THE DIFFERENT FLAVOURS OF VIETNAMESE FOOD | Vietnamese Food Lovers

THE DIFFERENT FLAVOURS OF VIETNAMESE FOOD | Vietnamese Food Lovers


Vietnamese Food Lovers

Exploring Vietnam’s culinary scene from north to south is like tasting several countries for the price of one. Its long, slender and unique geography plays an important role in its cuisine because of how the climate affects the availability of certain food and spices within each region. Travelling from northern Vietnam, through its central belly and down to its southern tail you will see not only different ingredients being used but varying styles and approaches to food and its preparation. North The food in Vietnam’s northern region is often influenced by tradition. When Vietnamese ancestors settled in the northern deltas, there was a large amount of importance placed on food and clothing among the community. Hung Kings, for example, would hold cooking contests for simple foods like steamed rice and rice cakes. Such traditions can still be seen today, with families using strict cooking methods as well as specific ingredients and food pairings to make the perfect dish. Being located so close to the border of China, Chinese influences can be spotted within Vietnam’s mountainous provinces west of the Red River Valley. However, the northern delta does also make use of native ingredients like fish sauce and shrimp paste to show
