The family we stayed on was about 90 miles northwest of the city of Ha Noi – a rural village area composed of small farms. Each farm had a modern house, duck and geese pond, a fresh water well, small animal structures, fruit trees, vegetable and herb garden, and an area to grow rice seedlings. All the land on the farm was well utilized. Our gracious hosts butchered chickens and ducks for lunch and dinner served with garden-fresh vegetables and a lot of herbs. The women prepared, cooked, and served the delicious 10 course feast – all family style. Extended families are joined together for meals which were joyous, cheerful occasions. The variety of food dishes was endless and amazing. The delicious meals can only be explained as a food connoisseur’s best dream.
There are exotic dishes for the adventurous appetite yet simple dishes for the plainer palate. Bon Appetite!
Beautiful Vietnam has it all!
