Banh Chung plays an essential role in Vietnam Tet holiday. The square shape, the fragrance, the glossy green of rice and the sight of yellow mung beans all evoke special memories of Tet. This photo series will take us to the making of Banh Chung in a remote village of Hanoi, where all generations of a family take part in the process. The young and the old share the excitement of Tet with their wrapping and boiling Banh Chung process.
