Welcome to this edition of Regional Recipes! I hope you all brought your appetites because there is a serious feast awaiting you. And if you weren't hungry before stopped by. Well. You will be. Imminently.
So please, have a seat. And get ready for Regional Recipes....VIETNAM!
Vietnamese Chicken and Pineapple Soup. This soup helped her ward off some chilly weather while also satisfying her craving for Asian cuisine! Talk about multi-tasking!
Com Ga, Nuoc Mam Gung, and Mang Tay Xao. Nope, she didn't just dip her toes in...she dove headfirst!
Garlic Shrimp and Green Papaya Salad. Ain't it pretty?
Cha Gio or Vietnamese Spring Rolls! Who doesn't love a bite of some deep-fried goodness every once in a while?
Vietnamese Potato Patties, otherwise called Cha Khoai Tay. She was kind of stressed out about not knowing what to cook for this edition of RR...but I think she chose quite a winning dish, don't you?
Vietnamese Braised Beef over Rice Noodle Salad. With home-cooked food this good, who needs take-out!
Vietnamese Caramel Ginger Chicken. She decided to make this at home before trying it out at a restaurant near her house...and personally I think I'd take her version. Any day.
Vietnamese Pancakes, but she also does some research on their Vietnamese name - Banh Xeo. It's a fun story so stop by her blog and check it out!
Sticky Rice with Fruit Coulis is just the thing to satiate it.
Vietnamese Herb Salad Rolls with Peanut Dipping Sauce. It's a good thing. Because no meal is complete without peanut butter. At least in my mind.
Fried Fish with Lemongrass and Salad. The flavors in this sound so fresh and delicious that my taste buds are bursting just thinking about them!
Vietnamese Caramelized Grilled Pork.
Caramelized Garlic Shrimp to drool over!
Braised Tofu In Caramel Sauce. Sweet, salty, and good served over pork, chicken or fish for the non-tofu lover...this dish was fantastic.
Thanks to everyone for participating!
And now for next month.
We are going to...Greece! Mainly because I've been craving some spinach and feta lately. And what better reason is there than that!
I'll make an official post announcing it and the rules and everything but I wanted to get the word out so that you guys could put on your thinking caps!
