The Little Viet Kitchen
Author: Thuy Diem Pham
Publisher: Bloomsbury Publishing
"As a child we had nothing and the value of every meal, therefore, was so important to us – this has shaped my love and perspective on food.†? Born in a small village in the south of Vietnam, Thuy was surrounded by food and she grew up amidst livestock and fresh produce, with a wonderful variety of fruits, morning markets with freshly picked vegetables and the smells of traditional street food. It's these memories that are the foundation of her food philosophy and culinary creations, and her landmark London restaurant, The Little Viet Kitchen, brings this true taste of Vietnamese cuisine to Islington. It is here that Thuy, along with her husband Dave, has created a dining experience combining the best of restaurateur precision and flair with the comforts of the home kitchen. Embracing all elements of Vietnamese cuisine, Thuy's food enhances and showcases the natural textures and flavours of the organic ingredients she uses. Having moved to the UK aged seven, Thuy has a distinctive approach to Vietnamese cooking in the West, with an authentic core knowledge of Vietnamese culture and a deft understanding of the London restaurant and foodie scene, all of which is brought to life in these pages. Offering a fresh approach and insight into how to make the best of classic dishes and Vietnamese family favourites, it is Thuy's expertise and memories that are the heart of each and every recipe. This book delves into Thuy's journey from Vietnam to England, celebrating her love of Vietnamese cooking, culture and way of life and tantalizing the reader's tastebuds alongside their imaginations, turning everyone's kitchen into a Little Viet Kitchen. Beautiful photography by the brilliant David Loftus accompanies each recipe, all styled by Thuy herself.
An intimate collection of more than 175 of the finest Vietnamese recipes. When author Andrea Nguyen's family was airlifted out of Saigon in 1975, one of the few belongings that her mother hurriedly packed for the journey was her small orange notebook of recipes. Thirty years later, Nguyen has written her own intimate collection of recipes, INTO THE VIETNAMESE KITCHEN, an ambitious debut cookbook that chronicles the food traditions of her native country. Robustly flavored yet delicate, sophisticated yet simple, the recipes include steamy pho noodle soups infused with the aromas of fresh herbs and lime; rich clay-pot preparations of catfish, chicken, and pork; classic bánh mì sandwiches; and an array of Vietnamese charcuterie. Nguyen helps readers shop for essential ingredients, master core cooking techniques, and prepare and serve satisfying meals, whether for two on a weeknight or 12 on a weekend.
Vietnamese Home Cooking
Author: Charles Phan
Publisher: Ten Speed Press
In his eagerly awaited first cookbook, award-winning chef Charles Phan from San Francisco's Slanted Door restaurant introduces traditional Vietnamese cooking to home cooks by focusing on fundamental techniques and ingredients. When Charles Phan opened his now-legendary restaurant, The Slanted Door, in 1995, he introduced American diners to a new world of Vietnamese food: robustly flavored, subtly nuanced, authentic yet influenced by local ingredients, and, ultimately, entirely approachable. In this same spirit of tradition and innovation, Phan presents a landmark collection based on the premise that with an understanding of its central techniques and fundamental ingredients, Vietnamese home cooking can be as attainable and understandable as American, French, or Italian. With solid instruction and encouraging guidance, perfectly crispy imperial rolls, tender steamed dumplings, delicately flavored whole fish, and meaty lemongrass beef stew are all deliciously close at hand. Abundant photography detailing techniques and equipment, and vibrant shots taken on location in Vietnam, make for equal parts elucidation and inspiration. And with master recipes for stocks and sauces, a photographic guide to ingredients, and tips on choosing a wok and seasoning a clay pot, this definitive reference will finally secure Vietnamese food in the home cook’s repertoire. Infused with the author’s stories and experiences, from his early days as a refugee to his current culinary success, Vietnamese Home Cooking is a personal and accessible guide to real Vietnamese cuisine from one of its leading voices.

An: To Eat
Author: Helene An, Jacqueline An
Publisher: Running Press
In Vietnamese, “an” means “to eat,” a happy coincidence, since the An family has built an award-winning restaurant empire— including the renowned celebrity favorite Crustacean Beverly Hills—that has been toasted by leading food press, including Bon Appétit, Gourmet, InStyle and the Food Network. Helene An, executive chef and matriarch of the House of An, is hailed as the “mother of fusion” and was inducted into the Smithsonian Institute for her signature style that brings together Vietnamese, French, and California-fresh influences. Now her daughter Jacqueline tells the family story and shares her mother's delicious and previously “secret” recipes, including “Mama's” Beef Pho, Drunken Crab, and Oven-Roasted Lemongrass Chicken. Helene's transformation from pampered “princess” in French Colonial Vietnam, to refugee then restaurateur, and her journey from Indochina's lush fields to family kitchen gardens in California are beautifully chronicled throughout the book. The result is a fascinating peek at a lost world, and the evolution of an extraordinary cuisine. The 100 recipes in An: To Eat feature clean flavors, simple techniques, and unique twists that could only have come from Helene's personal story.
My Vietnamese Kitchen is a collection of recipes passed down through Uyen Luu's family. Uyen was born in Saigon and spent her childhood there before leaving Vietnam in the aftermath of the war. She regularly travels back there to visit family and pick up more classic and modern recipes for dishes found in the homes and on the streets of Vietnam. The recipes in the book tell a story--about Uyen's family, about the culture of her heritage, about the rising popularity of this cuisine around the world. In essense, the food of her country aims to strike the perfect balance between sweet, sour, salty, bitter, hot and umami, and to cater for any occasion and time of day, every mood and ailment. Uyen describes some of the most commonly used produce and offers easy-to-find alternatives so that every recipe is accessible. She guides you through chapters such as Soups, Snacking, Noodles, Dinner and Desserts, weaving in tales of etiquette, personal history and tradition and providing evocative photos of her travels throughout. Popular recipes include pho soup, banh mi baquettes and summer rolls.
Bring the Flavor of Vietnam to Your Kitchen Salty, sweet, bitter, sour, and spicy: these are the flavorful tenets of Vietnamese cuisine. This exhilarating culinary culture is rich but light, deeply flavorful but made with simple ingredients, and filling while also easy to prepare. That's the message that authors Van Tran and Anh Vu wanted to bring to a hungry crowd when they opened their banh mi stall in London, an international city that surprisingly lacked the tastes of the authors' childhoods in Hanoi. As their business expanded, The Vietnamese Market Cookbook followed. The recipes are simpler than you might think but explode with the purest flavors of vegetables, seafood, lean meats, spices, chiles, and treasured Vietnamese condiments like fish sauce. Old and new favorites collide: Asparagus and Crabmeat Soup, Papaya Salad with Crispy Anchovies, Claypot Chicken with Ginger, Sea Bass Carpaccio, Kumquat Jasmine Iced Tea, and Crème Caramel. From chapters like “Sweetness and Happiness” to “Spiciness and Adventure” and “Saltiness and Healing,” this lusciously filling book will bring a little bit of Vietnam into your home.
