Rent or Own? Rent through the Canadian Embassy
Chef Cameron Stauch has lived and cooked in four very different places: his home, Canada; India; Hong Kong; and here in Hanoi, Vietnam. He's shared Canadian cuisine with Queen Elizabeth, taught baba ghanouj to curious Indian home cooks, and hunted down curry leaves growing behind an abandoned embassy building in the center of Hanoi. He knows what traveling food-lovers do and don't need, whether they're moving abroad and setting up a whole new kitchen, staying in an Airbnb on a short vacation, or even traveling for business.
Here's Cameron's kit of 11 packable tools for the wandering chef.
