Press – traditional Gio Glutinous rice cake

My article on Afamily – the most searched recipes in Vietnam – about gio-glutinous-rice-cake. Gio means ash, the cake is named after it because it’s the ash from burning herbs is an irreplaceable part of it, a humble traditional and subtle cake mastered by my grand-mum.

We couldn’t find this amazing version in the market. Now a day, people commercialise it and the quality is alarming. Long to the Tet – vietnamese new year to taste it again.
