With our car loaded to the MAX we headed to Canterbury yesterday to cater for The University for the Creative Arts Degree Show 2017. It was such a pleasure to be back at my old university and see familiar faces (some of whom haven’t changed one bit – eternally youthful).
Hanoi Cà Phê impressed the crowds with our fresh Vietnamese BBQ flavours 🌈🇻🇳💥🌶
We’re super honoured to be asked back to cater for next years Degree show at all the UCA campuses!!! Woohoo 😃👏🏻✌🏼

Greg’s incredible Chà Cá Hanoi – Grilled monk fish with vermicelli noodles, salad and spicy dipping sauce. We ate this famous Hanoian dish on our recent trip to Vietnam, and I was REALLY happy to be eating this again in my kitchen last night 😋😋😋

Vietnamese Sunday Lunch

Food, Food and Drink, Vietnamese, Vietnamese Street Food

After a wonderful trip to Northern Spain and the south of France, I have returned to London and Hanoi Cà Phê with the urge to eat some traditional fuss-free Vietnamese comfort food. 

The first thought upon waking up this morning was ‘what am I going to Eat for Sunday Lunch today?’ With a rumbling tummy I salvaged the ingredients I had in my cupboard and fridge and luckily came up with the vital ingredients for today’s Vietnamese Sunday lunch. I wanted to keep this simple, healthy, balance and comforting. This menu was ready in 45mins and took 10mins to devour!!

  
So much goodness in a bowl – one of the dishes in my Vietnamese Sunday lunch is Ginger & Dandelion soup broth. So good on its own or poured over your rice.

  
Foil baked salmon with ginger, sesame, soy and dill – Amazing.

  
A classic comfort dish in today’s lunch includes Vietnamese omelette – thin and crispy like a pancake flavoured with shallots, nuoc mam and a dash of chilli flakes.

  
The complete Sunday menu – Healthy, balanced and delicious! This is what Vietnamese Home cooking is about.

Spanish Inspiration

Food, Food and Drink, Street Food

This week we have been lucky enough to experience and taste the Basque regional cuisine in Northern Spain.  From green tomatoes, ultra fresh giant shrimps (which Eddie helped me prepare and cook) to renowned Pintxos bars in San Sebastián serving the finest tapas style snacking food, we have been well fed with food and inspiration!

I will certainly be taking elements of the fresh, colourful and vibrant Vasco flavours to influence Hanoi Ca Phe.

Love – Food – Travel – Inspiration!
