This Week's Film: Apocalypse Now
Cuisine: Vietnamese

As always, I’m looking for a dish that I’ve yet to try, and one that springs to mind is the Vietnamese-style sandwich known as Banh Mi. The name simply means baguette, but it seems that there are endless variations upon the theme.

A basic description of Banh Mi would be: a French baguette, split lengthwise and filled with various meats, vegetable toppings, and condiments, which leaves it quite open to interpretation. So I will be conducting more detailed research to decide on the combination of fillings and condiments that I will use for my own version.

My Banh Mi recipe will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Apocalypse Now film review.
