    You may want to revise the question so as not to be a duplicate of cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/1366/… ... it looks like that thread addresses the first (nuoc mam) half of your question. – JustRightMenus Aug 20 '10 at 21:53
  • Thanks, I missed that! Although actually I might reopen this as a question specifically about Vietnamese food - I don't think I'll be putting worcherstire sauce in nuoc cham :) – Michael Natkin Aug 21 '10 at 0:18
