I love this recipe book. Have tried at least 8 of the recipes, and to rave reviews from family and friends. Fresh ingredients, easy recipes, and wonderful results!
Ethnically, I am part Vietnamese and grew up eating a diverse combination of classically American and Vietnamese dishes. Like many Vietnamese cooks my mother didn't use measuring devices, incorporating a more free form way of creating dishes. I like having a recipe as a foundation for my cooking. I take many liberties with all recipes in my kitchen. Come to think of it, I doubt I have ever followed a recipe to the tee. They serve as inspiration more than anything. That being said, I really like this book. It is colorful and simple. If you follow the recipes exactly, I would imagine your results would be quite good. The spiral-binding makes it easy to use. The basic sauces, marinades and glossary are informative and not too extensive. Everything a home cook needs to know.
They do make this a very easy to follow book. I never realized just how simple these dishes really were. Some of the more specific ingredients were a little challenging to find in my area but not impossible. I usually just stick with the pho when I go out just because the stuff is so addicting and delicious. These other recipes however are really great. Love it!
I'm VN and can't cook. Most of the dishes is okay, but not great/authentic. I'm okay with this. The best part is for a very busy person, the preparation is low and the food list is few. So, you'll love it. Again, not authentic, but fine and prep low. Still a win-win.
This has many of the traditional Vietnamese dishes, but they have been simplified (or clarified) for American preparation. They are easy to follow and delicious.
The book arrived quickly and in excellent condition. The recipes are beautifully photographed and easy to follow. The book was shorter than I expected.
I keep looking at this book all the time...the recipes are easy to follow and the photos are mouth watering...I love this little book!
Book was in great condition and had some great recipes, that were easy and fun to make, pictures were a nice touch.
