Description: The Foods of Vietnam received rave reviews when it was originally published in 1989. Selected recipes were reprinted in Bon Appetit, Cookbook Digest, and the Los Angeles Times. The International Association of Culinary Professionals named the book "Best of the Year." And because the fervor over Vietnamese cuisine continues to flourish, this award-winning classic is now available in a paperback format.
Author Nicole Routhier discusses the fascinating history of Vietnamese cuisine. We learn that Vietnamese cooking has been influenced by the various nations that have conquered and occupied the country over the centuries: the Chinese, who contributed the art of stir-frying in a wok; the Mongolians, who made beef a prominent part of the cuisine in the North; and the French, who contributed a passion for cafe au lait, French bread, milk, butter, and yogurt.
In addition to the informative text, the author has assembled more than 150 delicious, traditional recipes, which are written in a clear, easy-to-follow style.
The Foods of Vietnam will be a revelation both to those familiar with Vietnamese dishes and to people discovering these delicate, fresh foods for the first time.
