Man, I have been swamped with so many deadlines that I failed to notice until this afternoon that Viet World Kitchen is a finalist for a Craftsy Blogger Award. Yahoo.
I have two online classes at Craftsy with over 6,000 people enrolled in both of them! I guess they must think the classes and this site are pretty helpful to nominate me.
Here's the deal: Voting ends tomorrow (1/28/15) at noon mountain time. Do me a huge favor and cast your vote for VWK. Scroll down to "Vote Now! Best Craftsy Cooking Instructor's Blog" at this Craftsy blogger awards page.
You don't have to register with Craftsy to vote. I just noticed that I'm currently in second place behind French pastry expert Collette Christian. Croissants vs. pho and dumplings.
P.S. The first issue of the VWK newsletter went out this afternoon. If you subscribed, it should have conveniently landed in your inbox. If not, access the newsletter via this link.
Additionally, I decided to do a new dumpling class for the May 2 class in Santa Cruz. The class is nearly full. Register if you're interested in making Shanghai soup dumplings, taro puffs and other delicate morsels. Details on Asian Dumplings Bootcamp II.
