I've only been using "Vietnam" on my tablet so far, so I can't tell you how it looks on a Kindle, but on my tablet it's excellent. There's always the worry that Kindle editions of recipe books will be dreadful, with eye gougingly terrible layouts or just looking dull as the dishwater you end up with after dinner (unless you have a dishwasher, in which case I'm completely envious of your shiny crockery, slovenly yet near instant post-dinner entertainment, lack of lower back pain or prune fingers). Vietnam doesn't have any such issues, it looks brilliant on my tablet, with beautiful photography (not just food porn you usually find in cookbooks, but actual travel photography from around Vietnam) which really make you want to explore the book fully.This book is divided into sections based on regions in Vietnam, so there's a section on Ho Chi Minh, Hoi An, Hanoi and many other places from North through to South Vietnam. Every section has starts with the various bits of information about the specific place in Vietnam itself which are relatively brief and very interesting. The sections aren't organised in any particular manner that I can see, there are chicken recipes followed by fish recipes, then beef, then back to chicken etc. This doesn't get in the way of exploring the recipes or finding them later. I've just bookmarked my favourite recipes so it's easy to find them. I've tried 3 or 4 recipes already and they've all worked out really well. The wonderful thing about Vietnamese cooking is there's a real freshness to it, everything comes together so well , it's smells amazing as you're cooking and tastes just as good, if not better once it's served.This is a comprehensive recipe book of Vietnamese cooking.
