Making spring rolls is like making pancakes: you have to get a feel for it, and until you do, you have to be willing to give up your unsuccessful efforts to the kitchen gods. Since this recipe yields 40 rolls, it's okay if the first few are "experiments." These spring rolls, originally featured in "The Art of Eating in Vietnam," a 1996 SAVEUR story reported from Saigon by Mary Ann Eagle, are similar to those you'll find at casual restaurants across that city.
