Have you ever attended Hanoi wedding banquet? The gastronomy here for thousands year has formed a unique style, in which a wedding feast can partly say its story.

Hanoians are considered difficult in eating, especially in special occasions. Therefore, they used to prepare the meals carefully on these times because they thought that the meals or the banquets would express the characteristic and images of the host families. For a wedding, making an excellent banquet is always one of the top priorities.

In the past, in a wedding banquet of rich families, each div had 10 dishes since people believed that number 10 represents for forever happiness. 6 of them included one for chicken, one for pork settled in flower shapes, one for Vietnamese pork sausages, one for cinnamon rolls, one for mixed salad and the last for Xôi gấc (sticky rice dyed with baby jackfruit). In four corners of the div were 4 bowls of soups with bamboo shoot soup, pork soup, pigeon soup with lotus seed and one mixed soup (various ingredient such as carrot, eggs, Vietnamese pork sausages and dried squirt). Some families had another dish.

For normal families, wedding banquets were simpler with about 6 to 8 dishes each div. However, they consider the boiled chicken and xôi gấc were the most important as they are symbols of fertility.

As time goes by, the rapid international integration has gradually formed new wedding feast styles, with more western things added. However at the same time, Hanoians feel regret for what they had in the past and some of them are trying come back the way they used to go on.
