NDO – A programme on processing and performing 50 dishes from eel, which is the highlight of the International Tourism Gastronomy Culture Festival - Nghe An 2019, was recognised in the Vietnam Book of Records, on July 18.

The event is considered as an opportunity for Nghe An province to promote the image of gastronomic culture to domestic and international friends.

Eel is not only a favorite dish of Nghe An but also a specialty for tourists. Using natural catching methods, with its high nutritional factor being a precious medicine, fresh-eel is the first choice when it comes to Nghe An cuisine. It is a culinary dish with a strong flavour of the country.

At the International Tourism Gastronomy Culture Festival - Nghe An 2019, visitors have an opportunity to enjoy 50 eel dishes by 25 famous chefs and artisans from across the country.

According to food experts, Nghe An’s eel dishes are not much different than eel dishes in other provinces; what makes the difference is the processing. Eels chosen to prepare dishes are usually fresh-eel, uneven size, and bright yellow. Eels must be processed immediately after being purchased and must be used up the same day, so that the eel meat will remain delicious, sweet, firm and cool.
