Gourmet's Diary of a Foodie

Vietnam: The Taste of Simplicity


Episode 39

Join us on a trip to the incredible country of Vietnam, where fine cuisine is utterly simple. In a remote fishing village in the waters of Ha Long Bay, we’ll experience one of the most popular dishes in Vietnam: Canh Chua Ca (Sweet and Sour Fish Soup). Next we’ll take a caffeine-buzz tour with a food blogger to the many coffee houses in Hanoi. In Tay Ninh, the local rice paper at a family-run factory is so special that cooks come from all over Vietnam to stock up. Back in the Gourmet kitchen, Clay Pot Pork combines sweet, salty, and spicy in a single easy-to-make dish.
