We know that there seems to be a made-up holiday for just about every type of food, but Banh Mi Day is a nosh fest we'd gladly support.

Downtown's Grand Central Market is honoring the delicious Vietnamese sandwich on October 10 by having some of their food vendors sell unique and creative banh mi creations. Andrea Nguyen, author of The Banh Mi Handbook, will also be giving some cooking demonstrations.

According to the Grand Central Market's website, these food purveyors will be selling their banh mi creations all day:

Horse Thief BBQ - smoked pork belly banh mi Belcampo Meat Co. - duck banh mi

Eggslut - Asian omelet banh mi

DTLA Cheese - chicken liver on toast banh mi

Valerie at GCM - smoked salmon banh mi

G&B Coffee - Vietnamese iced tea

From 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., Nguyen will be demonstrating how to make banh mi (in all its spicy, pickled veggie goodness) with recipes from her own cookbook and using ingredients from Grand Central Market vendors, including carnitas from Villa Moreliana. And guys, there will also be food tastings available, too, during her demonstration. This event is free.
