Cooking Vietnamese Food with Andrea Nguyen

Vietnam Weekly

If you’re anything like me, you are really missing Vietnamese food during lockdown. I’m a decent home cook, but with all street food shut down, I have been craving my favorites, particularly cơm tấm and bún thịt nướng.With no end in sight to social distancing regulations, I talked to cookbook author Andrea Nguyen of Viet World Kitchen to get some pointers on making Vietnamese food at home.We covered the basic ingredients you’ll need in your kitchen (4:30) before discussing a range of dishes, including cơm tấm (8:25), canh (10:52), bún thịt nướng (14:13), tofu (17:19), món kho (19:04), phỏ (23:22), gỏi (25:32) and bánh mì (28:03). I can’t wait to try these out, and I also invite listeners to check out Andrea’s cookbook Vietnamese Food Any Day, which makes many aspects of this wonderful cuisine entirely approachable for the average home cook.
