Food as an integral part of Vietnamese culture

Food plays a major role in Vietnamese culture and everyday life. Both the preparation and consumption of meals is serious business, and often connected to a long tradition of recipes that have been handed down through the generations. Vietnamese cuisine is reflective of the Vietnamese lifestyle, from the preparation to how the food is served.

Vietnamese food is the harvest of centuries of war, occupation, and colonization, not to mention constant battle with varying terrain, climate, and ethnic diversity. Going through long phases of war and political conflict, as well as cultural shifts, the vast majority of the Vietnamese people, have been living in poverty.

Vietnamese cuisine has seen Chinese influence in the last two centuries – due to Southern Chinese immigrants and refugees, and Vietnam also has a small contribution from France. Rice noodles and soups are popular in China and in fact, Pho is just the Vietnamese analog or equivalent to many such Chinese dishes.  The French are masters at creating stocks and reductions; the Vietnamese took this concept and ran with it, added their own flair to them, and made them the key components in most of their dishes. Vietnamese dishes have a wide spectrum of textures along with flavors which makes the cuisine one of the most sought after in the world.

No need to compromise on either health or taste

Vietnamese dishes are not too filling, they are nutritious because they contain ingredients from multiple food groups, feel very fresh to my mouth, and have a pleasing range of contrasting flavors and textures. Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of dairy and oil, and their reliance on herbs and vegetables. With the balance between fresh herbs and meats and selective use of spices to reach a fine taste, Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide.
