Primer on Vietnamese Herbs

i discovered this very informative food blog, "viet world kitchen," and it is filled with recipes, eating etiquette, encyclopedic information about many ingredients and techniques. (thanks, sweth!).

this primer on herbs commonly used in the vietnamese kitchen is excellent:

the site also may help you understand the flavors in the mysterious delicious condiments on the table, for dipping or pho.

          you're welcome, chica! i am happy to pass on good finds!

        2. i like this seed company's site to look at lots of asian veggies and herbs. it's fun to play around on this site, and dream of a summer garden where you can go out, pick your herbs, and make a beautiful fresh summer salad! i can't wait!
