Overview

An intimate collection 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.

Dozens of flavorful recipes. Definitely a change from western cuisine. Includes a fairly comprehensive guide to buying unusual ingredients - like fish sauce - at the local Asian market. Every time I've served one of the featured dishes to guests or taken one to a pot luck people have been really impressed. Also serves as an introduction to the fascinating and beautiful world of Vietnam. The recipes are not that involved and do not require special equipment.
