the sweetest weekend

We all have had the bitter during the week but now comes
the sweet with the inspirational image of Bánh Chung rice
cakes ready to be boiled at Tranh Khuc village outside Hanoi. 
The traditional cake is a true delicacy of the highly
rated Vietnamese cuisine yet what I like the most is 
the way it's carefully wrapped between lá dong leaves
as tight as possibile into perfect square shapes.
Wishing to all of you the sweetest weekend
you had always craved.

  1. Dearest Elisabetta,

    Anything sweet or otherwise from Vietnam I LOVE. My Vietnamese-American friend Lei prepared so many different dishes for us and we also tasted at Vietnamese restaurants.
    Have a lovely Sunday!
