Vietnam was not same same, it was different
I am moving to Vietnam and looking forward to learning and filming all the amazing noodle soups, rice pancakes, rolls.... In Sri Lanka everything around Authentic world food project was very easy, but Vietnam was the very opposite.
They were not very good chefs at families I stayed with. They usually bought food on the streets. And the food on the streets was already prepared at home, so quite often I just saw final mixing of home made semi-finished products. And if they were a good chefs, they didnt like cameras, which I respect fully. I shot some video recipes eventually. Still Sri Lanka was much better from this point of view. I have a feeling I have to come back to Vietnam, I took the country from a wrong end … (February 2014)
