Bánh mì 🇻🇳

This week we’ll dive into the iconic Vietnamese bánh mì sandwich. Bánh mì is the Vietnamese word for ‘bread’, but also understood to be the Vietnamese baguette.
Originating on the streets of Saigon in the 1950s, the bánh mì sandwich is a French-Vietnamese hybrid consisting of an airy baguette, sour pickled daikon and carrot, crisp cilantro, spicy chilis, and a cool sliver of cucumber surrounding any number of protein options, from sweet minced pork to fatty pate to sardines. Let’s get to it and cook up some delicious bánh mì of your own.
