    Ginger soup sounds good for Winter here!:))

  2. Susan says:

    I love ginger in everything. What a light, clear, refreshing soup! It must be wonderful for summer even though it is served hot.

  3. Little Nutbrown Hare says:

    I agree! Fish sauce is magic, like kecap manis. I crave for simple food like that sometimes. And the glass pate you used in the last picture, looks like something my mum had. Nostalgia…

    Gorgeous photos, Anh.

    Everything sounds just delicious, but I am especially intrigued by the idea of stir-fried pumpkin leaves. I always grow winter squash which has similar leaves, so I will have to try cooking them next summer. (And even when you say they are bad, your photos are always great!)

  6. Lydia says:

    I have never tasted stir-fried pumpkin leaves — what a lovely idea! As always, your photos are mouthwatering.

    Wow Anh! What a fresh, lovely dinner. And, hats off to your mom for bringing such freshness to her table daily! Such lovely photos with beautiful back drops and like the others, those pumpkin leaves have my attention!

    This is beautiful, Anh.

    Well, I don’t know where to start.

    I love it, Anh. You;re a constant source of inspiration for me – Your use of exciting ingredients and unique approach to photography.

  12. Anh says:

    Asha, thanks buddie!

  13. Callipygia says:

    oh the dishes look so good. I am going to try the tofu with fish sauce. And I imagine the pumpkin leaves tasting like larger pea shoots? Do you have to scrub off the little bristley hairs?

  14. Andaliman says:

    Lovely.. fish ohh fish yummy…

  15. tigerfish says:

    I like all your summer meals. I can have these everyday :)

  16. Anh says:

    Callipygia, thanks. Ya, you should srub off the little little bristley hairs. But the recipe I link to provides a good method to cook pumpkin leaves, too.

    You’ve used the black background to the utmost advantage, looks lovely! I was playing around with that, too, trying to get a last minute noodle shot… However, something livelier than dried noodles look much better on black!

    I haven´t tried pumpkin leaves, how does the taste like?. Nice photos Anh!

  19. Oh for the love of food! says:

    What a satisfying meal this is, Anh!

  20. Figs Olives Wine says:

    Just exquisite Anh! I have to tell you, I become saturated with the rich flavors of autumn so quickly – the leaves and stems of pumpkin appeal much more right now than the gourd itself! Never knew you could eat them, and I can’t wait to try! I’ll definitely be making this soup too – it looks utterly rejuvenating. Thank you so much!

    I don’t know which of these dishes sounds best to me. I think I must have all three! Even if it’s nearly winter where I live.
