How To Save Water in Daily Life

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Water is one of the most important resources for preserving life. However, it is also one of the most undervalued things there is in the world. In many developed countries, we tend to take water for granted because it flows easily out of the faucet. We use water without really thinking about it. It even seems strange that many people have no problem leaving the faucet running but we would go to war if someone tried to steal our oil. Since about 70% of the Earth’s surface is water-covered, many people can’t help but wonder – Why should we save

Welcome to Hoi An, the most magical place in Southeast Asia

by Milly Tamati @ Blogabout

After spending 5 years traversing the globe, I’ve developed a permanent addiction to chasing the next new thing. New cities, new foods, new cultures. I get antsy at the thought of going over trodden ground when there’s so much more of the world to explore. There is however, one exception to this. The place that after returning time after time still makes my heart sing: Hoi An. These are just some of the reasons Hoi An takes the cake as one of the most beautiful places in Asia! The Architecture With humble beginnings as small port town before exploding into a major port on the silk route, wandering the streets of Hoi An is like taking a walk through over 1000 years of history. Becoming a UNESCO world heritage site in 1999, the melting pot of Japanese, Chinese and French architecture is exceptionally well preserved. Unlike other Vietnamese cities which are chaotic and incredibly busy, Hoi An has a very serene atmosphere. Instead of high rise buildings and endless motorbikes, Hoi An is a kaleidoscope of pretty pastel hues and lanterns of every colour. Live music in the street sets the perfect scene to take an evening stroll along the […]

Political Economy of Food Price Volatility: The Case of Vietnam and Rice | American Journal of Agricultural Economics | Oxford Academic

Political Economy of Food Price Volatility: The Case of Vietnam and Rice | American Journal of Agricultural Economics | Oxford Academic


OUP Academic

This article argues that the structure of the Vietnamese rice export system is, in political economy terms, a rational response to the volatility present in the international rice market. In particular, it is argued that the Vietnamese Food Agency, along with VINAFOOD-1 and VINAFOOD-2, have been structured so that they can benefit from the domestic demands for export restrictions anticipated to occur as a consequence of international price volatility and the psychological demand of consumers for price stability. In turn, the actions of these agencies also contribute to international price volatility and the resulting demand for export restrictions. Since the political and economic elite in Vietnam obtain both political and economic power from this system, it is unlikely to be replaced with more effective and efficient policies to combat domestic price volatility. Thus, continued volatility in the price of rice can be expected.

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef

Vietnamese "Pho" Rice Noodle Soup with Beef


Epicurious

Pho Bo Editor's note: The recipe and introductory text below are excerpted from Mai Pham's book Pleasures of the Vietnamese Table. Pham also shared some helpful cooking tips exclusively with Epicurious, which we've added at the bottom of the page. To read more about Pham and Vietnamese cuisine, click here. This beloved noodle soup is a complete meal in itself and is best served for breakfast or lunch on a weekend. Because the simmering takes at least two hours, I like to prepare the broth a day ahead of time and keep it in the refrigerator, where it will last for three days. Many cookbooks call for it to be made with oxtail bones, but I prefer marrow bones and beef chuck, which is what pho cooks in Vietnam use. A good pho broth needs to be clear, not muddy and dark, certainly fragrant of beef, anise and ginger. You can serve this soup with several toppings, but the easiest ones to prepare at home are cooked and raw beef. To use broth that has been made in advance, bring it to a boil, then add fresh ginger to refresh it. Come serving time, get friends or family to help cook the noodles and assemble the bowls. Make sure that the broth is boiling hot and the bowls preheated. Allow about 1 part noodles to 3 parts broth for each bowl.

Voluntourism With A View In The Heart Of Cinque Terre

by Busabout @ Blogabout

On October 25, 2011, a devastating storm wreaked havoc on Italy’s Cinque Terre region. Vernazza, one of the five picturesque towns, was flooded and landslides buried it in more than 4 metres of mud and debris. In the week after the storm, Ruth co-founded Save Vernazza in hopes of restoring her adopted home to its former splendour once more. We sat down for a chat with her to find out more about what’s behind this exciting voluntourism project. The project started out as Save Vernazza after the 2011 floods. How has it evolved over the years? What began as a restoration effort has now become one of conservation. We partnered with Busabout and TreadRight to create the Turisti Nei Cian (Tourists In The Wild) Voluntourism Project. So far 1032 travellers have joined 121 excursions to help 20 landowners restore Vernazza’s beautiful, fragile territory since 2013. Vernazza’s town centre has been rebuilt following the emergency but Vernazza’s fragile territory continues to need help. Maintaining the territory is critical to avoid further erosion, prevent additional landslides and also to preserve a way of life that is centuries old.

A Beginner’s Guide to Composting at Home

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Composting is nature’s own waste management process that nutrients are recycled back into an ecosystem. In other words, it is the process of taking organic materials, such as leaves, vegetables, fruits, logs, eggshells, coffee grounds, banana peels and dead animals and placing them in a pile or container along with water. In the composting time, you will turn your pile periodically to encourage the beneficial bacteria to thrive. This will create high heat and breaks down the natural organic materials over time into a dark, rich, fertile soil that gardeners fondly nickname Black Gold. By composting at home, we cannot only

Water Conservation for Kids

by Marie Rattray @ quiet hut

Water makes up more than two-thirds of the weight of the human body, around 50-75%. Babies and kids often have more water (as a percentage) than adults – being born at about 78%. So water is the most essential to our survival, next to air. In fact, a person can survive for 8 weeks without food but without water, he or she will not be able to survive for more than 5 days. Water is not only essential to the human body, it also plays a vital role in our daily lives. We use water to do countless things such

48 hours in… Grunau

by Ben Duff @ Blogabout

Grunau, Austria; a tiny but incredibly picturesque village hidden away in the Austrian alps, surrounded by lakes and mountains. It’s easy to make friends for life here in Grunau but you’ll have to stay a few days to find out why! With plenty of activities to get your blood pumping and plenty of space to spread out a blanket or lounge chair to relax in, trust me, this place will be right up your alley. Now this picture might not be enough to make you want to visit, but perhaps we can persuade you… The Accommodation Probably one of the best reasons to visit is the wonderfully Austrian and uniquely Treehouse. Run by ex-chef Gerhard and his family, this ramshackle traditional old house really feels like a home. There’s been many people over the years that have experienced the comforts of the bedrooms, the glorious surroundings and the pure sincerity of the welcome they receive from Gerhard & Co. The dogs run freely through the garden down to the river and into the neighbouring fields without a worry, and you can too. Those that only stop for lunch often find themselves wandering a little far from the house as they follow […]

The latest film from Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, The Vietnam War, premieres on WTTW11 and wttw.com on Sunday, September 17. Perhaps it’s an appropriate time for a look at Vietnamese cuisine, which is a distinctly aromatic combination of disparate flavors and textures designed to engage all five senses. It is a compendium of culinary contrasts: sweet and sour, mild and spicy, cold and hot – a true example, if you will, of yin and yang. If your idea of good eating is a little bit of everything (with a generous amount of fish sauce!), you should definitely give this cuisine a try.

Food frames travelling, marketing each point set to rest, perceive and nourish. From the moment we taste something new, to the time we arrive home and tell everyone they “…have to try this!” We’ve kicked off on a food journey, and there’s no better place to try new food than Vietnam. One of the best things about Vietnam is the incredible street food; however a common anxiety is the fear of food poisoning. It’s a common misconception that street food will be sole cause for an upset tummy, resulting in discomfort and annoyance that can interrupt and ruin a day’s sightseeing. However, street food is the safest bet for fresh cuisine. A good rule of thumb is to follow where the locals eat. A dingy little food cart that serves noodles from a communal pot but is overflowing with customers and bustling with noise, is much more trustworthy than an expensive make shift Western restaurant in the main tourist district! Street food is so indicative of local delicacies, how foods are traditionally cooked and cheap-cheap in price! It’s a no-brainer you’ll have your best food experiences for $2 from a little cart on the side of a market street. If …
