Culinary walkthrough of Vietnam at Continental

Vetnammese Food Fest will wrap up today at the at the Emerald Restaurant of the Ceylon Continental. The Vietnamese Food Festival offers an authentic Vietnamese food prepared by Chef Duong Tran Thai. Chef Duong Tran Thai has honed his talent through a history of stints spanning Asia and Europe.

A former Chief Cook at Sea Lion Ship in Denmark, Chef of Caravelle Hotel in Saigon Vietnam, and Chief Cook, Saigon World Company in Japan, over 15 years of experience has led him to stop by the culinary capital of the world, Sri Lanka.

Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for freshness of the ingredients and for promoting a healthy eating style. “Most meats are only briefly cooked to preserve their original textures and colours.

Vegetables are rarely cooked; if they are, they’re boiled or only briefly stir-fried. The freshness of food will be maintained. Herbs and vegetables are used abundantly, and colourful condiments will accompany all dishes. Broth and soup based options will be on offer too – a culinary trademark of all three Vietnamese regions.” Chef Duong Tran Thai explained.

This tantalizing food promotion will feature saute pork with five spices & lemon grass, pho shrimp noodle soup, variety of rice paper rolls served with peanut sauce, chicken meat cooked with coconut juice, pineapple, onions & spicy fish sauce, tender beef saute with coconut milk and black mushrooms, and grilled beef & prawn over vermicelli.
