I don't come across too many Vietnamese cookbooks, so I was pretty happy when I came across this one. This book is pretty well rounded in that there are a lot of recipes (I counted about 49). The categories are Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Desserts. I've been looking for a good recipe for Pho Soup, and the one in this cookbook is good. Also for vegetarians, there is a recipe for Vietnamese Cabbage and Tofu Salad that is packed with flavorful ingredients.I have to admit, there are some ingredients I'm not familiar with. For example the Chinese brown sugar called for in the recipe for Ginger Chicken was new to me. It turns out that it's essentially unrefined sugar that has been caramelized. I am Hispanic and, to me, it sounds like Pilloncillo... also a sort of caramelized brown sugar that often comes cone shaped.ONE NOTE TO THE EDITOR: When paging through the book, my Kindle gets stuck on Lemongrass Beef with Egg. The only way I can get around that is to slide the page selection bar at the bottom of my screen or to use one of the links in the table of contents. I'm not sure if the problem lies with me, but just a heads up.In any case, I found this to be a good introduction to Vietnamese cooking. I'll warn you that there really aren't many pictures in this book, so just be aware of that if that's a deal breaker when buying a cookbook. In fairness, I downgraded my review to four stars for lack of pictures.
Great selection of recipes!
