COOLCAT #3

Marcela

Story by Filip Prochazka August 25th, 2016

Meet Marcela

Working for one of the largest beverage producers in Central Europe, Marcela is already successfully pursuing her career as a brand manager. But don’t think of this Czech-born Vietnamese girl as of a dull office worker - Marcela has enough creativity and inventive ideas, both for her job and her spare time when she becomes the chef behind Vuong Cooking Class. Through this project Marcela provides original food tours in Prague’s largest Vietnamese market and community center and teaches you cook your favorite Phở Bo or the delicious Bún bò Nam Bộ directly at your home. And what I find the most valuable on her initiative is that asides allowing you experience the Vietnamese food in a highly original and fun way, Marcela also helps the Czechs closely encounter and understand the Vietnamese culture and habits.

Marcela kindly agreed to take part in this series and we met in the eerie greenhouse of the Botanical Gardens of the Charles University.
