About this title

Synopsis:

An intimate collection of more than 175 of the finest Vietnamese recipes.

When author Andrea Nguyen's family was airlifted out of Saigon in 1975, one of the few belongings that her mother hurriedly packed for the journey was her small orange notebook of recipes. Thirty years later, Nguyen has written her own intimate collection of recipes, Into the Vietnamese Kitchen, an ambitious debut cookbook that chronicles the food traditions of her native country.

Robustly flavored yet delicate, sophisticated yet simple, the recipes include steamy pho noodle soups infused with the aromas of fresh herbs and lime; rich clay-pot preparations of catfish, chicken, and pork; classic bánh mì sandwiches; and an array of Vietnamese charcuterie. Nguyen helps readers shop for essential ingredients, master core cooking techniques, and prepare and serve satisfying meals, whether for two on a weeknight or 12 on a weekend.

From the Publisher:

* A landmark collection of more than 175 classic Vietnamese recipes, framed by stories of one family’s home kitchen and a wealth of information on the regional cuisines, essential ingredients, and culinary traditions of the country. * Illustrated with more than 50 stunning color photographs, this is the first comprehensive full-color cookbook devoted to Vietnamese food in the English language. * One of the world’s most elegant cuisines is also one of the most healthful and easy to prepare. Many dishes take less than 45 minutes from prep to pan to table and require just a handful of ingredients.
