Considered one of the healthiest cuisines in the world Vietnamese cuisine has got a lot going for it. Fresh crisp ingredients, spices and aromatic herbs in Vietnamese food recipes lead to light and colourful dishes that are both satisfying and tasty.
Stock cupboard essentials generally include fish sauce, shrimp paste, soy sauce, rice, as well as a number of fresh ingredients including lemongrass, ginger, mint, Vietnamese mint, long coriander, Saigon cinnamon, bird's eye chili, lime, and Thai basil.
