Interview: Minh Anh • Emma
In our latest interview of our series we meet Vietnamese student and content creator Minh Anh (Emma) who is based in Poland. Although she is studying Economics, she has a strong passion for food, from cooking it , baking it to eating it (and we totally agree - who doesn’t :)! ). Her dream is to open a cafe and bakery of her own and she tells us how she stays balanced in the pursuit of working toward it.

My favorite is definitely the matcha premium grade. It is so versatile and easy to blend. I usually make latte and oatmeals with matcha. And I just love it. (You can check out one of her matcha recipes here)
