Andrea Nguyen has a new cookbook, The Banh Mi Handbook.  Lots of cook-off worthy recipes there, most likely. I'm considering it...


Thanks for the heads up on this. Her books are usually excellent.

A great idea from Andrea's web site (and it's in the book):  banh mi crostini

 

I'd been looking for ways to use surplus pate, and this struck me as brilliantly simple and delicious. Sorry for the sloppy photo:

If you have appropriate leftovers, it is easy and quick to put these together: season some mayo, make some quick pickles (I used cukes and carrots), slice some jalapenos and snip some cilantro. In little time, I had bite-size banh mi flavor, perfect for snacking or offering with drinks.

 

Of course this isn't just for leftovers, you can make fillings specifically for a banh mi party as Andrea did.

This looks excellent and certainly overcomes the problem of being unable to find/make banh mi bread!

That's a great dish--Banh Mi Crostini.  Wonderful idea for a party.

I dont really want to Huff and Puff here too much:

 

but I noticed something while in BOS at the dentist:

 

I stopped by my favorite Banh Mi establishment in Chinatown.

 

I got a double order of the 'traditional' Banh Mi, w extra mayo/pate and lots of green chili.

 

after all, after the Titanium was Screwed In, I thought Id be 'out of Oral Commission' for a Bit

 

I ate both in a little part in Chinatown  ( Cement , cement tables w some sort of Chinese Game etched on the top )

 

beautiful day.  shade  nice breeze

 

I needed that breeze as the small part was ( as usual ) will with Old Gents playing That Game

 

some sort of circular brown 'checkers' w symbols on them

 

and enough second hand smoke for a life time

 

but to get back to what I noticed :

 

in Chinatown BOS  no one seems to make the Bahn Mi ingredients.  at lease not the pate nor the 

 

pork terrine , you know the one with the crunchy Pig Ears in them etc

 

and the bun  

 

( point of my story , finally ) also was not made by the vendors.

 

the key seemed to be the heating up so all the crust could rain down on you !

 

Im no expert baker, but this seems to be the point of at least the BOS Banh Mi buns.
