Vietnamese food is one of the most popular styles of Asian foods and certainly a firm favourite of ours. After our trip to Vietnam, we were eager to put up some great Vietnamese recipes on the site for everyone to taste real authentic food from Vietnam. If it’s fresh vegetable spring rolls or delicious Pho noodle soup, we have some great easy Vietnamese recipes for you to try.
Vietnam’s history is complicated to say the least, but it has had profound effect on Vietnamese cuisine. There can be a marked difference in the North compared to the South when it comes to some Vietnamese dishes. This only serves to give the food lover a greater variety of dishes and variations to try.
One of the key elements to all Asian cuisines is fresh ingredients and Vietnamese cuisine is no different. You will find that nearly all Vietnamese families prepare their food from scratch each day using local fresh ingredients. Everyday around Vietnam, you can find vegetable markets selling a huge range of local ingredients. Fortunately, with internationalisation and multiculturalism, it’s easier than ever to find an Asian supermarket in the UK stocking great Vietnamese ingredients.
