St. Pete: Saigon Asian grocery, downtown

Today we went into the Saigon grocery on MLK/9th around the 500 block North. What a treasure trove!

Is anyone teaching about Asian cooking of any kind here? I've become enamored of every Vietnamese dish I've tried, but I'd like to learn about any Asian cuisine.

I asked the lady at the register if she knew of any cooking classes, but she said no; she did say that she had taught for years, but seemed to be glad to be out of the teaching business.

I go into these wonderful ethnic markets, and I feel so ignorant. The amount of the English text on the packages is quite limited; I need a guide!
