Summer is almost here, and with the warm weather, Generoso very kindly asked Lily if she could make a bun dish.
Bun (vermicelli) comes in many forms. It can be served with soup, or it can be served with crisp, fresh veggies.
For this week’s recipe, Lily made bun with lemongrass pork, a cross between the very traditional Bun Thit Nuong (Vermicelli with BBQ pork) and Ga Xao Xa Ot (chicken with lemongrass and chilies) that you will find in most Vietnamese restaurants.
This episode also has a new friend in it….the mandolin! It is a great tool to prepare the carrots and the cucumbers that give this dish perfect amounts of crisp textures and freshness.
Music by Franz Liszt, Piano Sonata in B minor, S. 178
Enjoy! Happy summertime!
