Vicki is a vivacious mother of two who juggles the responsibility of running a household with the demands of publishing a cultural wedding magazine. Although she is confident in her work, she feels completely insecure in the kitchen. It doesnt help that her six-year-old son is a budding food critic who continually tosses her food aside and asks if Daddy can make it instead. Vicki progresses from pathetic pad Thai to learning how to make Lime and Coconut cupcakes. She also Thais one on with some Red Snapper en Papillote and shows that the proof of what shes learned is in her rice pudding at a glamorous event for businesswomen. Christine will have to work overtime if she wants to help Vicki create a Thai feast that her whole family will enjoy and no longer leave Vicki fishing for compliments.
