There is a very good reason for beginning with Hanoian cooking. Hà Nội has been a centre of Vietnamese culture for many centuries. As early as the third century BC, the Âu Lạc Kingdom chose Cổ Loa on the suburbs of present-day Hà Nội to be its capital. Since Việt Nam regained its independence in 939 from 1,000 years of Chinese rule, different Vietnamese governments have chosen Hà Nội as the capital city of the country, except the Đinh in the 10th century and Nguyễn in the late 19th and first half of the 20th century. The multiple layers of this long history from the foundation on which Hanoian cooking rests.
