Hanoi’s egg coffee has received numerous compliment for international media. Per a recent piece in The Guardian about the coffee, “It doesn’t taste of egg – more like vanilla – and while I can taste the coffee at the bottom of the cup, the egg part is surprisingly light-tasting and not at all sickly, though certainly sweet. The cold option, laden with ice, is more of a dessert and tastes like coffee ice-cream”. The hot version of egg coffee comes resting in a small dish of hot water to maintain its temperature. The strong coffee taste at the bottom of the cup seeps through the egg -- the yellow layer on top -- and is quite thick and sweet, though not sickly. And now, the page Cultura Colectiva+ published a video clip about how to make this drink: … [Read more...] about How to make Hanoi`s egg coffee?
UNESCO has given feedback about Vietnam’s ca tru file. Director of the Music Institute, Le Toan, talked about the compilation of the ca tru file and how to restore this art. We had to stop compiling the ca tru file for a long time in 2006 because UNESCO changed the form of recognition of intangible hertigages. Did we have to amend the file much to fit new criteria? We had been compiling the file for over one year when UNESCO changed its criteria for choosing heritages. We had to add more information to the file, but the old data was not redundant. There is a controversy about the birth of ca tru. Some say that it appeared in the 11th century and others say in the 15th century. What is the Music Institute’s opinion about it? Historical documents dating back to the 11th century have some words about ca tru but they are unclear. It was not until the 15th century when ca tru flourished to become a type of art. The most important part of the file is the … [Read more...] about How to restore ca tru?
