About The Ravenous Couple

We believe good food and cooking brings friends, family, and loves ones together—and keeps them together, hence our motto, Cooking Life Together. Raised in first generation immigrant Vietnamese-American families in opposite parts of the country, we both were nurtured with a love for Vietnamese heritage and cuisine. Our mission is to show you how authentic Vietnamese food is simple, fresh, and delicious. Together we share recipes that reflects our cultural heritage as well as non-Vietnamese dishes, experimenting with new inspirations from around the world. Our love of good food knows no bounds and our appetite is insatiable, so we hope you join us on our journey of cooking life together.

ăn ngon — eat well,
