As far as my recipes are concerned, I always like to get inspired when travelling and then incorporate my experiences into my cooking at home. This results in simple but interesting fusion dishes. One of my favourite foodie countries so far has been Vietnam. I love the fresh flavours they achieve with all the herbs. And that’s exactly what you can taste in these noodles.
The carrot – or “rüebli” in Switzerland – belongs to the umbellifer family and has an extraordinarily high carotene content. The healthy root gets its orange colour from beta-carotene. However, the carotene is not what gives the carrot its name. The name comes from “carota”. This means “burnt” in German, which is a reference to the colour of the root in ancient times: back then, the root was still purple.
