    Vietnamese Duo Abandons Street Food to Feed a Craving for Home Cooking

    If you happened to be among the 3,000 or so regulars following Ha’s Đậc Biệt on Instagram over the course of the pandemic, you probably noticed the transformation — as in watching the couple behind this four-year-old pop-up find themselves as cooks.  Anthony Ha and Sadie Mae Burns used to make what they called Vietnamese-style street food — threaded wooden skewers of grilled head-on shrimp, crackle-skinned porchetta banh mi, crispy rice and cabbage, a cold noodle salad in a paper boat garnished with peppery rau răm, a hard-to-source herb in NYC they had tracked down to one fridge in Chinatown.   Read More

    The Recorder – Vegetarian cafe finds healthy home in local food web

    The Pioneer Valley is in an interdependent web of community, and few things highlight that more clearly than the job of getting food to people.
