Monica fell in love with food when she was a teenager. Instead of hanging out at the mall or movies with her friends, she would rather lock her self at home and watch her food shows (i.e. Jamie Oliver, Julia Child, and 30 Min Meals by Racheal Ray). She is a self taught cook and loves to style food. As she got older she was able to learn many Cambodian recipes from her mom before she passed away from lung cancer. Cooking Cambodian food makes her happy because it was one of many things she shared with her mom. She would love to share this distinct cuisine with the world.
