Fellow Vietnam foodhead Cathy at Gastronomyblog features in the latest series of food ventures of Padstow’s finest TV chef Rick Stein in Vietnam. I’ve been a fan of his for a while myself. Vietnam is just one episode in a series that takes in other parts of south east Asia. I watched the whole Vietnam episode today and just discovered it on YouTube. It’s a good broadbrush, although I noticed a few wee errors – at least errors to me – and why did he go to the old, tired and grumpy Cha Ca La Vong??? They really do not deserve the press. It’s similar to the Anthony Bourdain show in Vietnam recently, with a bit more depth, a lot more “how you can do this at home” and a few more sites. After all it’s a longer show. All in all, a very enjoyable reminder of life on the streets in Vietnam (if you ignore the posh junks, boats, cars and hotels…) Watch the clip above. Our Cathy appears at 2 minutes in on Ben Thanh market.
