In his speech, Ambassador Ly Duc Trung briefed participants on Vietnam’s distinctive cuisine, including Phở, as well as major ingredients to make the dish that is popular among foreigners worldwide.

To organize the event, he said the Vietnamese Embassy had invited chefs of Sofitel Metropole hotel in Hanoi to give instructions to chefs of Attilio cooking school via video conferencing. All the ingredients had been prepared by the Vietnamese embassy’s staff.

The diplomat expressed his hope that the event would give participants a greater understanding of Phở, to help bring the traditional Vietnamese dish closer to international friends and local people.

The introduction of Vietnamese Phở is part of activities in celebration of Israel’s Independence Day (April 26), and 30 years of diplomatic ties between Vietnam and Israel (July 12) this year.
