Getting Started
Vietnamese food is known for its flavoursome, which is contributed greatly by
herbs and spices. Now, lets prepare them before we cook!

Popular herbs you you find while eating in streets of Vietnam:

We have (from left to right, up to down) corriander, perilla, spear mint and basil.
In this cookbook, we learn about Vietnamese specialty, which means the treat,
so the dishes contain more meat than other usual ones. To balance that, we often
add heaps of herbs in. The herbs not only make the food freshing but also have
medical purposes according to traditional belief.

And we use different spices in a single dish:

Shallot, garlic and lemon grass are often used in stir- fried dishes to raise the
fragrance of food, and balance the flavour between red and green
ingredients. Whereas, ginger, cinamon, cadarmon, star anise and corriander seed
are often used in slow cooked or stew ones. There are several natural colour to
dye food to the right colour while cooking such as turmeric and anato. Chilli
and pepper are not used while marinated or cooked like above spices, but to
keep the fragrance, they will be added to the food in the end!
