Synopsis: With its array of provocative tastes and intriguing textures, Vietnamese food is becoming popular in Western cookery. But while the flavour combinations seem complex, the preparation techniques are deceptively simple, as Vietnamese chef Binh Duong and food writer Marcia Kiesel reveal in this book. With more than 150 authentic dishes ranging from coral lobster and beefy Hanoi soup to crunchy happy pancakes and sweet potato nests with shrimp, the recipes provide everything any cook needs to know to prepare a Vietnamese meal.
From Publishers Weekly:
This excellent introduction to Vietnamese cooking will provide a good starting place for ignoramuses and a stock of useful recipes for know-it-alls. Duong, owner and chef of Truc Orient Express restaurant in Hartford, Conn., and Kiesel, of Food & Wine magazine, carefully itemize preferred equipment and the many ingredients used in Vietnamese dishes. Recipes appeal not just with their delicate interplay of flavors and textures, but with a golden opportunity to alter one's diet. Vegetables, spices and rice make up the bulk of a meal. And, as with most Asian fare, meats and fish are used to flavor, not to dominate, a dish. Several intriguing Buddhist vegetarian recipes are included. All are well organized, and directions are easily navigated. Some recipes may call for as many as 15 ingredients, so be prepared to spend some time chopping and measuring. Cooking time is quite brief. Because Vietnamese cookery relies on many exotic items--tamarind pulp, starfruit, tiger lily buds, pandan leaves--the authors have thoughtfully provided a mail-order reference source.
