Tour of Vietnam & Angkor Wat: Flavours and Highlights with Mindy Woods and Masterchef Travel

FlyerVeitnam&Cambodia copy


I am absolutely thrilled to be leading a tour to Vietnam and Cambodia and hope that you will be able to join me on this incredible adventure.Together we will discover the contrasts between fast paced Saigon, and the more sedately Hanoi with its gorgeous pockets of old world charm. We’ll spend time on a traditional ‘junk’ cruising picturesque Halong Bay, and I am really looking forward to seeing the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat – once almost impossible to visit. Best of all, we’ll discover together the amazing flavours , tastes and traditions of Vietnamese cooking which epitomise this incredible country and its culture. And, along the way we’ll have the chance to talk to my sensational experience on MasterChef, and all the fabulous things that have happened  since.

Be sure to check-in, sign up and explore the food adventures that await you at MasterChef Travel .

Yours In the Discovery of Culture & Taste,

Mindy Woods


Hello and welcome to Mindy-Woods.com.au 

Mindy Woods

Thank you for joining me on what is not only a website for food lovers but a website for lovers of life.

In the famous word of Julia Child “People who love to eat are always the best people”. Welcome to Mindy-Woods.com.

From humble food beginnings cooking soggy toasted sandwiches for my parents at the age of four, to a life of food, travel, discovery and adventure I am living out my dreams. The more I eat, the more I learn, the more my dreams grow.

We are indeed the Lucky Country for so many delicious reasons and I am on the hunt to discover them all!

Beginning in January 2014,  I am on the hunt to discover Australia’s Best Produce  . Those secret little gems that are nourished, loved and harvested throughout our vast and fertile land. From artisan breads, to hand churned butter, to the magic of black truffles, to the treasures of the sea. The farmers, producers and families who provide us with the very best produce in the world.

Do you know where I can find Australia’s best produce?  Get in touch and let me know.

Join me as I discover Australia’s best and most passionate producers, share with me your very best home cooked recipes and follow along as I create locally inspired recipes and menus to serve throughout my Nation Wide PopUp restaurant tour. I hope that you will engage with me, share with me your soul food, those fabulous home cooked dishes that feed not only the tummies but the hearts and souls of the ones you love.


Join me on this foodie journey to discover, create, share and devour. With Love,



Love the update Mindy – thanks so much and so glad everything is working out so well for you. This is more about your own fine abilities and your drive than anything we or the show did! Do let us know when your place opens – very excited for you. We are all more than a little proud of the class of 2012 and all that you are achieving! You were always one of that season’s shining lights and you continue to burn brightly! Keep it up.
