When I was in Vietnam in 2009 I came across the burger restaurant Daniel had opened with his vietnamese partner.I ate there and it was so much better than any other western food sold in vietnam. I was travelling alone and Daniel sat in the guestroom with his laptop so we had a little chat and he did show me some of the pictures of this book which wasnt out back then.I was impressed just from the pictures so when I came back home I ordered my copy of the book.So far I tried 8 or 10 recipes from the book and they are (even if u dont take all of the ingredients) so close to the things I ate in the streets of vietnam.So the recipes are great.Another thing I really like about the book are the pictures of the cooked food and the pictures from market places in Vietnam. These pictures are full of life and Im always happen when I open up that book.Sorry for my english Im from germany :-)
Very Nice Cookbook with great pictures. Tried the Grilled Pork Ribs first and it was really tasty and everybody liked it. Will definitely cook it again. All other recipes are really interesting and very easy to follow with ingredients that can easily be bought in the grocery. Will most likely try cooking almost all of the recipes.Great vietnamese cookbook!!! It's a Keeper!!! Kudos to the author!!!
I was lucky enough to actually do a culinary tour with Mr. Hoyer in Hanoi. We had wonderful meals at Produce Markets to Streetside Cafes to wonderful, refreshing Vietnamese Iced Coffees! I would highly recommend this book not only for the fabulous recipes but for the photo tour of this beautiful city and it's amazing people!
What a wonderful cookbook and I went shopping at a local Vietnamese market and bought so many things. I decided to make Bo Kho. This recipe is quite delicious and I look forward to making each one in this book. UPDATE..... TADA! I indeed made Bo Kho and loved every bite. I did not have the carrots for color and texture so I used potatoes and orange bell pepper. Adding the pepper in last kept it still crunchy and the potatoes worked fine too. This is a lovely cookbook and I recommend it to anyone that really wants to cook authentic Vietnamese foods.
Amazing tour. It made our trip to Vietnam really special. Daniels knowledge and culinary experience are realized from the time you meet him until the end of the tour.
My husband and I met Daniel while taking a small group (6) market and sampling tour in Hanoi in January. Daniel had a copy of his book with him. Now asthen the pictures are outstanding and the help with substitue ingredients helpful. If I had my way there would be more recepies included. However the book is a joy to revisit, page through, and use for it is beautiful and reflects Daniel's culinary knowledge and appreciation of Vietnamese food.It is currently one of my numerous cookbooks and is off the shelf for easy visitation.Nancy Bear
Attractive and packed with recipes to be tried. Some are relatively simple; others more challenging, but all with the distinctive flavours. A must have for an adventurous cook's library.
