A Stir The Pots Post

Bahn Mi

by | Apr 24, 2016 | Bread, Food, sandwich

Bahn Mi is the Vietnamese sandwich that captures that nation's delicate flavors combined with remnants of its French colonial past . Below is my home made version. It's a  baguette filled with Southeast Asian umami fillings which can include anything from grilled beef to liver pate, along with carrots, pickles and condiments. Recently I found  a recipe from Alberto Adria that used some modernist ingredients, namely flourless tirsol.  A powder usually used for frying foods, it is used with Banh Mi to crispen the crust. Adapting it with sourdough, here's my first Bahn Mi. Pretty damned tasty!
