Food Glorious Food

If I ever get around to writing my Vietnamese novel it will ooze with snippets about food. Foremost it will mention my most memorable sweet treat; hot sugarcane fished from a drum of steaming ginger syrup on a freezing night on a mountain track above Bac Me where, with a huddle of villagers, we squat around a fire and gnaw.

Food Stories

We often forget how much work goes into the food that appears on our plate or the drink that fills up our glass. Yet look at the chain of people and events that brings this all to us, and you realise the ubiquity and enormity of today’s food and beverage industry. Look even further and you see the stories behind the food. Everyone’s got an anecdote or a narrative.

I’ve eaten at Le Corto three times, the first two times with the owners. On the third occasion I went unannounced with a friend. What I was told before turned out to be correct; thanks to their reasonably priced set lunch (VND180,000 for two courses, VND250,000 for three), even their lunchtimes are busy at the moment. It was a Tuesday and we were lucky to get a table.
