Master the Art of Banh Mi Sandwich Making (Video)
After releasing my second, best-selling cookbook, "Banh Mi", it seemed pretty obvious to make a tutorial about mastering the art of Vietnamese sandwich making.
Making a bánh mì sandwich is really about using a bread roll (preferably a baguette), adding the filling of your choice, Vietnamese-style pickles, lime mayonnaise and quality butter. That's pretty much it. If you want the recipe for each of the elements of a bánh mì, check out my cookbook! In my opinion there's no such a thing as a bánh mì not being authentic since it's already a fusion cuisine adaptation of the traditional jambon-beurre (French ham and butter baguette sandwich). After the colonial period, only wealthy people could afford imported French goods. The natural response was to replicate the French dishes as closely as possible. The Vietnamese sought out and replaced the costly French ingredients they adored with local products. For example pickled carrots and daikon are a substitute for cornichons (the small pickles in the French sandwich).
