Synopsis

Vietnamese Food by Bobby Chinn, Jason Lowe, Anthony Bourdain

This is not just a recipe book but an authentic guide to Vietnamese food as it is eaten today, from snacks and street foods such as rice noodle wraps, imperial spring rolls and grilled chicken wings to his own fusion-style restaurant dishes such as tamarind gazed crab cakes with chive flowers, and green tea smoked duck breasts with sticky rice parcels and baby bok choi. As well as a comprehensive section on Vietnamese ingredients and what Bobby calls the building blocks of his recipes - such as sauces and stocks - the book contains more than 100 recipes and is interspersed with Bobby's foodie stories and kitchen tales such as his first experiences of running a kitchen, how he found out the recipe for the secret sauce on his grilled chicken and his off the wall tales of the more unusual food and ingredients. Vietnamese Food is a true adventure story for the palate and an absorbing culinary tour.

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.
