Welcome Atticus.

I dated a Vietnamese woman for about a year.  It was my first introduction to Vietnamese food and it remains my dinner of choice when I dine out.  I especially prefer it over Thai food because Vietnamese usually uses fresh vegetables instead of cooking them into the meal.

Two of my favourites were Goi Ngo Sen (Lotus root salad) and Goi Cuon (fresh spring rolls), though we ate them with fish sauce instead of peanut sauce.

She also used to make the Cha Gio (fried spring rolls) very small and bite-sized. They were soooo good!  They were like potato chips. You could never eat just one!

Hi Wannabebwana,

It was great when you came to Vietnam. Moreover you were dating here. I think you had a great time. The food you eat is delicious and traditional. I also enjoyed it. Will you come back to visit Vietnam again? If so, let me know. I will show you the delicious food and beautiful tourist places of Vietnam. Or you can also search for information on vnfooday.com website. They are developing information for foreigners visiting Vietnam.

Atticus, I’ve never been to Vietnam.  My girlfriend was here in Canada (she came on the boat exodus around 1988 - a harrowing experience).

I’d love to visit Vietnam, all of Asia, actually.  Some day...

Hi,

At the young age of 78, I decided it was time to learn to cook.

I was directed to this site, and got interested in the history of certain foods, which kind of parallels my interest in genealogy.

Looking forward to “meeting” y’all, and learning alot about different foods and trying some new recipes.

😁

I’m a pothead (Instantpot that is)

Let’s make EagleSong really welcome, guys.

I’ve known Ann for ¾ of a century. She’s my big sister.    

We both learned the basics at our Mother’s knee. Yet, we have two radically different cooking styles: I prefer cooking with clay pots, manual prep implement, and such, while she’s a master of modern cooking implements, such as Instant Pots, Air Fryers, etc.  I tend to do everything from scratch, while she’s a big believer in convenience products; I mostly cook with gas or over live coals, while she cooks, primarily, with electrons.  As much as possible, I want to know the cultural matrix of the foods I cook, while she only wants to know that it tastes good.

But, you know what? We both get where we want to go.  Which pretty much sums up the natureof cooking; there are no right and wrong ways. Only the ways that work for you.

Anne, let’s hear more from you, and your experiences with the tools you use.          

But we hae meat and we can eat
And sae the Lord be thanket

Welcome Anne,

I tend to the more traditional cooking styles, too, but am not so rigid that I won't let convenience get in the way.  And, yes, my aim is that it taste good!

Welcome, EagleSong/Ann! I had to learn to cook as an adult too. I was so thrilled when I came here and learned tow to make a cheeseburger!
