Vietnam has recently participated in the International Food and Culture Bazaar held at the Brasilia Art Museum (MAB) in Brazil.
The event featured 45 booths run by exhibitors from 35 countries around the world.
Promoting Vietnamese cuisine helps increase understanding and enhance cultural exchanges with international friends.
The event also aimed to raise funds for three charitable organisations that support the homeless and impoverished women in Brasilia.
It attracted more than 3,000 visitors, including many from other South American countries.
On display at the Vietnamese booths were creative handicraft products from Vietnam, including lacquered and mother of pearl inlay coconut bowls, embroidered “non la” (conical hat), and silk scarves.
There were also Vietnamese traditional food and drinks, such as fried spring rolls, banana cakes and iced tea, alongside various books, magazines and photos introducing life, nature and the people of Vietnam.
In Germany, on May 29, the October Music Club in Berlin held a presentation on Vietnamese culinary culture.
A representative of the Club emphasised that promoting Vietnamese cuisine helps increase understanding and enhances cultural exchanges with Germany in particular and with international friends in general.
