On March 14, 2017,
Thomas Gugler, president of the World Association of Chefs’ Societies,
officially awarded a certificate of honour to recognise Hoi An as the Food
Capital of Viet Nam.
Hoi An in Vietnam is often cited in international
magazines and travel pages as one of 10 best places to eat in the World. It is
also the World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999. It is about fabulous fresh
food is the order of the day – every day.
The ancient town of Hoi An, 100km south, down the
coast, is a very beguiling place to spend a few days, with its lazy river lined
with mustard-yellow merchants’ houses, and beaches a few kilometres away. It
owes its wonderfully well-preserved state to the silting-up of the Thu Bon
river in the 19th century, which put an end to its importance as a trading
post, but helped it escape modern development and US bombing. Yes, it’s
touristy, but the old town is surprisingly extensive and can absorb a lot of
visitors without losing its dreamy atmosphere. And while much of Vietnam, to
both north and south, gets a thorough soaking in summer, the central coast is
at its driest and sunniest in May, June and July.
Due to its new
officially award as recognised Food Capital of Viet Nam. Worldchefs has
