About Viet Nam...

Vietnam is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. It is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest, Cambodia to the southwest, and the South China Sea, referred to as East Sea (Vietnamese: Biển Đông), to the east. With a population of over 86 million, Vietnam is the 13th most populous country in the world.

Last year, an Australian film crew shot 10 episodes of a series entitled “Luke Nguyen’s Vietnam in HCM City,” which focused on local specialties in central and southern Vietnam.

Luke Nguyen is a famous Vietnamese-Australian chef. In 2002, Nguyen and his sister opened their first restaurant, the Red Lantern Restaurant, serving Vietnamese food in Sydney’s Surry Hills. The Red Lantern soon won critical acclaim and a number of awards including the Restaurant and Catering Industry Association of Australia’s Best Restaurant awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008.

In 2009, he returned to Vietnam with an Australian film crew, including director Michael Francis Donnelly, to shoot the 10-episode series about Vietnamese cuisine.

"I’ve tried many Vietnamese dishes at Luke’s restaurants and some other restaurants in Australia,” Donnelly said. “The food is delicious, nutritious and tasty. But Vietnamese cuisine is even more abundant in Vietnam, much more than what I saw or enjoyed in Australia."

"I’m surprised by the varied and mobile forms of food business in Vietnam. The processing methods are sometimes so simple. The prices are cheap, but the food is fresh and nutritious," he added.

During his trips to Vietnam, Donnelly learned one thing: Fresh food is never lacking in Vietnamese kitchens, while it is difficult to find in Western kitchens.

"I have shot many films about food,” he said. “I believe that the audience will feel as interested as we do. Not only the food, but also the beautiful landscapes and friendly people will surprise them. As far as Luke is concerned, I believe that he will become a ‘TV star’ in food after this programme.”

Nguyen and his film crew not only focused on Vietnam’s food but the country’s culture and lifestyle, visiting bustling local markets and street vendors.

On this trip, they traveled to eight provinces and cities in the north of Vietnam to make the series. The important things they focused on were Vietnamese cooking methods and stories behind the dishes, not only the recipes. They shot memorable scenes of a woman selling pho (noodle soup) that she prepared in her small shop early in the morning, Donnelly said.

"In Australia, people are familiar with Chinese and Thai food," Nguyen said. "I want people to get to know Vietnamese food through this show. I want them to know that Vietnam has good food, good people and beautiful scenery. The biggest goal in my life is to prove to the world that Vietnamese food is the best!"

When the first series aired, many Australians got to know Vietnamese food and told Donnelly that they wanted to visit Vietnam to enjoy the pure cuisine. He said he is proud that the series won audiences’ hearts, and even without prepared scripts, they were successful. They simply filmed everything that inspired them.
