Building A Nourishing Asian Kitchen
Listen now
Sophia Nguyen Eng was in the tech world when she decided to make a dramatic shift. She left her high-paying corporate job, exchanged it for a homestead with chickens and sheep, and began cooking real food for her family. The next thing she knew, she was working on "The Nourishing Asian Kitchen" cookbook in an attempt to preserve the rich culinary traditions of Vietnam, China, Japan, Korea, and other Asian countries. Today, she tells us what drove her shift. She talks about her family's health concerns (like her husband's eczema or her mother's heart issues), where she began to overhaul her kitchen (hint: in the spices, sauces, and oils in the cabinets) and how we can make similar shifts for health and healing. She also describes which recipes are the easiest to attempt from her cookbook for the Asian cooking novice and why eating out at Asian restaurants can be problematic. This episode was recorded in front of a LIVE audience of Weston A. Price Foundation members.   Visit Sophia's website: Become a member of the Weston A.
