I Ate My Way Through’s first book: I Ate My Way Through Singapore & Vietnam is out now (RRP $49.95) with 10% of net proceeds going to KOTO International, a not-for-profit restaurant and vocational training program that is changing the lives of street and disadvantaged youth in Vietnam.

I Ate My Way Through will be inviting guests to experience their new book: I Ate My Way Through Singapore & Vietnam at Global Gallery on Thursday 12th November; with a photography exhibition and a selection of authentic Vietnamese canapés from Saigon Saigon matched perfectly with Aja wines.

Saigon Saigon is a popular restaurant in Glebe, offering an authentic Vietnamese dining experience. In fact, their décor of paintings, wood carvings, hand-made lanterns and bamboo menu folders have all been sourced from Saigon, Vietnam; and most produce is even purchased personally by the Vietnamese restaurant owner’s mother on a daily basis. They will help bring to life a real Vietnamese taste without guests having to hop on a plane. For more information about Saigon Saigon, visit www.saigonsaigon.com.au.

Aja (pronounced Asia) and Aja Blush have been specifically blended to match Asian cuisine.  Ajaaims to achieve an upfront fruitiness which complements a wide variety of Asian flavours, from the more delicate, fragrant ingredients in Asian cuisine, to counterbalancing the heat of spicier dishes; plus it has a crisp finish which helps to cleanse the palate, and serves the Asian custom of sharing several very different flavoured dishes in the one meal. Aja Blush was created next for anyone who prefers red to white.  A lower alcohol, lightly sparkling Moscato blush wine, Aja Blush is deliciously refreshing with just a hint of sweetness.  For more information and stockists visit www.ajawines.com.au.

The I Ate My Way Through exhibition will be displayed at Global Gallery in Paddington, Sydney, for 1 week -starting Tuesday, 10th November, 2009.

A lover of the finer things in life, as well as cheap eats, her blogging ethos is all about empowering and inspiring people to expand their culinary repertoire. When not running her two companies (she is also the Managing Director of The Bamboo Garden online marketing agency), Jen can be found exploring old-world charms at vintage markets and delving into local eats around the world.
