Hi my name is Sung! I was born and raised in Hầu Thào village in Sapa. There are 5 ethnic minority groups in Sapa and I am apart of the Hmong ethnic tribe. I live in Ta Van village where I help my in-laws manage Indigo Snail Boutique Hmong Homestay, which is family ran. I do most of the cooking for our guests. By living here my whole life I can share my culture, family, experiences and traditions with you. I started cooking with my mom and grandmother when I was a little child. Cooking in my culture is something that is taught to you from generation to generation. My grandmother would teach me unique ways to make delicious flavors out of our local grown food. I look forward to sharing my cooking culture and traditions with you!
