“The Crossword competition is part of the Golden Spoon Contest and was organized by Minh Long I Co. Ltd. Competitors enjoyed entering the competition which also provided information and advice on the use of spices in Vietnamese cuisine as well as knowledge on Vietnamese culinary matters. Mr Ly Huy Sang, vice president of Minh Long I Co. Ltd and director of Ly’s Horeca, acted as an advisor on its compilation.

“The Crossword contest provided interesting information. One answer, for example, helped to explain the use of “Mắc khén”, a key spice used in the northwest of the country, and vital to local dishes. It is used to season fish or meat and brings an authenticity to dishes from this area. “Mắc khén” reminded me of trips taken with my mother to the northwest, to sell items for the family. I have often had the opportunity to sample delicious meals in which the use of “Mắc khén” and also fresh cardamom, was prevalent.” said Ms Ngoc Bich – a reader born in Hanoi, but now living in HCM City.
