TALKING POINTS AS PREPARED
• It’s a great honor to work with Fivimart and Chef Dieu Thao.
• Vietnam is famous the world over for it’s culinary scene. Even in Portland, the biggest city in Oregon, Vietnamese restaurants are among the most popular in town. While in Hanoi, our delegation has been taking every chance we can get to hit the streets and try as many dishes as possible.
• Oregon is famous across the world for its fresh foods. Whether it’s potatoes, pears, blueberries, our wine or our beers – our state takes great pride in the hard work our farmers have done to give Oregon it’s great reputation.
• So, this is a natural fit – Oregon’s most famous foods combined with Vietnam’s historic culinary tradition.
• I hope that you all enjoy the dishes we are about to prepare. Chef, let’s get started!
