Legend has it that Lac Long Quan taught the Vietnamese people to farm and cook sticky rice. He is credited with the unique approach to cooking lam, a sticky rice delicacy. The rice grains are funneled into hollow bamboo pipes, which are then immersed in water, and finally grilled. Lam is possible the most delicious form of glutinous rice and if you haven’t tasted it yet, get moving!
