advice so I can adjust the seasoning accordingly, because there are many regional dishes. Men give sweet sugar,” Ms. Song Anh confided.
Perhaps, it is the meticulousness, observation, attention and experience in the kitchen that up to now, Ms. Song Anh has been able to cook many delicious dishes for her family to enjoy.
Currently, every day, she will go to the kitchen to cook 3 breakfasts, lunch and dinner for the whole family. To do this, she often goes to the market in the late afternoon, buying things for dinner that day, breakfast and lunch the next day. The mother made sure to only buy food from people she knew, with their phone numbers saved. If you want to eat something, I will tell you, they will pick it up until after work, so you are not afraid of not being able to buy good food at the end of the afternoon.
According to Ms. Song Anh, dinner is the heart of the family. This is the time when the whole family ends a day of work and study, so there will be more time to cook. Her family has 4 people, so dinner usually has at least 2 main dishes, 1 soup or vegetable and 1 hybrid dish (such as spring rolls, spring rolls, steamed snails or grilled oysters…).
“I come home at 5:30, fifteen minutes later I go to the kitchen and at 7 pm the whole family sits at the table to eat. While cooking dinner, I prepare, prepare, and prepare food for breakfast and lunch the next day. I usually don’t pay up for each meal, I go to the market every day, so when I see something fresh and delicious, I will buy it and buy it to process in one or two meals, I don’t store things in the freezer. hands are too forehead”, then the next meals will be moderate to balance income and expenditure and have reasonable nutrition for the whole family. confident mother said.
When she entered the kitchen, her first criterion was not to waste food. She always calculates the right amount of food. Maybe four people with five to six dishes a meal but the right amount. Many dishes with small plates of food according to the preferences and diets of each family member. 7X shared, his cooking tip is to combine 2 in 1 when cooking to save time. For example, when cooking boiled meat and steamed squash, use a pot with a colander, boil the meat below and steam the squash above. She does not let downtime when cooking, that is, consider combining the steps of cooking this dish and preparing another dish, rather than waiting for it to be finished and then cooking one at a time. Therefore, each meal she prepares very quickly.
She also regularly changes the menu so that everyone in the family doesn’t get bored when it’s time to eat. In addition to family meals, Ms. Song Anh also cooks a variety of dishes for the whole family to enjoy on weekends, other local-style dishes, hot pot dishes, Chinese dishes and makes some kinds of dishes. European cakes and salads too. Particularly vermicelli, vermicelli, pho, porridge… every day, my mother cooks because it is her family’s breakfast dish.
Thanks to her skillful, meticulous and skillful hands, everyone in the family is very fond of the dishes she cooks. She said that although her husband doesn’t give compliments like their children, he often talks funny, “Wife is the food of a man’s life. Fortunately, we all get to eat well.”
For Ms. Song Anh, a family meal is the moment when the whole family can sit down to eat and talk. In addition to showing the courage of the mother and wife, the family meal also shows the love of the chef in each dish, whether simple or elaborate. It is the warmest time in a day after the hardships and worries facing the social life.
