Easy step by step directions on what to do and how to prepare each meal. Great book for beginners and people who want to learn other cultural food. Some of the ingredient maybe a little scary to work with but trust me, it comes out lovely.
If you like periplus cookbooks and already own "the food of" version of this book, then reconsider buying this one. The new "authentic recipes from" series is just a rehash of the "food of series" with a few subtle changes such as relacing obscure recipes with more recognisable ones, bigger font and format, less on the history and some updated pictures.Overall I kind of like the recipes in the new books more as there is less filler and odd recipes, but I do like the layout and format of the older hardcover "food of" books. So if you own "the food of" and want to get this book, be prepared to sell it off as you will only end up doubling up 90% of recipes between the 2.
This is a very good book to learn cooking Asian, particulary Vietnamese food, of which I'm a big fan. The recipes are great, some of the ingredients needed are hard to find in this rinky-dink town I live in, but I manage, sooner or later. You cannot go wrong with this in my opinion. Enjoy!!!
What a terrific book! The recipes are succintly worded and truly authentic. The photography is so excellent, you want to devour the pages. An excellent follow-up to my recent visit to Vietnam.Chef James
