New flavors are my favorite discoveries. When at home, I'm drooling over these pictures. When I finally get on the road my mind is on vacation but taste buds are at work. When I get back it's time to start cooking.
Surviving centuries of Chinese domination, French colonization, and civil war, some of the best gossip still happens early in the mornings around a hearty pile of freshly caught anchovies a coracle dumped in the middle of the sand by a tiny fishing village off the Coast of Vietnam. After a year of fermenting in deep, dark wooden barrels, these slippery little suckers will gracefully transform into one of the best seasonings the world has ever tasted....fish sauce, Vietnam’s pride and joy. #Ritual
