Mrs. Tran was raised in Cholon, the Chinatown of Saigon. Cholon was a harmonious melting pot of Vietnamese, Cambodian and Chinese cultures, which culminated into some of the most delectable Asian meals that are now enjoyed all over the world. From a very young age Mrs. Tran possessed an extremely curious mind, and combined her industriousness and passion for food to master the art of cooking Asian cuisines.
Mrs. Tran was forced to flee the Vietnam war with her young family and later resettled in Australia, where she continued her tradition of cooking her family recipes, to the great pleasure of her family and friends. Mrs. Tran believes that good food should be shared, and even now can be found in her kitchen creating that next masterpiece. Mrs. Tran is known for her meticulous preparation of raw ingredients and takes extreme pride in preparing her meals from scratch.
In 1989, Mr. and Mrs. Tran started their own food importing business. In 2012, the company decided to take a stance against many of the factories that engaged in harmful practices – things like having food tainted with harmful chemicals, inaccurate labelling, or having deliberately concealed ingredients. They saw that food standards had been compromised, and from then on they only worked with manufacturers who shared their vision for a cleaner food industry. Mr. and Mrs. Tran see their business as an extension of their values, so this was very important for them. If a business didn’t share their vision, no matter how big they were, it was simply not the right fit.
What we are striving to do at Mrs. Tran’s Kitchen is develop a brand that the good citizens of Australia can trust. When you see the Mrs. Tran’s Kitchen brand you can rest assured that we have gone to great lengths to ensure that our products meet the following criteria:
We understand that times have changed and people value their time differently. We have become a nation of extremely busy people and would much rather spend the little precious time we have to ourselves, with family or friends. At Mrs. Tran’s Kitchen we are devoted to using our vast knowledge of Asian cuisines to develop healthy, tasty meal solutions that are incredibly easy to cook at home.
