Interpretation of that Vietnamese Staple- Banh Mi dish by Celine Pham French Vietnamese Chef and also sister of our friend Julien Pham from La Fricote Magazine amazing Parisian Food/Street Food magazine (
Enjoy the read in French. She is doing a banh mi with pure Vietnamese ingredients (papaya, mango, nuoc mam...) in a pure style french baguette. That dish totally embraces her dual culture, as French Vietnamese, I totally relate to her and her banh mi.

Bun Bo Xao by NYT

One of the classic dish in Vietnamese Cuisine, probably a staple in every Vietnamese household, Bun Bo Xao or also known as Bo Bun (like in France). Perfect dish for a hot summer lunch. This dish and also Bun Thit nuong (pork version) is a great balance of flavors, freshness, texture in a dish. Whenever you are going to a Vietnamese Restaurant and you are not in mood of a Pho/ or a soup ( almost impossible), Bun Bo Xao is a go to. So here is a version by New York Times which finally gives credit to that amazing dish.

Paris eternelle!!!

Just get back from Paris, we enjoyed our family, friends and the for sure the food. anWe came back also with a some future collaborations with local eateries from there. Stay tuned! May is the season of the strawberries and it is impossible to miss them there are all over the stalls in the markets, restaurants.... my favorite kind are called Gariguettes. We went to Normandy and enjoyed the pleasure of the simple produces which come straight from our friend's garden Jacques and Monique Dufour. We had the chance to try some amazing gastronomic restaurants: Abri, Saturne, Le Baratin and Servan...they are a must go. But the best is definately to share meals with our friends and family there.
