Workshop highlights cultural value of Vietnamese banh mi

A workshop took place on October 11 in Ho Chi Minh City to discuss the journey of the banh mi, a kind of Vietnamese sandwich, from culinary cultural exchange to the value of a national brand.

In his speech, Thanh Nien Newspaper’s Editor-in-chief Nguyen Ngoc Toan said in addition to helping to honour Vietnamese culinary culture, the workshop was also a forum for researchers and food experts to present their research results on the history of the banh mi, thereby affirming the difference between banh mi and other forms of bread and sandwich in the world.
