Recipes from Vietnam

The lush greenness of Vietnam produces a wide range of vegetables and herbs that impart a fresh taste and fragrance to its cooking. Bunches of coriander and mint are scattered over steaming bowls of pho, a soupy noodle and meat dish which can be bought on every street corner. The basic flavor of many Vietnamese dishes comes from nuocmam, a fish sauce that is added to soups and stir-fried, or used in marinades with lemon grass, lemon juice and chilies to give a tangy, pungent flavor to meat and fish.
