How does a spice map differ from a cuisine map?

Sunday, 06/07/2015 20:27
Golden Spoon previously made a cuisine map and this year worked on creating a spice map. What is the difference between the two?

“Drawing a Vietnamese cuisine map” is a journey to build up a resource from which we can discover, collect and recover delicious dishes from all over the country. While processing the dishes, we received comments from food experts which helped us realize the difference between Vietnam cuisine and others; it is all about Vietnamese spices. Spices differ according to various regions, characteristics of local regions, or depending on the seasons. In addition there are different methods applied by chefs to create their own take on local dishes,” stated Mrs Vu Kim Hanh - Director of BSA center.

Chef Huan, of the Hotel Majestic told us that his new creation, a sauce made of sake fruit, has become extremely popular among Canadian tourists. I think we should continue to be creative in this direction. I think a spice map is more precise than cuisine map, because it enables us to record the name of fresh as well as processed spices in each region.

Currently Vietnam spices are starting to be recognized globally. For instance, in the last one or two years branded Vietnamese pepper has been exported, recognized and sold in American supermarkets.

I think that drawing a Vietnamese spice map in addition to a Vietnamese cuisine map, where we can discover and record the names of all spices, will enhance the value of Vietnamese cuisine; they will not compete with each other. It is possible that we could make another map next year continuing to make Vietnamese cuisine better known.
