Nouvelle cuisine of Asia

Vietnamese chefs like to refer to their cooking as "the nouvelle cuisine of Asia." And indeed, with the heavy reliance on rice, wheat and legumes, abundance of fresh herbs and vegetables, minimal use of oil, and treatment of meat as a condiment rather than a main course, Vietnamese food has to be among the healthiest on the planet.

In Vietnamese tradition, to balance Yin and Yang a good meal should meet a few important requirements none of which could be ignored:
  • It must occur at a pleasant place and time.
  • It must be shared with close friends.
  • It must be in agreement with the weather.
Quality ingredients, a clever mixture of aromatic herb flavors, and a well-appointed setting are of the utmost importance.
