Having traveled in Asia quite a bit in our household we love having access to authentic Asian cooking provisions in Boulder. There is a funny little strip mall in which resides a small Asian market, an Indian shop and a Mexican bakery. I frequent the Asian shop for supplies, fresh produce or just to poke around. The owner makes fabulous Sesame Balls (large round balls with sweet sesame paste in the middle, deep fried with sesame seeds covering the outside; gluten free) and recently a Vietnamese New Year roll. It took me a long time to work up the courage to speak to the owner. She’s a bit abrupt and I felt like I might be infiltrating a cultural domain to haul my white girl self in there, unsure I was completely welcome.
