Co-hosted by the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Institute of Cultural Exchange with France (IDECAF), the Ho Chi Minh City Food & Beverage Association (FBA) and the SPC, the event drew leaders and staff of representative agencies from the UK, Australia, Belarus, Cambodia, Hungary, Indonesia, New Zealand, Japan, China and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) who cooked beef, lamb, and vegan ‘pho’.

Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Foreign Affairs Pham Tran Thanh Thao said the exchange activity, in response to Vietnam’s Day of Pho on December 12, enables diplomats and their families to explore and spread the essence of Vietnamese culinary culture, and the secrets of making delicious ‘pho’ to the international community.

After finishing the class, the agencies were given certificates and participated in a gathering to enjoy the noodle soup. They also had the chance to visit a photo display and try various complimentary dishes at the event.
