Our Story

It has been more than a decade since we, Lili, Anh and Ha arrived in Melbourne Australia with memories of Vietnamese food and family recipes. During that time, the Australian culinary scene has truly blossomed with new generations of chefs and home cooks, incorporating new ingredients and techniques. Our passion for food has also grown in that journey, learning about new ingredients and techniques and incorporating them to make our food more exciting and flavourful.

With Rice Kitchen, we want to share our deep knowledge and passion for a wider community of home cooks, and help you confidently and easily cook up delicious and authentic Asian-inspired meals at home.

We have carefully chosen and crafted a range of products for such purposes. We have put together Rice Kitchen Feast Box for your home gathering, and also selected ranges of premium Asian ingredients in our online shop.

Our food philosophy
"We believe good food begins and ends with ingredients. The foundation of good cooking is fresh and quality produces. That combines with skill and love, magic always happens."

  • We thrive to source the best possible ingredients and what we use at home.
  • We help you get through the maze of ingredients and techniques.
  • We provide you with our skills, knowledge and experiences about Asian cooking. We not only help balance flavours of a dish but also between the 3-4 shared dishes of the meal.
  • However, you still be the cook who holds the most important touch to the final dish – love.

"I have always loved food and cooking. Mom said she saw the sign from very early days. When she was pregnant with me, mom had to go to local market three times a day and tried any food that she saw there. And yes, that's still me now, I love markets and food.

I started blogging few years ago after food photography knocked me off completely. Firstly, it was simply to create a space so I can store recipes (and my food photos) for my little girl to use in the future. However, the more I blog the more I want to share. Not just the recipes but also the fresh and beautiful Asian ingredients that I have access here in Western part of Melbourne.

And Rice Kitchen came to live so I can share with everyone my love of Asian flavours, especially Vietnamese cuisine. I want to ensure people want to cook my recipes can also get the same stuff in my pantry. They can taste the meat from my favourite butcher who not only produces the perfect cuts but also keeps his workstation spotless day in and out. They also get to know the work of the fishmonger who spends hours wondering the fish market every morning and only picks the best catch of the day... And many others who have shared with me so much knowledge about the food they grow and produce. And, I hope with Rice Kitchen, it will be easy and more often for everyone to eat fresh and healthy Asian food at home. Especially, your home-cooked Asian feasts are always the best experiences and tastiest ever!"
