Traveling Gourmet: The Nam Hai Goes Farm-to-Table

Vietnam's Nam Hai is going farm-to-table. We hear that the hotel has recently turned a plot of land into an herb and vegetable garden, the bounty of which is being incorporated into gourmet dishes and exotic drinks.

The garden turns out a fresh supply of red basil, lemongrass and mustard lettuce. Executive Chef Conrado Tromp says, "The Vietnamese have subscribed to the 'farm-to-table' approach, as the West likes to call it, for centuries. Most meals are still prepared in this fashion. We're just embracing the culture that surrounds us."
