What is real Vietnamese cooking?

How do you define a cuisine with the breadth and depth of Vietnamese food? A cuisine that has been informed by centuries of culinary influences ranging from French and Chinese cooking to Khmer and Cham food traditions. Andreas Pohl and Tracey Lister feel that the most fitting phrase to describe the common characteristics within all that diversity is 'understated elegance', because as a national cuisine, Vietnamese dishes combine simplicity with sophistication.
